Our World - Angelina Jeddah Restaurant

The beautiful Angelina Restaurant is a newer French patisserie and teashop that is located on the Jeddah Corniche, literally right on the Red Sea near the Fakieh Aquarium.  It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It is a franchise of the original world renowned Angelina located in Paris. The decor is decidely French art deco -  elegant, classy, and uncluttered.

The attention to architectural detail is evident throughout the beautiful facility and the huge windows produce a spaceous light and airy feel.  I couldn't stop admiring the amazing ceiling lamps.  One fabulous feature of the restaurant is that there are many inside and outside tables with a spectacular view of the azure waters of the Red Sea.

The beautiful cases of pastries and a variety of French delights in the delicatessan are very tempting to the eye.  Angelina is known for its divine hot chocolate and their signature Mont Blanc pastry made with chestnut.

There are two separate buildings which make up the restaurant separated by an open courtyard between where there is additional outdoor seating.  A large fountain is in the center of the courtyard along with a white modern sculpture, similar to many I have seen along Jeddah's Corniche in the past.

The menu is pricey but the venue and atmosphere is worth every penny - or every riyal, in this case.
