Spazio 77: Panoramic View of Riyadh
Spazio 77 is one of the famous fine dining restaurant in the Kingdom. It is a newly opened restaurant in Riyadh wherein you cna have a panoramic view of the city while having lunch or dinner or just enjoying an afternoon coffee or tea.
The whole place is very romantic, and cozy with dim lights and elegant design of the interiors.
The waiters are all well dressed with their black and white uniform with embroidery for head waiters.
They were all attentive in getting orders and requests. The food arrived just in time after every course.
The only draw back of their too dim light set up for dinner is that, your eyes will be strained after awhile but nevertheless it was fine.
As for the food, i can rate it as average. Personally, i can have the same meal in other restaurant and for sure they can have a better taste compared here. They have few food selections compared to other resto. The food serving is really small ~ good for one person who is very much into counting weight and calories but if you're damn hungry i dont think 1 order of their main course would be enough to satisfy you :-)
Expect to pay more than $100.00 for 2 soups, 2 appetizers and 2 main course.

Soup~ SR37.00 around $10.00

Diner Steak House: Steak!!!
Another steak house discovery found in olaya road, i had a great time dined in here with my family their foods are great with different kind of steaks with delicious side dishes.
The embience is simple elegant with few family cubicles, service is good too mostly are attentive filipino waiters.
Their food are not pricey compared to Steak House.
Favorite Dish: the super tenderloin steak
Pizza Express: reasonably gourmet
It's great to see a 'gourmet-type' place located in a shopping mall, because taxi fares to restaurants are an added expense.
There is the usual family and male sections. Decor is simple and modern - there are some cool 'splash' painting on the walls. The kitchen is behind a glass-fronted counter in the male section.
The menu is kinda italian - with pastas, soups, pizzas, salads and dessert.
Favorite Dish: Garlic bread followed by salmon/dill/a kind of soft white cheese/tomato paste/dill is my favourite with lemon juice squeezed on top just before eating it.
The only dessert I've tried is the tiramsu (non-alco version of course) which is pretty good.

The Golden Palace: hot chill sauce !!!
Sadly I cant remember the name of this Chinese,but it was fantastic,we'd be in there just nibbling at the prawn crackers and dipping them in this lovely chilli sauce,slowly but surely it seemed to get very hot in there!!!
We'd ask for some water,slowly the waiter would walk over to us,inwardly laughing at us,,,,,(trouble is we went in there many many times...and always did the same thing,eat chillis and burn our mouths off).
As you can tell by the photo,we're colour blind,we've always liked yellow !!!
