Lovely fresh flavours

We decided to go here based on trip advisor reports & were not disappointed. It is well visited by tourists & does a roaring trade in take away with the locals. We had the mezzo platter, the small mixed grill & a cheesy bread & a Turkish pide bread. We were hungry & couldn’t finish it all. The platter had a range of lovely, fresh, zingy dips. The meat was lovely & tender. I would heartily recommend this place.

Try, why not

Instead of eating in buffet you get an allowance of 14OR,( £28)each person. the prices are fair for each course or set menu, now drinks expensive at 7OR (£14)for wine or 5OR £10 bottle of beer.The food was pretty good flavour, lamb shank so succulent.Dear Wayne P,It was our absolute pleasure to read that you enjoyed your experience in our Arabic restaurant and I will pass on your compliments to the team members regarding their service standard and to our chefs for a job well done.Thank you and we look forward meeting you on your next visit to our restaurant.Best Regards, Mohammad Jasim UddinFood and Beverage Manager

Expected much more from Anantara

Had this been a regular mall restaurant, I would've given it 3 stars. Because the food was just basic. Nothing bad.Just very very regular food.We were not guests at Anantara, we stayed at another nearby hotel but intentionally chose to dine here. It's the Anantara. Nothing less than amazing is expected. But because this restaurant operates at an Anantara establishment, I expect no less than a spectacular experience.While our waiter was friendly, we visit a restaurant to eat and we visit an Anantara establishment for spectacular and world class cuisine.Unfortunately that was not the case.The cutlery is of Anantara standards (see photo), but the cooking was not.Dear CorruptedSanity,Your feedback on the entire experience at Bella Vista serves as motivation to us. Thank you for the taking the time to share with us your feedback and for highlighting certain areas. We would like to assure you that suitable corrective measures shall be taken with immediate effect to rectify it.We sincerely await the opportunity to welcome you once again.

Reviewed By AvW12345 - Utrecht, The Netherlands

Food is fine, staff not very friendly

At first we sat inside all by ourselves in a room that lacked atmosphere. We found out that they also had a terrace. It's situated along a busy road, but it's a little bit better than the dining room inside. The food was well seasoned and well prepared. We especially liked the yoghurt salad. Staff is not very friendly or attentive. They do as little as possible. Prices are low.

Beautifully cooked fresh fish

We went twice to this small restaurant by the goat souk in Nizwa. They cook to order fish you choose from an ice fish counter. We had red snapper, tuna, prawns and some other whole fish whose name I can't remember. Friendly service. Bread, chips, salads, hummus all available as accompaniments. Delicious and such great value - it cost less than £20 for the both of us and that is with a lot of food. If you love fish this is a definite must.Thank you for visiting our restaurant

Decent Restaurant with good food

I went to this restaurant in August, 2017 with my friend for lunch.We were greeted by some humble guys without any smile. We were surprised to see the seating arrangement in the restaurant.A restaurant staff guided us to a well spaced compartment with a seating arrangement for 4-6 people.( I am not sure if they have bigger compartments also)This was a bit different from what we see in most of the restaurants in Oman.Service was good. They gave time to decide our order. Once we ordered the starters and main course was served with suitable gap. They also have a call button inside the compartment which you can use in case you want something. (This was not told to us by the staff. We guessed it and used.)The food was good. We ordered Indian food which was having good authentic Indian taste. We liked the food.It is a mid range priced restaurant.The only things which i noticed for improvement are as follows-1. The smell of food, specially fish and sizzlers travel to other compartments. They should have some arrangement to extract the food smell of such kind to avoid inconvenience to other costumers.2. They do not have the wireless card swipe machine. so you have to go all the way to counter to enter your pin, in case you prefer to pay by card.

What a find!

We struggled to find this restaurant which had been recommended to us by people in Muscat. It's new and we were directed to various different places by locals either because they did not understand us or did not know it. It was worth the walk though. I had the best date juice I've ever had. The service was a bit wild as they didn't have a lot of waiters but it was charming and willing. We sat outside in a kind of tented table area for 4. It was a bit chilly but there is indoor seating too. The menu was short and very good value. Cash only. I had a plate of falafel, hummus etc.

The 10 Best Things to Do in Muscat, Muscat Governorate

Muscat (Arabic: مسقط‎, Masqaṭ pronounced [ˈmasqatˤ]) is the capital and largest metropolitan city of Oman. It is also the seat of government and largest city in the Governorate of Muscat. Muscat is also considered as a Global City. According to the National Centre for Statistics and Information (NCSI), the total population of Muscat Governorate reached 1.28 million as of September 2015. The metropolitan area spans approximately 3,500 km (1,400 sq mi) and includes six provinces called wilayats. Known since the early 1st century CE as an important trading port between the west and the east, Muscat was ruled by various indigenous tribes as well as foreign powers such as the Persians, the Portuguese Empire and the Ottoman Empire at various points in its history. A regional military power in the 18th century, Muscat's influence extended as far as East Africa and Zanzibar. As an important port-town in the Gulf of Oman, Muscat attracted foreign tradesmen and settlers such as the Persians and the Balochis. Since the ascension of Qaboos bin Said as Sultan of Oman in 1970, Muscat has experienced rapid infrastructural development that has led to the growth of a vibrant economy and a multi-ethnic society.
