ENCORE is a charming upscale space with a cosy ambience making it the perfect spot to head to after enjoying treatments at the CORE spa or playing tennis at the stunning tennis court, or if you’re out for a cool dinner spot in the heart of Riyadh.

The venue serves a variety of menus including a brand-new more casual courtyard menu served in the outdoor area, and then one for breakfast, lunch and dinner too.

More about the food


Visiting in the evening added a certain comfort to the whole experience, and the dinner menu at ENCORE will have you feeling full and ready for bed.

For our starters, we tried out the delicious golden fried calamari (SAR85) which was so good we debated ordering a second plate, and the unique aburi tac roll sushi made with octopus, cucumber, avocado, and topped with salmon (SAR70).

You’re doing something wrong if you don’t get the juicy Angus burger (SAR65) with a side of hand-cut fries (SAR30) and the decadent truffle pizza (SAR210) for your mains.

And if you’re anything like us and no meal is ever complete without dessert, then you need to check out the incredibly warm and nutty pecan tart (SAR55) and refreshing mango panna cotta (SAR55) which is the perfect sweet treat for the weather. Though if it were up to us, we’d get a full pecan tart to go too.

ENCORE Riyadh, Al Safarat, Diplomatic Quarter, Sat to Thu 8am to 11.30pm, Fri 12.30pm to 11.30pm. @encorerestaurants
