These are your celebrity-approved restaurants in Riyadh

Dine like a celeb…

It’s no secret that Riyadh has its fair share of incredible restaurants in every nook and cranny, and some A-list celebrities have even visited a few of the top ones, so if you’re getting around making your list of restaurants to visit, here are some of the celebrity-approved restaurants in Riyadh.

Mamo Michelangelo

Created in 1992, the famous Italian Provençal-style restaurant Mamo Michelangelo first opened in Riyadh in 2020 and has recently become a crowd-favourite here in the capital. Just last year, major actor Will Smith was seen in the restaurant, enjoying the Italian venue.

Clap Riyadh

Remember when Clap Riyadh opened a pop-up on a helipad? Well, the sleek Japanese restaurant has since set up shop in Ramla Terraza and has since welcomed star football player Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodríguez for Valentine’s Day just last year.

Clap, Ramla Terraza, King Fahd Branch Rd, As Sahafah, Sun to Wed 4pm to 12.30am, Thu to Sat 12.30pm to 12.30am. @clap.riyadh

Billionaire Riyadh

Luxury hospitality brand Billionaire, founded by Formula 1 legend Flavio Briatore is an entertainment destination and restaurant all in one. Before his MDLBEAST Soundstorm 2022 performance, DJ Khaled was seen at the Riyadh venue.



To celebrate Georgina’s 29th birthday, the Ronaldo clan headed out to an Armenian restaurant called Lavash. The family booked a private room and celebrated with balloons and cake. While we’re not sure what food the pair enjoyed, the menu is focused on contemporary Armenian food.

Already a fan-favourite in Jeddah, Madeo just opened its doors in Riyadh last year. And footie legend Neymar was spotted dining at the Italian hotspot in Via Riyadh.

Smokey Beards Q

Smokey Beards Q in Riyadh is already owned by an ex-celebrity, and when it’s being visited by top-tier artists like Kanye West, it makes it double the fun. The venue is owned by a former member of 2pac’s Outlawz Mutah Beale (Napolean).



Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted was right in the gorgeous Bujairi Terrace in Diriyah. The gorgeous venue is home to over 15 restaurants, each of which is cooler than the last. And one, in particular, caught Ronaldo’s eye; that is none other popular Spanish eatery TATEL. The Madrid-based eatery TATEL first opened its doors back in 2014, and its partners include famous professional tennis player Rafael Nadal and our very own Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo.
