Top 10 restaurants in Muscat – O' man you gotta try these out!

There is a myriad of marvellous things to see & do in Muscat, Oman, but everyone has to eat no matter where they are or what they are doing; so without further ado, here are Muscat's 10 best eateries!


Grand Lounge

A traditional Turkish restaurant run by Turkish chefs serving mouth-watering Turkish food! The food here is meticulously and lovingly made using the freshest ingredients found in Oman and the well thought out menu boasts a wide array of dishes ranging from classics like lamb kofta and more contemporary and modern dishes like the vegetarian eggplant kofta! There's also a fantastic selection of Turkish flatbreads to choose from including cheese and pastrami, and sausage.


D'Arcy's Kitchen

Styled to look like a cosy English home, this delightful restaurant offers a more westernized menu complete with superb burritos, wonderful chunky chips and delicious ciabatta sandwiches. It's one of the only places in Oman that offers an all-day breakfast!


Mani's Gourmet Café

Particularly famous among the ladies is Mani's Gourmet Café; a magnificent breakfast and lunch menu and enticing coffee set it apart from most other café's in the area. Especially popular is the café's French toast with maple syrup dish and spicy eggs with mozzarella and a hint of chilli! Along with amazing coffee, you can also order a traditional pink lemonade and a wide array of fresh juices.



Ubhar is the place to go for a taste of authentic Omani food. Everything within this restaurant sings of Oman, from its décor that celebrates Omani culture and heritage to the heavenly Omani food it serves. Don't miss out on the desserts, which include Halva, and after-dinner Omani Coffee with dates!


Fusion – The Vegetarian Restaurant

One of the few restaurants in Oman that serves vegetarian dishes! Alongside its marvellous meat dishes are some truly imaginative and scrumptious vegetarian dishes that are great value for money. Fusion has mini barbeques on every table which adds to its overall charm and creates a very relaxed and friendly ambience. Definitely try out their lip-smacking desserts as well!


The Restaurant at the Chedi Muscat

A fine-dining restaurant, adorned in glamour and elegance, serves a wide selection of dishes that originate from all around the globe, including, Western, Middle Eastern, Asian and Indian. The Restaurant at the Chedi Muscat is arguably the best restaurant in Oman or at least one of the finest! There's live piano music, four open kitchens and an extensive collection of worldly wines. The seafood dishes are of special note here! There are plenty of other restaurants that serve a similar amalgamation of food in Muscat, and another choice would be the Al Waqbah Bar at Al Wadi Hotel!


Turkish House Restaurant

Turkish House Restaurant is where you'll find an exquisite array of Levantine and Turkish dishes. What sets this restaurant apart, however, is that it doesn't just serve up koftas and kebabs, but offers Turkey's marvellous seafood as well! A fan favourite is the grilled fish and shrimp tajin with red sauce.


The Beach

As its name suggests, The Beach restaurant is located next to a jaw-dropping stretch of the Gulf. In homage to its location, The Beach serves up some of the best seafood dishes Oman has to offer including contemporary internationally inspired cuisine like lobster tail carpaccio, mussels served with coconut and Kaffir lime and whole grilled fish. Nothing will quite live up to an evening meal here, followed by sweet desserts and Omani coffee, as the sun sets in the background.


Slider Station

Styled to look like an American gas station from the 1940s, this innovative restaurant serves up classic gourmet sliders and a delicious range of American grills, fancy salads, tapas, and some truly beautiful desserts!



If you're craving traditional Indian Mughlai cuisine while exploring Muscat, then Begum is the place to go! This popular diner offers a lavishly flavourful selection of curries and traditional Mughlai delicacies made by skilled and dedicated chefs. While there, definitely try their spiced mutton kandhari!
