I have lived in Riyadh for over 2 years and this is only the second restaurant I have been to. The reason is that standards are terribly low here and people just seem to accept poor service and poor quality and there is no complaint process in Saudi.

Cafe Bateel really stands out in Riyadh with its fresh and premium ingredients used to deliver creative meals. Their lentil and fish dish is great as well as their lemongrass ice tea. The desserts are light and delicious. We order once a week.

Yummy European food!, tried the fettuccini; it was mouthwatering, the ambience is nice, service was excellent and quantities just adequate if you go through at least 3 courses. Top quality taste and one of my favorite restaurants in Riyadh! a bit pricey but worth it!

I tried Bateel Cafe several times when I lived in Riyadh, up to mid 2013. Good light meals as well as teas, coffees and cakes. The family section was always full of ladies lunching. Good gifts - eg chocolate covered dates and nicely wrapped chocolates. Fairly good value. Friendly service. Tahliah Street the best branch.

Well, if you want to spend some extra money on dates and related products, visit Bateel. I can tell that venue is one of the best open area with oriental music, but the all-times crowd and the small space will make it less privet

Another great dinner, Chilean Sea Bass particularly good and cake as always very nice. Probably one of the best eats in Riyadh, mainly due to the cake selection and quality.
