I was there for a dinner with friend at the evening. There was three different kind of menus available or then you could eat from outside of menys a la carte. I think cheaper option would be just eat one of the menus but we ended up just take a food outside of these menus. We wasn't impressed about appetizers,... More

Was fortunate enough to have had a business dinner here thanks to a great host. The view is extraordinary, over a growing and vibrant city. Probably not one to go to if you suffer vertigo. The food is excellent and I'd expect it to gain a Michelin star soon; the best steak I've had in a long while. If you're... More

I had High Tea here with a few colleagues I was travelling with and the view from our table was incredibly. Situated inside the globe itself, there are two floors where you're able to sit albeit only one to eat on (the upper floor is for drinks and smoking cigars). The staff were attentive and pleasant and recommended getting the... More

Riyadh maybe a large capital city... it is equal parts dead, door knob dead! No culture no history no activity worth the mentioning. In this back drop, this assumes a wow status and a must do. it has a nice panoramic view of a city with straight characterless lines and unimaginative concretes boxes and blocks. Broken here and there with... More

Go to the Globe for an excellent 360 panoramic view of Riyadh. This is a must go for anyone - at least once while in Riyadh.

We went as a couple to the Globe in the Faisaliyah Tower for the High Tea Brunch. It's probably a "must-do" as far as Riyadh experiences go, but it's not something you need to do more than once. The view is nice, but make sure you go on a clear, non-dusty day. I've also been to the cigar lounge in... More

Interesting location and very near the Hilton hotel I was staying in - not a lot of exciting things to see or do nearby, but an interesting architectural site.

Definitely a must when in Riyadh, a very unique and luxurious experience. Nice for couples and when you have guests visiting Riyadh. Service has always been top notch and the food is good but not the main attraction. That being said, I believe it's a one time experience for anyone who lives in Riyadh.

I was there with friend for dinner. The place is amazing, the overview and the location are great, We really enjoin the view over Riyadh during the night. The Service was very good and friendly.
