Very Good - Buffet Night (Thursday)

We just visited the restaurant, gym and poolside. Olivos Restaurant & Terrace: Took in the Thursday night buffet. Cost was about 20 OMR per person (not including taxes +4 OMR each). Buffet was small but good quality, it included fish, chicken, pork (but on a separate table!), potato gratin... read more

This restaurant in the Raddison Blue Hotel has a very nice setting. You can eat inside in a nice setting, or outside near the pool. However the food was pretty average. We had the pizza and didn't even eat half of it as it had no flavor. Would not eat here again.

Great food, great service, reasonable prices. What more can one ask...? The surroundings are every bit as lovely as the service with a choice of dining by the beautiful pool, under the shade on the terrace or in the air conditioned indoor area.

had breakfast there twice on my last trip to Muscat. the buffet is OK , can be better. the selections are various , but not unique. service needs improvement , empty used plates would sit on the table for 10 minutes before someone picks them up.

Our food was fresh tasty and hot. If I could find a criticism I would say that the service was a bit slow as the same waiters tend to service the pool guests. Pizza looks amazing at the table next to ours. I had nasai goreng which was beautiful and my hubby got a burger. Bottles of water were expensive... More

The breakfasts here are good with much choice for all tastes. Had lunch and dinner here as well. The menu is decent, but limited especially if you have both meals there. It might be better if there was a slightly different dinner menu, and I don't necessarily mean a buffet. There are other choices outside and one could get bored... More

Had a late afternoon lunch here with four business colleagues. The service was attentive but slow and whilst the food was reasonably tasty the portions were too large. Ate here again for lunch two days later and the pattern of the previous visit repeated itself.

Went there with my manger to have breakfast in Ramadn's open buffet. The food was good but not much varieties, was not superb. The outdoor sitting was near the hotel pool which was not nice at all with guests everywhere near you "No Privacy on both sides" I will only go there only if I have no other options.

It's a nice formal restaurant with good ambience, dinner time it's looks amazing with candle light. On my last visit, I ordered Caesar shrimp and grilled hammour. Caesar salad was average but grilled hammour was delicious, it's the best hammour I ever ate in Muscat. Service is also very good, Naveen is very good server, he explained food very well.... More
