This is a great place for grilled meat lovers. The friendly staff will continue bringing food until you say 'stop'. It's nice to visit during the winter when the air is cooler, the terrace is comfortable and offers a great view of the Faisaliyah overhead. Make sure you book in advance.

Brazilian music and complimentary arrival drink set the tone, with an almost full moon beaming over us. we started with the amazing salad buffet and then the huge meat skewers started arriving. We tried perfectly grilled venison, beef, lamb, turkey and prawns. the Chef attempted making cranberry sauce for us! the staff sang and danced Brazilian style, halfway thru the... More

Although this restaurant offers a big variety of meat (coming on a big skewer, a server will pass every 10 minutes to serve a new kind of meat prepared in a different way). You have also the buffet with different styles of salads and desserts and rice. It is an expensive restaurant. Can be visited when the weather is good... More
