Excellent dinner!

We had a great last evening at Muscat in this restaurant. Charming and relaxing out-door dining place which gives you a nice Arabian feeling. Maybe a little but hard to find? Park next to the Medinat Qaboos complex and walk up the small paved path that you think might be wrong :-). The food we... read more

Used to been going to this place a lot when I used to live in Muscat. The food is still good, but the service is still slow and sometimes incompetent. It's not that difficult to bring and ash tray and a lighter. Come on. I don't need to ask twice. I particularly enjoy the spaghetti colognes r because it's served... More

So far, we've been in Oman for five days and we have eaten in this restaurant four times! Is it the best food I've ever eaten? Does it have the best service? Cost? How about the ambiance? Probably 'No' to all of those but, in combination,this is an exceptional restaurant. We've eaten all around the world and I can't remember... More

It took us a little extra searching to find the restaurant, but we did (it's up around the back of the little shopping center). The pizza place next store looked good, but didn't write fit our budgets. Pizza ranged from 4.9 riyal up to 9 riyal ($12-$25). We ate at the Kargeen next door. Super cute atmosphere, very nice waiters,... More

Large restaurant with a variety of indoor and garden seating. The garden is great, especially at night, when the lightning is quite romantic. They have an exceptionally large menu with local foods, pizza, pasta , salads etc, as well as a wide selection of drinks. The service is good and our waiter on two occasions were very helpful in explaining... More

A lovely central garden with rooms and cosy corners off at the sides. Huge menu (including Pizzas as La Fattitoria de Pizza shares the location). I had a soup that same in a terracotta pot that was heated by a tea light accompanied by a salad and a stuffed bread. The soup and bread were divine and I'll be going... More

I enjoy the outdoors seating in Kargeen as it reminds of one of Cairo's well known restaurants, Abu El Sid. Fresh juices are nice. If you haven't tried the Shiwa or Mandy before then it would be a good chance to try it at Kargeen as they serve in a very nice way. I would go with the Mandy as... More

We were a party of 8 and not knowing what to order we asked the lovely staff to choose a typical Omani menu for us. Mountains of delicious Omani food arrived and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Beautiful garden setting added to the pleasure. Refreshing fruit punch was very refreshing.
