“Beautiful area”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I live five minutes away from Khobar corniche, it is a really nice area for dining, having a cup of coffee or even just a walk by the gulf. The central part of the corniche has a very nice walking area with the water on one side and a well cared for green area on the other side with benches for resting on both sides. this area is about one kilometer long. to the north of this area the corniche is intended for people who want to picnic away from the noise of traffic and restaurant goers. the south end of the corniche curves to the left with few expensive restaurants in the center. There is a wide range of restaurants lining the corniche road ranging from fast food shops to higher scale restaurants. My favorite shawarma take out place is shrimpy, for finer dining Uptown offers excellent steaks, salads and desert, amici is the best for lobster thermidor and if you prefer chinese food Tandori Restaurant is the one for you. There are many other good restaurants along with many coffee shops and the safeway which is open 24 hours.

Just be ware if you plan to spend time out doors, it is too hot and humid between June- October. If you want to exercise during these months, it is best to do it before 7 am or after 6 pm.

“A Must go Street”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Corniche is street where evey Resturant you can imagine is there. Sea view is a wonderful place for singles and families where landscape with kids playground and 2KM walking track. You can grab any sandwich from a near by Resturant and set in front of the sea on a stone chairs for public. le Meridiean is on the same street as well as many hotels. Some shopping centers and hypermarkets are there.

One more thing, it gets really crowded in the weekends but it is worth a go.

“Corniche”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This fascinating view will be an spectacular sight when the ongoing construction is completed.As of the moment the place is in terrible shape with all the construction equipment and tons of boulders and construction materials scatterred all around the vicinity..In a year's time maybe,it will be a sight to behold,,but as of the moment it's not an advisable place to visit.
