The Waterfront Kitchen in Jeddah

JEDDAH (Arabnews): The restaurant serves one of the best black Angus T-bone and sirloin steaks, but an option not to be missed is the grilled tuna steaks

A visit to The Waterfront Kitchen in Jeddah is like boarding a luxury yacht serving up the most delicious food along with a lively ambiance and high-end service.

The restaurant is decorated in a modern and extravagant yacht style, and diners can enjoy an intimate evening with friends and family, relishing the eclectic flavors from the extensive menu.

The highly trained team of chefs is on board to create a wealth of dishes, from hearty bowls to healthy plates. The restaurant has an upper-deck style interior kitchen with live cooking stations.

It offers buffet options for breakfast and an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner.

Bringing global favorites to Jeddah at an affordable price, the breakfast menu includes classic American fare or a plate of eggs benedict or manakish (a flatbread kind of pizza), as well as a special selection of drinks, juices, fruits, cold meats and delicious baked goods.

Diners are spoilt for choice with cuisines from all over the world available for lunch and dinner.

For starters, diners have various options for salads but the must-try is crispy quinoa salad, torched yellowfin tuna tataki, or vegan tostadas. There are different pizza options cooked in the wooden oven. The pizza is made of specially fermented sourdough, which is prepared for more than 36 hours.

There is a range of pastas, as well as a selection of grills cooked on charcoal. The highlight of the grill station is the design of the grill stand, which is in the form of a captain’s wheel, adding a nautical touch. Mashawi, consisting of mixed grill kebabs, chicken shish tawouk, lamb chops, lamb shoqaf served with saffron rice and a mixed vegetable skewer, is a great deal for two people.

The restaurant also serves one of the best black Angus T-bone and sirloin steaks, but an option not to be missed is the grilled tuna steaks.

Striking the right balance on the grill with the right amount of spices, the Indian tandoori station provides the best-flavored dishes, whether it is the chicken malai tikka, the tandoori roasted rack of lamb or the jhinga tiger prawns. The restaurant also serves vegetable seekh kebabs, which take up to two days to prepare and are perfected by the chef to create a delicious texture.

For vegetarians, there is also a wide selection of salads, as well as delicious options such as cauliflower steak, vegetarian “meat” pizza, and different types of smoothies.

Be sure to leave a space for desserts, as a dedicated cake corner and 16 different types of desserts and ice cream are prepared by international dessert chefs.
