Restaurants in Jeddah

Restaurants in Saudi ArabiaExpats will be more spoiled for choice than they may have expected when it comes to restaurants in Jeddah. A large portion of eateries do serve Middle Eastern fare, but there's a good spread of continental cuisines.

The city's larger hotels usually feature internationally inspired menus that should satisfy expats looking for high standards in a familiar setting. Alternatively, multinational fast food chains are also well represented. 

Regardless of the quality of their dining experience, expats should remember that most restaurants in Saudi Arabia are separated into sections based on gender and family arrangement.
