As we entered we received a very warm welcome from the staff. Half of the tables were occupied although it wasn't the weekend. The staff were very attentive and they have excellent knowledge of the menu. The food was really great. I guess its the best Mexican restaurant on Muscat.

Great warm service and a fantastic beans burrito! The mocktails are fantastic and the combinations very creative. On the expensive side, but portions are huge, so you dont need to order 3 courses. Will visit again.

An upscale place, this restaurant is not at all light on the pocket. However, it is money well spent because they serve great food, play awesome music and are not afraid to throw a fiesta any time! They have good vegetarian options.

Be it the ambience or food or drinks or service, Pavo Real consistently scores high marks. An ideal place for dining. The margarita gold is one of of it's kind and worth a try. The starters are amazing and so is the food. Chicken wings, sea food platters and steaks deserve a special mention. Last but not the least, the... More

Pavo's is Mexican, which should say it all. Fine dining it's not, but service is good, food is edible and house beverages reasonable. We eat here fairly regularly when we can't be bothered cooking. Nice ambiance, reasonable prices for a licensed restaurant in this city.

Good place for mexican food, great if want to celebrate with a group of friends and are likely to get loud. Restaurant is so dimly lit that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with spectacles!! Cocktails are really nice. Staff is overbearing-smiling a little more would be nice.

This place used to be a standard-bearer for Mexican food in Muscat, but it is not the same any more. I ordered the regular beef fajita and I remember getting a generous portion of well prepared beef, a heap of flour tortillas and all the usual complements. What I got on my (still sizzling hot) iron plate was more like... More

Well located, great ambience, wide choice and a great bar. What else would one expect on a weekend for family dinner. To add to all the positives, a very courteous team to welcome the guests. Sea food is their speciality.
