Great location, great ambiances, overseeing the city of Riyadh. I have been several times to this place and used it always as a selection for business dinner with VIPs and executives, it always was the perfect place. Recently, after several month of not visiting the globe, I was invited by my colleagues for a business dinner. It was a disaster... More

Great view, great food, what more could you want? We had the vegetarian tasting menu and left quite full. The service was excellent and the view at night magnificent. You can go up to the viewing deck before or after dinner and enjoy a 360 view of Riyadh. Be sure to leave plenty of travel time. We were almost late... More

This restaurant has a really nice view, which might be worth the visit for some, but the food which is costly might i add, is less than average. i'd recommend a visit for a cup of tea not when u really want to enjoy a meal.

Experiencing the Globe is like seating in a spaceship over town. Just seat within this globe and enjoy a compelling view over town. To optmize this feeling of flying over town the restaurant is rather dark at night and actually seeing what's in your plate may be challenging. Food is of a classical refined upscale French cuisine. Service aims to... More

This was a location recommended to my group. We had not booked so took the chance on the day we went there would be a table available. The entrance to the restaurant is not obvious. You access it via a mall, and need to navigate a connecting tunnel between the mall and tower (on the third floor level of the... More

As a cigar aficionado, and new to Riyadh, I had to Google me a place of course. This was the first to pop up. I found it and more so found a great new hang out for me. I am accustomed to cigar lounges in the U. S. complete with great company. I found that here. However to give everyone... More

Visited with the family on 24th December 2014 and enjoyed a relaxing , comfortable treat while watching the sun setting over Riyadh and watching the lights appear . Being the City of Lights ( as far as I am concerned ) this was a really excellent experience. The coffee shop is a little pricey but the services is amazing and... More

luxury set up.. too dark.. short menu but fantastic quality.. having the advantage of being in "the coolest" location in the city, i think they could have done a much better set up.
