Expensive but.....

So we went of an evening with kids, it was windy but they provide you with coats to keep you warm. The food is ok for kids as long as they are not fussy. It opens at 7pm with salads, soup, bread and deserts as a buffet. Then at 7.30 they waiters come round every 10 minutes or so huge... read more

Close to 100 us dollars will get you unlimited everything, the meet is not near to a high standard quality. Salad bar and desserts were the best part of it, but not worth that much

One of the best meals you will experience in Riyadh. Meat heavy with lots of excellent desserts to finish you off completely! A 'smart-casual' restaurant for the upper echelons of business clientele. Chicken, Veal, Monkfish, Steak, Venison.... The list goes on and on! Service was top notch and the manager could not do enough for us. As the restaurant was... More

I dined here for the first time on the 30th December 2015. The experience was enjoyable from start to finish. I called ahead to make a reservation. I wasn't sure which restaurant to book so I asked for some information. The reservation staff were very helpful. I decided to book the Brazilian BBQ for a change. I arrived just after... More

The setting outside was nice and the service was OK but a bit slow. The meat choice was limited and the meat was not excellent. All in all an experience not to be repeated

Very rare for females to be able to enjoy this in Riyadh and was a great experience in a beautiful place. Our server, Robert, was attentive without being intrusive. The food was served buffet style and with additional servers bringing the BBQed meats to our table on very long skewers which they then sliced with large machetes! Salads and dessets... More
