I longed for Ramadan evenings in this restaurant, just to get some peace without the adrenaline rush of the service staff and customers alike. Furthermore I am enjoying the attention , which normaly there is little time for it. The food is excellent as usual, the views beautiful , and the tranquility 5 stars. Wonderful.

Fair said , the dinner was great and... More

We stopped with our bikes on this island and headed to Al Sanbok Restaurant for our lunch, one of our colleagues is a marine biologist , and he pointed out the extreme freshness of fish this restaurant was displaying on their huge counters. He choose for us the lunch variety and the verdict ? Superb!

This is a good sea food restaurant, but not the best! I didn't feel the luxury when i visited this place .. Nothing special in the service or the decoration. .

The restaurant used to be one of the best in the Eastern provence, however their service and quality has declined drastically behind in the last 3 years. They charge a fortune for a meal you can get for 1/2 price in many other sea food restaurants in town. I tried to help by talking to their management, hopefully things has... More

From the moment you enter this restaurant, the fish and shellfish display is incredible . All sorts of verietys are available for your enjoyment, cooked in the most peculiar ways and style. The sea views add to the feeling of the place , and the food and service here is the best you will ever find in Saudi. Enjoy it.
