“Beautiful Meal”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We were staying in Al Husn and reserved a table at Bait Al Bahr. When we arrived the table was covered in rose petals and candles. The food was exquisite both my wife and I had the 'Seafood Market' with fresh caught fish which you could pick out yourself.

The staff were very helpful and attentive and the restaurant itself was beautiful. Good wine selection also.

“Best sea food restaurant”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

There are several good restuarants in Muscat,Oman, Bait Al Bahr stand out as one of the best sea food restuarant.s The catch is from Gulf Oman. The chef prepared a very speical recipe for our dinner which was excellent.
While in Oman, it is worth visiting couple of times to taste their set menu or al a carte, you will visit them again.Their service is also very good and ambiance is nice. Wish to visit them again

“Consistently excellent!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over two years. It is consistently excellent for food and service. We've eaten al a carte and fixed menus, for example Valentines Day. It has to be remembered that its on a 5 Star resort and most ingredients need to be brought into the country. Cheap, it isn't. We have enjoyed every visit. The setting on the coast and between low mountains is exquisite. The weather in the high season, European winter, is excellent for outside dining. Highly recommended!

“average seafood with a lovely view”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Dinner at bair al bahr at the Shangri La was overall better than the other venues at the resort but the meal was inconsistent. The shrimp and scallop
starter was excellent while the seafood trio was mediocre bordering on bad. The tiny marinated
octopus was so tough it was inedible and the crab on spinach was bland and tasted ony of seawater - I like seawater at the beach but not in my food!. The
single cooked shrimp was the only edible thing on my starter plate. the mains of fresh fish lived up to expectations of 5 star resort dining - moist fresh and lightly seasoned cod and
kingfish were well done. Coconut parfait dessert was excellent! Wedge slices of
coconut parfait were accented by homemade chocolate batons and an unfortunately
thoroughly melted lemon granita. Lovely presentation though!. The hotel enjoys a captive dining audience and though they do try their best the food is not deserving of the
resort's 5* rating. the service is exceptional and the food presentation is lovely but in a country where spices and seasonings abound why is everything so bland and tasteless?
