Very nice interiors and this is the kind of location that you would hold business dinners or host your clients in. Not really a family restaurant. The food and service was excellent. Worth visiting.

I was taken to this restaurant by clients for a business lunch, and the views really are beautiful!
I think we had some kind of set menu, and the starters were absolutely delicious - amazing dips and super-fresh bread to scoop them up with. Yum.
I wasn't all that bowled over by the main course though - a variety of kinds of rice with barbecued meat, fish and lobster. The marinated and grilled lobster was beautiful, but honestly it was all a bit dry. Maybe it's the style of food, but I thought it could have really done with a sauce to go with it. (Or maybe it was the fact that the clients did the ordering and I never saw the menu...!)
I'd go here again for the views if nothing else, but I'd make sure I picked something with a sauce for main course!

We've lived in Muscat for nearly two years and for some reason have never been to this restaurant,,,,,,can't really explain why. Well we went there this week by fluke as Left Bank had no power. What a delight it was. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and explained by the perfect waiter. He was attentive but not over the top, which I really hate. The beer was even good, cold and really well looked after. We had a mixed selection platter with three types of rice and a small salad.....wonderful topped off by a complimentary cup of Iranian tea. Will I go back?? Too right I will just looking for an excuse!

We ate there once during our stay in the hotel. The staff are like most the staff in the hotel, friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed the food package which was Kebab including a glass of wine at a reasonable price. The food was plenty and delicious with great spicy flavor.

I recommend this restaurant for those who like to experience the Persian food along with good service.

Shiraz restaurant, I think one of the few Persian ones in Oman, is situated inside the Crown Plaza Hotel. If you can, and if the season permits, do choose a table on the terrace, overlooking the pool and the sea. The sunset will do the rest. Fantastic food, very well presented; the service is more than smiling and kind. Alcohol served, with a short but nice wine list.
The prices are higher than in a city restaurant, but we felt so satisfied after the first dinner that we went back two days later. Worth a visit even if you do not stay at the hotel.
