I would like to recommend you Al-Sanbok Seafood Restaurant. Aside from the nice view of sea and delicious food, the people are very accommodating especially the Filipino waiters Antonio and Orlando and other Filipino staff.

The best in town that offers sea food. Beautiful location close to the sea front, with plenty of variety on the menu. You are greeted with a welcome drink, a tasty one. Waiters are very attentive and eager to serve. The only down side was the soups, which came cold. Otherwise it was a great experience, and will be back... More

When you walk into the restaurant, the first thing that will be on your right is a very beautiful and large variety of fresh fish to choose from; which is the catch of the day. They have a great choice of sea food, steaks, meats in biryani rice; just to... More

The place is spacious and clean. It's well furnished. You can immediately pass the seafood selection counter as you walk in to see the fresh items to choose from. It overlooks the seafront beautifully without outdoors seating too. The service of the courses is perfect. Yes, it's not cheap, however it's worth every bite.

It is really a very good restaurant with good service which is hard to find around here . The counter with fresh catch of the day is amazing ! After dining in a few restaurants around khobar and bahrain we still believe that this is the best restaurant in the area. Really worth a visit .

I tried the branch in Al-Khobar and I loved the range of choices that this restaurant offers, but I believe this branch of Al-Sanbok is more expensive than the one in Dammam!!. So my suggestion to anyone is to visit the one in Dammam branch and tell us if he noticed that to.

SANBOK, Guest Relations Manager at Al-Sanbok Seafood Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review much appreciated, Sanbok Restaurant has no branch in Saudi Arabia, its the only one in the Kingdom of its kind. Caravella Restaurant in Dammam is a casual Italian restaurant owned by Al Sanbok Trading Co Ltd, and bears no resemblance to our unique style of serving sea foods from all over the globe.... More
