The FACT Dining Awards is returning to Riyadh



Voting is now live for the second FACT Dining Awards Riyadh.

After more than a decade of dining at restaurants across Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, FACT has become the authority when it comes to eating out in the Gulf. For a second year running, our celebration of the GCC's food and beverage industry has expanded to the capital of Saudi Arabia with the arrival of the FACT Dining Awards Riyadh 2024.

Scheduled to take place in November, the FACT Dining Awards Riyadh 2024 will see 37 awards given out across 19 categories, covering almost 200 nominees.

The FACT Dining Awards Riyadh celebrates the city's vibrant food and beverage scene with additional categories for AlUla, Jeddah and the Eastern Province.

Winners are awarded based on both public votes and critics' opinions. Each category features two awards, the BEST and the FAVOURITE.
