During our stay, we had one of our dinners at this restaurant. Food and service were average (e.g. restaurant manager not present at all -> at a place like this a must; limited food choice; wine was warm). It is not a must, al falaj is much better. We would not come again.

All I can say is wow. Food was amazing, service very attentive and friendly. Price was right for the quality. The trio of lamb was perfection itself. Perfectly cooked and the quality of the lamb was divine. The dune desert was beautifully presented and delicious. I particularly love the use of traditional ingredients. All in, brilliant.

Went for pre-dinner drinks first at the bar and was asked if we'd like to order at the bar and we would be shown to our table when the first course was ready. Great idea we thought.
