This is just to inform you that I'll complain about your lounge from every platform including government security. Tonight I was at your lounge and I was abused by someone. The fact is no one from your company listened and took action. You can check if you have cameras in your business. We asked for help and no one cared... More

A great restaurant in a lovely setting of madinat. We sat outside by the waterside. Which to be honest it was this that made it. Preferred it to the inside. Food was fabulous though. I had the scallops wonderful. My partner had the wafer thin steak cooked table side. Will definitely go again.

Great spot in the madinad, but the food is not good. We had four different dishes and no one was really happy afterwards. Tuna salad is by far the best.

Located in Souk Madinat, this restaurant has outdoor seating alongside the water. Good, extensive menu, good food, good service, reasonable prices. Definitely recommended.
