Description: Dine along our 370 metre private beach where the creative seafood menu gets accompanied by a sublime Gulf of Oman panorama and paired with an equally impressive wine selection.

The beach setting was captivating and romantic, the restaurant stunning, the service excellent. BUT the food lacked excitement. I read the reviews and was ready to be impressed, alas is was disappointing. The sea bass was well cooked but the sauce and vegetables were a let down, the seared tuna was crushed by a cardamom dressing and the starters were OK, but just OK. Oh, and wear trousers its "smart casual" regardless of the +35 degree heat.

Very disappointing tasting menu. Mostly cold food and not very tasty at all. Prices very high for what one does get.

While staying at the Chedi, a dining experience at The Beach is mandatory. The restaurant is just beautiful and the food was fantastic. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing, and I can still taste the lobster lasagna with an amazing chardonnay. SErvice at The Beach was very good, better than the average service at The Chedi. You have to dress smart casual and reservations are essential.

Lovely beach front restaurant. The food is excellent, staff are very friendly and happy to chat, service is good. I know most people want to eat 'on the beach', and there is a sandside terrace, but if you'll take my advice eat inside, I felt it had more ambience.

The setting of this restaurant is magnificent, right on the beach and you can hear the waves.

The food is good and they are trying some different flavors and textures, however, I would have preferred that they focus more on simple and excellent rather than complexities that were a little hit and miss (e.g. the crab entree comes with a piece of sweet ginger snap, a flavor that is too over powering for very good crab meat).

Prices are also quite high and they were out of many of the more reasonably priced wines (which I think is very poor for a restaurant operating at the caliber) which made it more expensive.
