It's a churascaria type restauarant of sorts. With a concept whereby your domino like block shows to the staff if you need more feeding or you are full by simply having either the green tick being placed up as the sign to keep feeding me or the Red Cross to say "no more" as you are full. Would definitely recommend... More

A group of us came to celebrate the end of the semester. We had a reservation but keep in mind the place doesn't open til 8pm! My advice..fast the whole day before coming here! It was very very hot on the terrace even with the water misters. We went through a lot of water. The water alone was 300 SAR.... More

Loved the starters. The meats were tasty, well marinated and kept on coming. I would highly recommend this.

Il Terrazzo restaurant on the mezzanine floor at Al Faisaliah Hotel commands a nice view of the tower above it, and certainly provides enough to eat, but at 300 SAR per person without any drinks (even water), it is expensive. The restaurant serves bbq qrilled meats cooked on long skewers and sliced at the table. The marketing material says the... More

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

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.
