“Another very impressive restaurant at The Chedi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

A long, rectangular restaurant, totally open on both sides to enjoy the Gulf of Oman on one side and a man made water feature on the other. Seating both inside and out, the spacing allows for quiet enjoyment of what was to be a sensational meal. Service is exceptional, the food (from what is a broad menu of mainly high quality seafood) was brilliant and the wine choices are plentiful, albeit a little expensive. The meal was well paced, with good explanations of each component. Highly recommended

“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

After reading many good reviews on Tripadvisor on this restaurant we decided to eat there and celebrate one of us birthday. Out hotel told them it's a birthday dinner when booked by the phone.

When we arrived there and talked to the hotel reception, she asked another worker to show us the way to the restaurant, but he left on the half way. The way from the reception to the restaurant is long, dark at night. I understand than since it's located at the beach but why lack of light and direction ?

We at fish which with lemon grass infused which tasted more like saffron with lobster stock , no lemongrass flavor at all. The food was good but not outstanding at all like what we expectation in such an expensive restaurant in a 5 star hotel.

They did miss little extra which makes it stands out like a special !..what a disappointment!

The ceiling fans didn't do much to cool down the weather. It was VERY hot in the middle of April and there was much mosquitos!

The service was stressful, rush and rush.. We got impression like we had to eat so fast, finish and go!

When we left the restaurant and asked the hotel for a taxi. We stood and waited for a taxi, someone else went out and took the taxi which was suppose we to take it.

The receptionists who were four persons were all busy with the phones or the PCs and didn't care about us and other customers who left from the restaurant or wherever and want to take a taxi back.

The hotel is far from the city center and has a long dark way.

Will we come back ? probably NOT!

“Great, but Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Plus: amazing location, in the veranda of a 5 star luxury hotel, on the beach; great service and attention to detail; really tasty food. Minus: I paid 60 euros for a starter, a tomato terrine and a glass of wine (and nobody mentioned that the water in my glass wasn't included) - and I'm vegetarian, with the exception of mussels (my starter), so if you do eat fish/meat, be prepared to pay considerably more; mosquitoes; only one vegetarian option, though it does taste good. Overall: if you can afford it, go and enjoy, you will definitely like it, and if you go with girlfriend you'll make her happy :)

“Very special.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Had dinner at the beach restaurant during our recent stay at the Chedi. We liked the location, by the sea, and the design. The food was really excellent and matched by a faultless service. Highly recommended even if you do not stay at the Chedi!

Great service, excellent food and the on the beach location was very romantic. Great place for a birthday or anniversary dinner. The staff are among the most professional I have encountered in Oman.
