Afternoon Tea at Rosewood Jeddah


With its subtly stylish Viennese interiors and exquisitely detailed menu, Soleil at Rosewood Jeddah offers the perfect ambience of informal luxury. Whether you want to meet with friends, conduct a business meeting, or simply sit back with a cup of the finest tea or coffee, Soleil is definitely carving a name for itself as the perfect social gathering destination.

Adding a new flavor to its charm, the team at Soleil has reintroduced ‘Afternoon Tea’ into the menu, focusing on presenting the best-quality savories and sweets in the traditional English style. A time-honored tradition, remnant of the British Empire, this set menu is a delightful balance to satisfy your sweet and salty taste buds. The fresh-baked scones to the salmon canapé, a delightful smoked duck with pickled mango, and vegetable roulade among some other tantalizing concoctions, offer the perfect touch to your choice of the finest selection of teas. Executive Chef Amjad Ghandour especially prides on the introduction of Cornish ‘clotted cheese’- a rich cream, that is carefully prepared by heating cream for hours and removing the separated layer of water from the cream, which floats to the top. This, coupled with homemade fig jam accompanying the scones, do give you a hint of the finest English culinary aesthetics.


To satisfy your sweet tooth, the Corniche surprise- a sugary ganache, a traditional English walnut-banana cake, and a brownie add the perfect culmination to this delightful meal. Adding an Arabic touch to the authentic English menu, you can also opt for a date maamoul.

Presented elegantly on a three-tiered plate setting, with a dull tea light to keep your tea pot from getting cold, the thoughtfulness of the staff at Soleil ensures that you would definitely enjoy every sip, every bite, and every moment of your afternoon rendezvous. Attractively priced at SAR 75 per head, the Afternoon Tea special takes you away from your humdrum routines and allows you to indulge in the finest high tea culinary experience in town.
