So here is the thing: I'm working in Jeddah (as 90% of the foreigners) and I found myself staying alone at a hotel for almost 15 days. This work to room, room to work kinda trips. Gladly, I was wondering where could I smoke some shisha and have a break from this routine life when a colleague showed me Al... More

So an early evening we had a business buffet at the Bilad and it was impressive. A great variety of starters with salad, the main course was a meat melody. Topped with seafood and live cooking. How can we forget the extensive range of desserts. A great place to have your Iftar as well which I've managed a few times.

The place itself has this kind of morbid charm of the 70th and 80th but the food in the restaurant is just great. Especially the buffet on Fridays is fantastic! The mixture between European and Arabic food and the quality of it is unique in Jeddah. If you like to eat Swiss and German dishes the Albilad is THE place... More

Albilad Movenpick Hotel, Jeddah Corniche Road is one of the oldest, but also one of the best hotels in Jeddah. Being a local Jeddah resident, I have not used the room facilities as such, but myself and my family were frequent visitors of the Garden Restaurant over the past twenty years or so. The staff are just wonderful people, and... More

We had a late dinner there a fwe nights ago with friend. Decor a little tired, but the food was very good (we went a la carte). Service was efficient and very friendly. Too late to fully enjoy it, but we'll go back. It has an extensive menu as well as the buffet and daily specials. We will be back
