Belgravian Brasserie has elevated the culinary offerings at Matal Complex in Al Khobar.
When it comes to memorable dining experiences in the Saudi city of Al Khobar, Matal Complex is where it’s at. Case in point: Belgravian Brasserie has taken up residence at this waterfront area, bringing with it the centuries-old culinary traditions of France’s iconic Art Deco brasseries. The all-day fine dining destination features a bespoke Meat Atelier, fresh Seafood Market, and in-house Patisserie and Boulangerie, elegantly fusing the sophistication of London’s Belgravia neighbourhood with the timeless appeal of French cuisine to deliver a truly elevated dining experience.
An original concept developed in partnership between restauranteur Marios George’s Cavadore Group and Al Moajil Hospitality, the restaurant has ushered in a new chapter within the kingdom’s fine-dining narrative, launching alongside high-profile eateries NOZOMI and Hellenika in Al Khobar. Paying homage to the culture of traditional French Art Deco brasseries, it delivers authentic, sensorial gastronomical experiences for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. As for its setting? Belgravian Brasserie’s expansive ground-floor location boasts exquisite sea views that can be enjoyed from within the main dining room as well as its seafront terraces. The marble-clad restaurant’s sleek interiors, meanwhile, are punctuated with deep brass, stained-glass windows, and oak walls – all channelling the warmth and elegance of typically Parisian brasseries.
Fresh, high-quality ingredients, displayed artfully within the restaurant, form the foundation of Belgravian Brasserie’s culinary philosophy. The restaurant’s in-house Patisserie and Boulangerie lends an irresistible scent to the space, courtesy of freshly baked artisan breads, pastries, macarons and biscuits served straight out of the oven. The Meat Atelier is home to the finest cuts of US Prime beef, Wagyu beef, and Australian lamb, which are individually grilled to perfection for every order – premium steaks that have been dry-aged for 28 days onsite for outstanding flavour and texture included.
Unmissable dishes from the breakfast menu include the Croissant, Wagyu Bacon Scrambled Eggs, Smoke French Gratin Eggs, French Toast, and Belgian Waffles. Meanwhile, the all-day dining and afternoon tea menu features outstanding creations such as the Flammkuchen Tarte Flambee with crème fraiche, Escargot Bourgogne cooked in a rich butter sauce, Moules Frites à la Crème with fresh herbs, US Prime Beef Tomahawk, and Belgravian Brasserie Steak Frites served with signature sauce and salad. Looking to indulge? The Beluga Caviar is a must-order. It’s all accented with an extensive selection of premium beverages such as fresh juices, refined mocktails, delicately infused sparkling teas, delicious signature coffee concoctions, and decadent hot chocolate. That’s every palate, satiated.
