Description

Four incredibly creative siblings from the Sahli family came together to open this aesthetically pleasing Greek restaurant at The Zone. Okto (meaning ‘eight in Greek’) opened in 2019 as part of a secondary project to the already successful construction company owned by the family. Today, this thriving restaurant, inspired by a visit to Greece by two of the four founding members, has seen incredible success and has upped Riyadh’s Greek game with its unique and creative menu.

The bi-level interior has a close resemblance to that of traditional Greek homes and eateries. The lower floor features a theme of beige and clay-colored vases with similarly colored walls. Above you will find miniature dangling lights that come on at the break of night. The upper floor offers a much more luminous experience, with a large set of floor-to-ceiling glass doors sliding open onto a small roof terrace. This restaurant really lucked out on its view, with its view of dancing fountains at the center and a few of Riyadh's iconic buildings in the distance making this the ideal outdoor dining scene.

Okto’s menu will serve you the typical three-course Greek experience but with its special touch of distinctive flavors. An abundance of choice in starters, generous main courses, luxurious desserts, and signature beverages will have you eager for your next visit to this restaurant, even before your dining experience has ended.

Quality and preparation are key here at Okto, each item on the menu is carefully selected and paired to enhance each course.

First time… I really enjoyed it. 👍: - Ambiance and decor is simple and fresh - staff welcoming , good service - the seafood is fresh , sea bass in blank ink orzo was amazing - the homemade bread 🍞 was very good , pleasantly surprised - mini sliders 🍔 was excellent 👎: - the beef gyro was greasy and lacked flavor - fig green beans salad , cannot taste the fig, wasn’t fresh as a ripe fruit, nor it was dried fruit Happy experience, would come back for Greek food here again.

A wonderful recommendation. Fried eggplant chips, chicken gyros, were exceptional. Short ribs orzo pasta was very filling and delicious. Deconstructed baklava was tasty and the Greek coffee was spot on. Highly recommended. Cost per person ~45 USD.

Okto provides menu of Greek cuisines. In terms of taste, portion and appearance, this restaurant serves very well. It's just that some menus are a bit overpriced. Although there is no kids menu, children can enjoy a wide variety of their menu choices in general. My children loves the beef gyros, truffle fries (it's much better than other similar restaurant), and squid. The spaghetti I think is a bit salty and doesn't suit our taste, also served in regular plate not a warm/hot one so that the pasta cools faster. In general, it was quite a pleasant first experience eating here.

The Spanish risotto was out of this world. Really delicious. The Greek salad was average. The sea bass catch of the day was very delicious but too pricey. 3 of the other items I ordered were not available which was a disappointment but staff offered extra sweets and they were nice. So all in all the food is really good but expensive.
