On a blustery February night, this place was uncomfortably chilly, even with the very welcome capes the restaurant provides to ward off the cold. It's much better to go here in the evening anytime but the peak of the summer. I'm not really a fan of this sort of protein-heavy food, so take my comments with a grain of salt.... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant-the food was great, it was nice to sit outside. The meat was great-I especialy liked the camel,.

This is a lovely place especially for sitting outside during the winter months. The starter buffet is wonderful and the desserts exciting but the main theme which is meat is a bit disappointing. Avoid the chicken with bacon - this tastes of pure salt and I have tasted better camel and beef. But is was definitely more than acceptable. The... More

An enjoyable treat with the best selection of meat and seafood. Highly recommended but make sure you visit with an empty stomach.

The starters were acceptable but the mains are geared towards meat eaters only. I asked for a vegetarian alternative and was given spaghetti which I waited 45 minutes for and when it arrived it was cold and unappetising.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and have enjoyed every single one. Make sure to go on an empty stomach and build an appetite ahead of time. The food is piled on your plate and it's all delicious. You will get all sorts of Brazilian grills covering protein from the entire animal kingdom (almost). Desert is heavenly... More

We had read rave reviews about Il Terrazzo and so presented ourselves around 8 p.m. without a reservation. As this was relatively early, we were given a prime balcony seat outside. A constant stream of water vapour ensured that we kept cool from the desert heat. The tasty starters included some excellent mackerel and squid. Our favourites off the main... More

This restaurant is in the Faisaliah Tower complex. The highlight is the barbequed/grilled meats and fish. The salad bar is not much to talk about, and neither are the desserts. Overall, it is nice to go out and enjoy grilled meat/fish, done brazilian style, and enjoy the ambiance and open air setting on a nice property.

We eat meat and fish cooked on the grill really good. The courtesy of the staff really insuperable, eat at the table as long as you want and completely relaxed, the atmosphere is enviable.

Was recommended this place by a local friend. Located in one of the latest hotels to go up the deco and views are impressive. On arrival you're whisked to a table, settled in, explained the concept, sold a few expensive drinks and then left to serve yourself from the starter buffer which is pretty good. Then comes meat after meat... More
