What a beautiful setting overlooking the Persian Gulf enjoying exquisitely presented scallops, tuna tartar & salt encrusted bream. The fish was moist & delicate. The service was 5 star and it was the perfect end to a relaxing & culturally fascinating holiday. We are already planning another trip later in the year

Excellent food, we all had steak cooked as we had asked and a lovely wine to go with it. The restaurant has supplied a birthday cake even with only 7 hours notice. Lovely staff.
