Great Experience

The Globe is definitely a place to visit if in Riyadh. I've been for high tea a couple of times when family has come to visit. The experience is what type really paying for. The food is okay. Keep in mind water is not included in the high tea price as well.

Over the past six years we have regularly visited The Globe restaurant for High Tea. Gradually it has become more and more expensive. In the meantime the service has gone down hill. When we first visited High Tea was 125 SAR. Now it is a whopping 195 SAR per head. The famous chocolate fountain was watery, at best. The choice... More

I've gone to high tea at The Globe three times and have enjoyed each occasion immensely. The food is interesting and delicious. There's a wide variety and it's vegetarian friendly. The desserts are decadently good. The teas range from strong and complex to light and refreshing. The service is excellent. It's also one of the few places in Riyadh where... More

Without exception this was one of the best meals I have enjoyed not just in the Kingdom but in the Middle East, the taste and textures Offered outstrip that of any restaurant... More

Paid a visit there with my girlfriend to celebrate my birthday. Service was very pleasant right from the start. There was a staff on the ground floor to confirm our reservation and he led us up to the restaurant where we were greeted by our server. We already had in mind what we wanted to order based on the menu... More
