I always loved this place, it's different, from the seating to decoration to food, they are really good, known for their pizza balls, great Burger, and Oreo dessert (don't miss it).

Delicious food. Comfy place with good service. They are famouse with the yummy desert. Loved fettuccine carbonara and the rosted eggplant. The prices are a bit high.

We were a group of males and females so in typical Riyadh style we ordered a private room. When we got there, it had living room furniture, rather than a dining table, which made eating at it a little uncomfortable, but that didn't really matter, because when the good came, it was horribly bland, to the point of being inedible....

A refined place with a very creative/relaxed atmosphere and superb nouvelle cuisine for all the senses. A must do in Riyadh and a fun location too. Excellent service as well, which is rare to find. A perfect 10! Onwards and upwards...
