Reviewed June 26, 2014

Tropicana is located at the Crowne Plaza hotel. It offers open buffet as well as a' la carte.
Their buffets are simply sumptuous and beyond delicious offering a wide variety of everything.

Their starters buffet is per se a full meal.
Cold cuts, salads, sushis, delicatessen, smoked salmon.

They have different them buffets during the week, but their TOP one is the seafood night on Thursdays and Fridays.

On another note, their breakfast buffet is by far the best in town among all of the 5 start restaurants. It costs OMR.14 / person, but offers an endless variety of excellent food, not to mention the breathtaking morning view outside.

Highly recommended.

Quite predictable fare. I am sure some innovation can make the choices more interesting. The use of seasonal fruits and reworking the ice creams to make them more natural tasting would help.

I'm not that fan of hotel foods due to there open buffet food ! But after trying the Tropicana, i start to change my mind.. there food is one of the unique places where you go there and enjoy most of what they have with a lovely atmosphere and enjoy a new taste every time you giving them a shot !

They have great sea view with nice pool, not to mention there lovely special event at night which run once every week (sea food night, BBQ night, arabian night... etc)

Overall you would love going there and enjoy there food.

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner several times during our stay at the hotel. The breakfast was vast, varied and had everything for every taste. I enjoyed eating the middle eastern Hummos, Foul and Arabic bread.

They also serve gluten-free bread which was good for those who have allergy.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, but Pradjeesh Kumar, the assistant restaurant manager of Tropicana , needs a special mention, he was at all times very helpful, friendly and courteous and his attention made us feel like special guests. But we saw he communicated the same way with other guests and made them also feel special. He really is a great asset for the restaurant and the hotel.

The Sea Food buffet was great with a varied selection of seafood and wine package. There is outside seating as well as inside. But due to the high temperature, it was very hot to sit outside, especially during the day, at lunch time. There should be ceiling fans to cool down during the day time.

The interior is a bit drab and little bit like a cafeteria and could need a face-lift.
