“Don't go on a "specials" night”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I've been going to this restaurant for the last two years, and all it does is improve, they recently changed there menu to a much bigger and wider selection of all kind of food, (and they added my favourite lamb shank:-) Service is good, music is good and all in all good, Except on a specials night.
This restaurant do a specials night once a week, and they do not get it right... they do a Spanish night, thai night, curry night.... all sorts, but they do not get the food right. Restaurant get full, service gets really slow and its just not worth it.
But do go on a normal night.

“Great food, good but SLOW service”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I have eaten many celebratory/holiday meals there, as well as some of their special menu events. The food is always excellent and gorgeously presented. The only downfall is that the service is historically slow as cool tar, with courses lasting too long to the point of confusion as to why we've finished one and are still waiting for the next. The servers are attentive, I think it's an intentional choice to make meals linger for socializing. It's overdone, though. I've often avoided going there simply because a 6:30 reservation often involves starting to eat sometimes up to an hour later, and finishing everything after 9 or 10, which is exhausting on a work night. Overall though, it's one of my favorite places to eat here in Khobar because the food is varied and excellent!
