The restaurant is located in the Chedi hotel muscat which is set on a beach. The restaurant overlooks the beach (and although it's not the nicest beach in the world, it still has a nice feel about it).
The service was excellent. I had booked a table inside and changed my mind when we got there. The manager was very happy to find, and set up a table outside within two to three mins.
Whilst waiting for starters, we were served bread (Turkey and caramelised onion is amazing) which were all really fresh. The amuse Bouche was a fish cream which was very tasty with bits of white fish in the soup. I made the mistake of ordering a foie gras tortellini with mushroom cream for starters. I felt the pasta was too thick, and the dish generally lacked flavour. The mussels with coconut cream and kafir lime was excellent... Mussels perfectly cocked and the sauce complimenting very well. For mains I had the lobster tagliatelle which was served with a dollop of caviar. An excellent dish overall, however the pasta was a little over cooked (this made me extremely happy seeing how I prefer it to El Dante). The star of the evening was a simply grilled red snapper... This was the fish of the day. It was cooked to perfection, and came with grilled lemon and melted butter on the side. I cannot express how perfect this piece of fish was.
We ordered a millefeuille for dessert and it was the only item that was extremely disappointing. The pastry was thick and hard to cut through, making one believe that it had been made the day before.
The manager was extremely helpful when we asked for a vintage port and went to fetch it from the main restaurant as they didn't have it on the menu.
Overall, this was a great experience. I cannot wait to go back and have that fish again. Until then, I may dream of it from time to time.
