I enjoy going to this restaurant. The view, the ambience and the service makes going to this restaurant an experience par excellence! The tea used to be more substantial than it is at present, with more of a variety, but the price hasn't changed, which makes it not such an attractive deal as it used to be for me. However,... More

Was there with a couple other of friends. Nice view over Riyadh but a bit strange (unusual) menu! Nice experience and enjoyed the visit. Prices are on the expensive side.

The best thing in this restaurant is the view honestly, although the food so normal the prices are not really worth it, our food was served cold, our glasses run out of drinks and waited so long to refill, my wuygu steak was well done while I order it medium well. You don't expect such low quality and bad service... More

Aside from seeing the whole of King Fahad road and The Four Seasons Hotel (Almamlaka), the view is just breathtaking. You got a choice between going to the restaurant or the Cigar lounge. I tried both but I certainly loved the Cigar lounge because of its setting and comfort for a an hour and half time. Funny enough the 'sparking... More

Each visit here will vary. Some days the buffet is a wide spread of awesomeness, while other days will see a limited selection. However, whatever they serve is always delicious and looks amazing. The views are stunning, especially after sunset. There is also a viewing platform just below the restaurant that gives better views. Ladies, in the main area of... More

Reputed for a great view and high prices, this I confirm. Very good service too. However food not perfect with a stringy steak and soggy baby corn, but excellent desert and great tasting steak with jus. Staff noticed the problem and compensated well. Oddly room was a little cold, warmer outside!

Visited with a group of ladies and we had an excellent afternoon. Food was all delicious from the spring rolls, samosas, sushi to the fabulous individual desserts like creme brûlée, chocolate mousse, cheesecakes and chocolate fountain and strawberries to name a few. The view was amazing from the globe and I would highly recommend a visit. Ladies can remove their... More

The service and food was great plus the view was really fantastic ... Worth to do it once a year from my salary cap but for those who can really afford - i'm sure it is very very good... All smiles and very helpful staff not to mention the level of quality is up to the highest standard ...

I had visited the Globe last week and it was really a treat to be there and to have spent some quality time - viewing the expanse of Riyadh city sitting in the Globe Restaurant. The concept of Hi-Tea was a fabulous one. The menu was excellent and we really pampered ourselves with the tasty cuisine served. Everything from the... More
