Restaurant Review: Skill On The Grill

Zo and I recently discovered this new place called Skill On The Grill at Prince Sultan Road in Jeddah and decided to give it a try. The staff greeted us warmly at the entrance and the manager at the restaurant escorted us to our seats on the first floor. As I sat down and looked around the place I was quite impressed with their bar-like interiors and the minimal decor. The live seafood counter particularly caught my attention so I went ahead to see what they have on display. They have fresh catch of the day and everything looked so tempting although I did not opt for anything from their selection.

They do have a variety of starters and salads but unfortunately very less options for desserts. For someone who has a sweet tooth and enjoys a good serving of a comforting dessert at the end of their meal is sure to return with disappointment.
For starters we ordered the Exotic Salad and Crispy Prawns. The salad definitely looked quite exotic because it was a rare combination of cheese, avocado and melons. The Crispy Prawns are undoubtedly the best ones I have had in Jeddah. The portion size is unbelievable for starters and the three different sauces they come with are simply delish. I love prawns and this was a treat to my tastebuds. Highly recommended!
Moving on to the main course we decided to have Chicken Tostado and a Tenderloin Burger. basically Chicken Tostado consisted of minced chicken served on a bed of fried tortillas covered in stringy cheddar cheese that is a party in every bite. I couldn’t stop myself until I realised I am done for the day and I must not pick up another piece. Honestly it was too good to resist. The Tenderloin Burger was also at par. We enjoyed every bit of our dinner and only wished they had nice things for dessert.
The Mojito we ordered for was quite refreshing and went well with our food. The prices are moderate but you won’t mind them for the portion they offer you because you might even carry the leftover back home.

Average cost per head: SR150 for three courses; starter/salad, main course and dessert.

Rating: 8/10. They lost precious marks due to the poor breakfast and dessert menu.

Forever and ever,
