Top 10 restaurants in AlUla

Discover the best restaurants to try in this beautiful historic region

The historic oasis city and region of AlUla, about 560 miles from Riyadh, depending on the route taken, is bursting with rich history and surrounded by areas of natural beauty.

Yet it has been open to tourists only since 2019 and has quickly built a reputation as a stunning place to visit. Not only does it have spectacular rock scenery that looks rather like Utah and Arizona, but it’s home to ancient ruins, including Hegra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once an important trading center on the Silk Road. 

With the opening up of the area, prestigious chefs and restaurants have rushed in to take full advantage of the amazing views, whether on top of mountainous rocks or down in valleys. Here the MCC team has put together a selection.
