Lovely ambiance here, stylish quality, but it is somehow not quite right. It has taken me 5 visits to write this review as each time there has been something not as it should be. Service sways between totally non existent to clearing the table so quickly that we hadn't finished eating. Food also... read more

Very average. Food is similar to that served in a basic cafe. No flair, bland yet expensive. Was much better when it first opened.

Went there for brunch with the family. Their dishes are nice and tasty, but some are just a bit overpriced. You don't need reservations

Been a richoux fan for a while since my first visit to the cafe in St. Johns Wood high street. Was pretty excited when it opened up in Muscat. Great location ( Royal Opera House ). Menu basic and boring, quality of dishes - dull. Service very slow and the staff was preoccupied with their personal distractions.

Set within the retail gallery of the Opera House, Richoux provides an elegant and quiet place for lunch. Sitting in the atrium of the gallery, piped classical music accompanies lunch. The food is good, pizzas are large enough to share and the ice cream sundaes lovely. The best cappuccino we have had in Muscat made it a worthwhile stop. Prices... More

This is a lovely coffee shop in the elegant Opera House Galleria. A lovely atmosphere, good service, friendly staff and good parking and access in an otherwise bustling city.

This place was pretty decent for tea and coffee. But if you are here to eat, then it's not ideal. Please do not go to this place expecting the standards from the Richoux at London. I don't think I blame the place because the footfall is just not present. Maybe the place will pick up and once there are more... More

Great service, shame about the food! Nothing authentic about any of the dishes here. Concrete pastries threaten to break your teeth and then you are charged for such pleasure!!!! Not surprised it is usually empty.....lacks atmosphere and the management seems to hide away!!! The redeeming factor is the service which is always delivered promptly and with a smile.

Went for a family dinner yesterday evening, and was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, and the portions plentiful. The Grilled Hamour was huge (covered half the dinner plate) and truly grilled - not swimming in a pool of 'butter' as is the usual case elsewhere. We also tried the Chicken and Mushroom a la King and Chicken Cordon Bleu.... More
