Took a couple from Riyadh to this place. It didn't disappoint. The waiters were so nice and kind and the food was really good. We all ordered different dishes and we all felt satisfied with the meal!

Went for dinner with my husband. Ordered the seafood chowder, calamari, steak and salmon. Everything was really tasty and looked appetising. The atmosphere was top class and everything was spotless. The toilets were clean too. Would definitely recommend for a lovely romantic dinner too.

The food and service are great. Staffs are well trained and hospitable. However, prices are slightly expensive. Nice experience

I would give the Al-Dhow restaurant 4.5 stars if I could. It's one of the best non-hotel restaurants in Al Khobar. The interior is modern, interesting and very pleasant. The service is good and the fish dishes I've had are very good. I've had the grilled squid as a started and salmon and the Moroccan Fish Pot for main courses.... More

I didn't see anything out of the ordinary but I have to admit, over priced, VERY much for the type of food and quality. I don't know if I would do it again.

stayed at the Ramada next door and walked across to The Dhow restaurant, predominantly fish based menu as you would expect with an unexpected interior to the restaurant, young team running it with Ibrahim (ex Bath Uni Student) at the helm.......very polite, very positive, charming and helpful. Well worth a visit.

Thank AdamJC-2013
