The restaurant boasts an installation by the Italian designer Jacopo Foggini. Located on the ceiling, it is inspired by clouds and changes colour. He explains: “The new wonderful project has a sculpture that looks like a cloud, which covers part of the ceiling. It’s made by hand, piece by piece. It’s a long job and it has specially been done for Amar in Jeddah. There are 2,500 pieces, which altogether compose an installation on the ceiling. It will be the best restaurant in Jeddah.”

Amar spans indoor and outdoor seats, which include long tables for groups, round tables for two and a terrace with high tables. The elegant space includes terracotta chairs, wooden tables and golden wall features. 

If the previous restaurant’s menus are anything to go by, we’re expecting salads, hot and cold mezze, raw meat, grilled dishes, fresh fish and vegetables. Plus, Amar’s popular desserts include brownies, chocolate fondant, knafeh, othmaliye and profiteroles.
