“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I've been last night and once again I was impressed by the quality and presentation of the food, andfor the super attentive service that the Grill team provides.
I only had a Grilled seabass with sautéed Broccoli, but it was just perfect. The fish was juicy and firm with a crispy skin and they served me two big fillets. The broccoli a boring veg for most of us,,, but not at the Grill, cooked perfectly al dente with a nice Chili flakes and a touch of lemon Juice to make them the perfect combination with the seabass. WOW
I like to go to this restaurant when I want to eat some great steak or seafood, I know I will enjoy for sure.
Service impeccable but not stiffed all the waiter has a nice attitude and smile.

“Great rooftop dining grill experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This is a new rooftop Argentinian grill overlooking Olaya and Tahlia streets. The mixed grill served at intervals covering chicken, lamb, beef and king prawns was excellent. The starters were all good and the desserts a step too far after all that meat!
The venue is part of the Narcissus hotel located on the 9th floor and is without doubt ther best al fresco dining experience in central Riyadh. The dining tables are located around a rather eccentric water feature which seems a waste of valuable space considering the potential popularity of this grill!

“Very Ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Tried the Grill in June 2014. The setting is very nice and the staff friendly and attentive.

I found the fresh breads and spreads to be very good. The drinks (smoothies and juices) were also very good.

I had chicken wings for starter and there's not much you can do with a chicken wing really. .. so no complaints.

For main I tried the mixed grill, the steak and lamb chop were excellent but sadly the fish and chicken were dry and over cooked.

All in all it fit a score of 53% from me with no desire to return.
