The restaurant looks nice (especially outside part with the sea view). Staff was friendly. Taste of the food was quite good (chicken tikka) but while eating we noticed it was raw inside in some pieces. It resulted with an unpleasant food poison (less than hour after leaving the restaurant).

Great view of the creek and local fisherman. Food arrived in average time and was hot. I would recommend ordering the pizzas or fatayer as the fish/prawns are VERY overpriced.

Went their twice: +: nice terrace, good food, mix of locals and tourists -: really expensive local fish, starters and mains come together even though we explicitly asked to bring starters first.

Highly recommend this restaurant. Spent 3 nights in Sur and went every day. Best Arabian bread ever, tasted amazing. Also the jumbo prawns were awesome. Great service. Mixed crowd of locals and tourists. Very pleasant to sit outside overlooking the bay. Loved this place!

Sur doesn't have much on offer food wise. This is probably your best bet and they know it. Prices and food are ok, if you stay away from the fresh fish which has an absurd mark up (20 rials for a two person red snapper). Place is nice. They have a terrace upstairs. Brings cards or book as the service... More

We went to Sahari after seeing a few good reviews on TripAdvisor and not having had a good restaurant meal in Oman as yet. What a great idea. There was hardly anyone there but the food was delicious and the service great. A very good view over the lake too, we loved it.

Lovely restaurant, not located on Google Maps but if you find the Al-Ayjah Plaza Hotel, it is right next to the hotel, opposite Omanoil Al Aja and just near the Ayjah city gate. We had grouper, kingfish, babaganoush (or mutabel in Arabic), bread, grilled eggplant and salad. It was all wonderful. As in most places in Oman, no license -... More

Although fresh ingrédients, not tasty at all, poorly cooked. Table well placed facing the "Lake". We would definitely not recommend this place.
