With stunning views overlooking Al Faisaliah's gorgeous landscaped plaza, IL Terrazzo features Brazilian barbeque prepared in accordance to a 300-year-old South American tradition. A variety of succulent meats are seasoned and slow-roasted to perfection over an open fire, a fresh salad bar, an appetizer buffet and a lavish dessert buffet. IL Terrazzo is certainly the venue for an exceptional meal for both visitors to Saudi Arabia and residents of Riyadh alike.

Business Dinner a La nice weather!

I dined at Il Terrazzo with colleagues from work and the food was really good but a few days earlier the food was horrible when I went there with friends over a weekend. I guess weeknights have better people grilling meat while weekends mean dry meat!

The experience is nice. Tryinf a variety of meat, the terrace ia refreshing and a change from all the closed space resturants! But would I try it again? I dont think so. The salad buffet is alright, the dessert buffet is okay, ice cream was delicious! But of all the meat they offered, only a few I actually liked.

This visit was our 3rd or 4th trip and didn't live up to our expectations and previous experiences as much as we'd hoped. The waiters were friendly but slow, the food was good but not great and the cost was as high as ever. I still love this restaurant, but they could use a little bit of improvement. We had... More

This is not my first time at Il Terrazo and usually the food and service are very good. Last night the food was terrible: chewy meat, dry chicken, less than premmium quality used in the salad bar. The service was too slow. It was such a disappointing experience!

For a fixed (relatively above average) rate, eat all you want. Very good meats and salads. One of my best options for family or friends. I have been there four times so far and no regrets.

I have been to this restaurant many times. The meat is great. The salad bar is ok, not your typical Brazilian salad bar, but rather something you find in an average family restaurant. The service, however is getting worse and worse. My wife and I went to the restaurant on a Thursday night. We ordered sparkling water for drink one... More
