Located in Khobar’s happening Villaggio Restaurant Village, this steakhouse is as hot as the steak’s are sizzling.

3. La Gondola
Venice comes to the Eastern Province in this authentic Italian eatery which will make you feel all the vibes of the iconic Italian city.

On the menu you can get your Italian fix with the creamiest risottos, wood oven fired pizzas and truffle pastas. Don’t forget to save some room for dessert.
2. Maharaja by Vineet
The Movenpick Al-Khobar is home to one of the finest Indian dining experiences in the Eastern Province. This restaurant by a Michelin-starred chef makes you feel like you’re in an old Indian palace from the second you step in with a grand chandelier and a bubbling fountain. The menu and service is equally impressive with the spiciest tandoori grills and freshest naan.
Fancy, fancy, fancy. That’s the best way to describe this absolutely stunning restaurant. A winding staircase, a huge chandelier, a grand piano and velvet chairs make this one of the chicest places in Khobar. As for the food, presentation is everything on the menu that mixes French and middle eastern cuisine, from steak frites to shwarma pockets. The standout here has to be the gorgeous selection of desserts. The saffron milk cake sells out quick and is one of the best you can find locally.
