Legendary Parisian bistro Benoit is coming to Riyadh 



The French restaurant will be located in King Abdullah Financial District.

Riyadh is welcoming international names from around the world, from celebrity restaurants to big brands. Now, Benoit, a legendary Parisian bistro, has announced that it is making its Saudi Arabian debut. Located in King Abdullah Financial District, here’s what to expect from the new restaurant. 

Benoit in Riyadh will draw inspiration from its OG. The concept was created in 1912 by butcher Benoit Matray and was a hotspot for socialites and trading. The venue prides itself on its bistro spirit and includes, brass, marble-like columns, paintings across the walls, and red velvet seats. Plus, a fireplace for cold winter nights. 


Over the years, Benoit has been passed on to different generations in the family. In 2005, the Petit family decided to sell the restaurant to Maison Ducasse. The brand expanded internationally in New York and Tokyo, and it’s now coming to Saudi Arabia.

If the original restaurant is anything to go by, we are expecting Benoit in Riyadh’s menu to include French classics. The tagline is: “At Benoit, drinking and feasting like kings”. 


The starters include Chilled Blue Lobster, Duck Foie Gras, Marinated Smoked Salmon, and Snails in their Shells. The mains include Organic Tigre calf’s head, Seared Fillet of Sea Bass, and Turbot cooked with half-salted butter. The desserts include Profiteroles, Classic Vanilla Millefeuille, and Minute Made Chocolate Biscuit.

KAFD is home to amazing restaurants, which range from A.O.K Kitchen to Il Baretto. Plus, it will welcome new restaurants, including Mr Chow, SushiSamba and Zuma.

The opening date for Benoit in Riyadh has not yet been confirmed. Check in with FACT for more details.
