Description: After a nice walk on the beach on a breezy day don't forget to pass by D'Arcy's Kitchen. You will be enchanted by our cottage-style interior with its bright & cheerful yellows and blues, folksy decorations and homely gingham seating. The pleasant, and always smiling staff, in their cute country-style outfits, will surround you with warmth and friendliness. As you begin sampling our freshly prepared beverages and wholesome food offerings, you will slowly begin to realize why D'Arcy's holds such a unique place in the hearts & minds of Muscat residents; and why it has twice won the much coveted "Best Cafe Award" since opening its first branch in 1997 in the Shatti Al Qurum beach area. If you're in the mood for a more tranquil experience why not visit our second branch, which is located in a residential area and offers a slightly different and more relaxing experience. With its green & leafy outdoor "English Garden" patios it is reminiscent of pleasant summer living in country villages all over Europe. Over the years D'Arcy's has managed to satisfy its diverse multinational and multicultural customer base by providing a vast selection of items from coffees to juices, from salads to sandwiches, from soups to main dishes, from snacks to desserts. Some of our longtime favorites include our delicious D'Arcy's Breakfast with coffee and juice, refreshing Lime & Mint crushed iced drink, Caesar and Avocado Salads, Traditional Lamb stew, Homemade pies, Tuna and Coronation sandwiches, our famous Steak, Fish & Chips, Aromatic Marinated Chicken, Carrot cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Everyone always tells us how at home they feel in D'Arcy's. Whether they're alone, with friends or with the family they always find that spending time at D'Arcy's is both relaxing and rejuvenating. So, give yourself a treat and enjoy a cup of the best cappuccino in town whist reading the latest magazines or having a nice chat with friends.

I first hopped in just looking for a coffee while waiting for the bus and then i came back several times or for breakfast or lunch which was always great. they have a big food selection at reasonable prices with nice friendly staff. Fresh food and nice ambiance outside with a little breeze from the ocean. d' arcy's kitchen is at the corner of hay as saruj at the quroom beach and in the same corner there is also a stop for the tourist hop on-hop off "big bus"-tour and their shuttle bus to the mosque.

D'Arcy's Kitchen at its Medinat Qaboos location is a lovely little place for lunch. Decorated in a very kitsch, early American style, it is clean, bright and has good food. We sat inside in the large air-coditioned room. There is extensive outdoor seating and a couple of swings for kids.
My husband and I ordered a tuna salad which had lots of tuna plus hard boiled eggs, new potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce as well as delicious fresh bread and butter. Dressing was served on the side. Our daughter-in-law had a moist poached chicken sandwich ( served with potato crisps) and our grandaughter really enjoyed her toasted cheese sandwich with french fries. Add to that a coffee, two soft drinks and a milkshake, all for 18 rials and this restaurant is a winner. Staff are friendly and smiling. As food is prepared fresh, there is a bit of a wait but its not long.
Outside seating and a couple of swings for kids. Open for breakfast and dinner as well.

Love their breakfasts! Its a pretty relaxing atmosphere as well. It's a good dine out place even for other meals. It's not like the best place to eat, but definitely better than a lot of high-end restaurants in terms of their food taste and even the pricing.

Overall you can expect to eat some decent food, which will be worth the price and good quantity.

This is one of the few places in Oman where they smile when you come in. Taking orders and serving food is very lovely. Quality of fresh food and juice is best in Oman. Lunch menu is better than 5 stars hotels. This is one of the best restaurants that I love to go on weekly basis.

Not our first visit to D'arcy's but we go for their infamous Scones which were delicious. Unfortunately the menu has recently been updated and the Scones are no more :( Not to be put off we had in its place a succulent huge slab of carrot cake, a D'arcy's tasty cheesecake and D'arcy's Pancake, cream and your own jug of maple syrup. All plates were licked clean. American coffee, lemon and mint juice and chocolate milkshake for drinks all truly palatable. The staff were friendly and helpful too. The downside to this trip was customers were served randomly, it took a while for drinks to be served and a further 30 minutes for the munchies to turn up. But luckily we didn't have to rush off any wher., I did witness on two occasions whilst there, customers who left items at their tables and the staff running after them almost being run down to return their goods, now that's good customer service. Will definitely be going again!
