Bringing a slice of Greece, Spain, Italy, Morocco and South of France to Riyadh, this Sulimaniyah restaurant is the perfect spot for a flavoursome meal.
Villa Palma may not be a new addition to Riyadh’s culinary scene, but it’s a place that we would return to again and again for Mediterranean cuisine. Read on for all the reasons why.
The contemporary design
The 1,250-square-metre restaurant encapsulates rich cultural influences across the Mediterranean, bringing together entertainment and gastronomy to deliver an incomparable dining experience.
The restaurant’s modern dining room has abundant natural light, punctuated with colourful Italian-inspired furniture and artisanal tableware. The majestic Moroccan-inspired courtyard in the middle of the restaurant comes to life with live performances on a custom-made stage.
The mouth-watering menu
Villa Palma’s Mediterranean food selection is just as sensational as its interior. The extensive menu features famed regional favourites and modern classics. The ingredients are fresh, the seafood and grilled meats are magnificent, and the dessert selection provides the perfect end to a delightful meal.
Ease into the meal with starters such as tuna tartare, patatas bravas, beetroot and lentil salad, fritto misto, truffle ricotta, olive all’Ascolana (fried stuffed green olives with rosemary goat cheese), and focaccia di Romana Rosa.
For mains, stand-out creations include black truffle pizza, wagyu tenderloin, grilled whole lobster, salt-crusted seabass, veal Milanese, pasta Alla Norma (homemade bucatini with sauteed eggplant and fresh basil topped with burrata), and the mouth-watering paella de Marisco.
To finish, enjoy the decadent vanilla panna cotta, the basque cheesecake, or the flourless chocolate cake served with hazelnut gelato – perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
The vibrant experience
Open six days a week for lunch and dinner, Villa Palma also offers an à la carte weekend brunch on Saturdays from 12.30pm to 5.30pm.
Featuring tantalising food, immaculate service and an unforgettable atmosphere, Villa Palma delivers a dynamic yet sophisticated gastronomical journey that celebrates the vibrancy and warmth of the Mediterranean in the Kingdom’s capital.
