Great view but average food

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... read 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 highly recommend it. It's not a place for badly behaved children to be left on the loose, though. The food & service was great, but the experience was ruined by people at the next table who let their child run wild & throw a tantrum on the floor & scream for 2 hours.

The service and the food was great and the view, well, the view is amazing! Had the chocolate cake (was called something much better on the menu) and this is... More
