Me and my friend came to Qeshm island soon after arriving in Iran so we weren't very familiar yet with the Iranian cuisine. We are both vegetarian but the staff went out of their way to prepare us great food that maybe wasn't on the...menu (Iranians love meat). The atmosphere here is great and they often have live music which we really enjoyed. Definitely worth a visit if you're on Qeshm :)More

Fresh seafood, we have been in 2 nights for dinner, we tried shrimp, shark, red snapper bbq. Their cooking method is a mixture of Iranian and European style. Love their fresh fruit juice and most important value for money. The location is also great as...overlooking the beach with wonderful setting for sunset as it open at 4pm.More

a really relaxing place for us after a busy day. You can have a view of the waves from the Persian Gulf and the kids playing on the beach. We showed up here several times for lunch and dinner to enjoy great seafood, a bit...of hookah and of course, tea. The staff speaks English reasonably plus, they have an English Menu, which is a big advantage of course. Recommended for island visitors.More

Passing a long weekend of three days on queshm island without a certain plan I was lucky to discover this beautiful restaurant/beach club/guesthouse. The owners put a lot of effort to satisfy their guests and help in every respect, no matter if you want good...food, a taxi, a bed or to book a tour around queshm and other islands nearby (e.g.hormuz, hengam, larak). Cooperating with trustful people (drivers and guides) they make your holiday a most enjoyable and lively experience that you will never forget. Every task is treated very professional and with good humour and attention to find the best solution for their guests. The place has a beautiful atmosphere, attentive personnel and very good food for reasonable price. While drinking, eating, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view on the beach directly in front of the restaurant you will have a great time! I didn't try out the guesthouse but my friend who slept there was satisfied with the quality of the accomodation. If I would come to queshm once again I would definitely choose again this place for hanging out. Warmly recommended!!!! Thank you very much for this awesome weekend, dear Annelie and Ali! Not spending my holiday at queshm would have meant to miss a beautiful part of a most beautiful country with wonderful and warm people o!!! Warmest thanks and regards, HeikeMore

Really loved the view at this restaurant since it is located literally on the beach. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Staff was very courteous and spoke decent English. However, food was hit and miss. Ordered a pizza and french fries here. Pizza was...okay but vegetables in it seemed to be very raw. Whereas the French fries were cold and they gave used ketchup along with it(must have picked it up from some other table without checking if it had been used or not) Prices are cheap, I paid only 3 Euros for 2 course meal with 2 drinks So, they can work on the food part, but view is kind of unbeatable.More

I prefer to use tripe adviser app for choosing resturant so l did it again. This resturant was at the toppest of the list. The place was great. A Beach with a beautiful view. But the food was not very good. I ordered free alcohol...beer . But there wasn’t.so I ordered cola light( zero) but unfortunately there wasn’t either. So asked if there was some water for drinking. Sea food was good but not excellent. We had better sea food in other resturant( Like Azizi resturant in city center 1)but my children liked fast food( special pizza).More

We had a nice meal in front of the sea, they have fish and all the typical Iranian food. The place is comfortable, the staff speaks English and is very helpful . You can also have tea and water pipe while looking at the sea...and listening to live traditional music.You can also rent a room in a transformed container in the backyard which is very clean and well furnished.More

I enjoyed a couple of sunsets at this beautiful place. Having great food and good tea on the terrace while looking at the persian gulf and a chat with Annelie and Ali was all I could ask for. The waiters and waitress are super polite...and the atmosphere when the live music starts is electrifying. No doubt one of my favorite places on the island.More

I usually never leave such reviews but this time I think it’s worth flagging. After a very warm welcome, the owner took the time to talk to us and make us feel at home. Five of us were travelling through qeshm to hormoz on what...turned out to be a very busy weekend on the islands. The owner kindly offered to help us book a place on hormoz. After a few phone calls he tells us the cheapest option is a guest house that can have us for 40$. This is twice as much as we’d paid anywhere else in Iran but the owner tells us hostels on hormoz are going for 15$/pers that weekend. We have no reason to doubt his honesty and although the ‘pay me in cash I’ll book it for you’ sounds a bit dodgy we decide to go for it. Once there we find out by chance that the price is half of what we’ve been charged by the restaurant owner - and other places are going for similar prices. I call him back and play it dumb asking if he’d booked us in for two nights. He claims there’s been a misunderstanding, that he must have been given the wrong price, and kindly accepts to book us in for an extra night with our money - that’s still in his pocket. We’d been used to middle men taking a commission which is only normal if they’re helping us out but this was a proper scam. Fish was fresh but overcooked and overpriced.More
