7 Of The Best NEW Seafood Restaurants In Riyadh


Yes, we live pretty far from the sea but that hasn’t stopped seafood restaurants from coming to Riyadh.
Some of the new ones are actually very good and we’ve picked the top of the lot. Here they are in no particular order.

Shrimp Nation

As the name suggests it’s all about shrimps here. You’ll get them in many different coatings, all of which are superbly Instagrammable.

Shrimp Shack

Seafood enthusiasts are sure to become loyalists of this cozy eatery once they try the shrimp and corn combination. While you’re there don’t pass up their Hamour with Lemon.


There’s a famous Iraqi dish called Masgouf and chances are that you won’t find it anywhere better than here. You see the huge spread in the photo here? That’s all part of the Masgouf meal.

Del Mar

Perfect for that family-weekend dine out, the menu at Del Mar is extensive that includes lots of local favorites. You’ll get to choose the fish that can then be grilled, baked or fried.

Fish Factory

Plenty of creative dishes on the menu here. The seafood pastas are absolutely scrumptious. The Macaroni Bachamel one deserves a special mention as does the Hamour Fillet Casserole.

Shrimp Moustache

Seafood restaurants have some of the coziest interiors; Shrimp Moustache is no different. It does have a weird name but the food here is actually good and that’s why it’s on this list. Their Seafood Paella is lip-smacking. So good in fact that this dish alone can make this your favourite seafood place.


Things can get pretty messy while eating here and that’s why they give gloves to wear. The sheer variety of spices they add on their dishes acts like a burst of flavors right from the first bite.
