We stopped at Al Boom after reading about it in the Lonely Planet, there wasn't a vast selection of restaurants on the Corniche but I'm glad we stopped here. In the penthouse of the Marina Hotel, we sat outside on the cute little terrace with amazing views of the corniche and thoroughly enjoyed some beers and their Seafood Biriyani... It's was delicious!

A great way to start your day is to have breakfast on the terrace here. You get a great view of the corniche. Our waiter assumed we were guests of the hotel so he brought food out instead of giving us the menu. It was a standard meal of orange juice, coffee, eggs, toast, honey & variants of jam for 3 rial each. You get to the restaurant by walking into the Marina Hotel & catching the lift up to the floor.

My second visit to Muscat after six years, and a place I couldn't avoid to miss again was the tiny Al-boom restaurant on the fifth floor of the Marina Hotel, in front of Muttrah's fish market.
A simple menu, but tasty food, and one of the best views you can imagine directly out of an Arabian night dream. Muscat's skyline of white houses, blue and gold minarets, palm trees, ochre mountains and blue ocean and sky grant you won't be' disappointed. And all for a very tiny bill...

A stunning little place. Great drinks and view. The seafood is good and can be excellent, if you are lucky, but there are the usual inconsistency issues.. Really quite good service, for Muscat
