High Tea at the Globe is worth every penny spent. The service is excellent and the views over the city are amazing. As sunset is always around 6ish or so, one will always experience the sun setting into the desert beyond the city and the lights slowly coming on ready for the evening's frenetic traffic. A little added bonus is... More

The restaurant offers 4 different full course meals depending on your choices and budget. I had sea food which was great.

Worth the 150 Saudi riyals cover charge just for the spectacular view whilst you are sat down sipping a cold drink or a latte, expensive, but worth it, only make sure you go up to the globe on a clear day without the possibility of sandstorms.

We went to the cigar lounge of this restaurant. The place is well spread out and dimly lit. Staff is courteous and well behaved. If you are planning a... More

The best view over Riyadh's desert, mixed with the most sophisticated food you can have in this city. The menu is French with great varieties. everything is superb; service, decoration, dimmed lights, and the taste. Must visit if in Riyadh, even for the high tea.

The Globe is truly an exquisite experience, whether you are there for their traditional High Tea that they do almost everyday starting at 4:00pm or for dinner. The restaurant and cigar lounge is the place to be in Riyadh as you can see the entire city of Riyadh under you from the highest point in the city. What better to... More
