“Tuscany at the Grand Hyatt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Food is very good here, especially the Risotto. Love it. The venue is a bit boring however, and the waiters fuss too much, a problem with a lot of places in Muscat. It would be good if it was a bit more lively. We dont go too often for that reason.

“Good quality, authentic Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Had lunch at the Tuscany. This is a very authentic Italian restaurant in the Grand Hyatt hotel, with views across the gardens towards the sea.

The meal was well executed, with high quality ingredients. The kingfish, in particular, was excellent.

Wine list was very good.

Staff were pleasant.

Recommended for a relaxing, semi-casual meal.

The food was good, well presented & served, tasty. The restaurant is very classy and has a beautiful terrace. The service was slightly slow.

“disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

We booked online in advance as we didn't know what to expect from the dining offered at the hotel (The Chedi) and wanted some variety. With hindsight this was a huge mistake as dining at the Chedi was among the best in the region.

The front-of-house service was brusque, verging on rude, and when we requested to sit inside rather than outside the lady adopted a face like a wet weekend and sat us opposite the bar.
The menu is OK, somewhat unexciting. Starters were fine and my wife's veal was apparently good. My Omani mixed seafood grill (OMR 17 / US$44 / £27) was one scallop, one sad prawn, one piece of very over-cooked tuna and two pieces of white fish (excellent), no rice, no sauce, three pieces of tired-looking semi-grilled pepper and a slice off the top of a tomato which looked to have escaped from the refuse bin.

There seemed to be a large number of staff milling around with little management, service was very sporadic.
Won't be rushing back.

“unexpectedly terrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Had booked for Valentine's dinner, but turned out to be fixed-menu which was a terrible choice for us. We always wanted a-la-carte menu which they rejected as the kitchen was too busy to provide. Unappreciative response from the staff of not providing information at the time of booking. Dissapointing!
