They are generous with their servings and the fish that we had was great. The service was great and we enjoyed watching the sun set.

We looked for a place for a quick bite. First we looked at fresh fish, but that was really overpriced compared to other places in Oman, 10 rial for a rather small fish with a small salad (for one person). The day before we ate fresh fish grilled with salad, humus and bread for 4 rial for two persons. So... More

Located next to Al Ayjah Hotel just over the bridge, this restaurant offers a nice view over the lagune with outside seating. Food is the usual Omani/Arabian menu, fairly good and generous portions. Staff is friendly and helpful. Like many restaurants, it is open all day, we had a late lunch and were the only guests, which was nice for... More

Food quality was alright, although the prices were slightly on the high side. The view was not too bad. Service was not exactly great though. The lady, who looked like she might have been the proprietor, was dismissive and not too friendly or helpful. On the whole, this place is alright, but not exactly a place to go out of... More

The hotel staff is very friendly, and the food very good. I can recommend the fresh fish, but ask for the price of it, it is rather expensive for fresh fish. Great place to have dinner and watching the sunset from their terrace.

This Restaurant was for sure the best choice during our stay at Sur! Very friendly staff and even more important - very nice food ! We took the catch of the day which was a good choice. The fish came with fresh baked bread. Deserts are home made and also quite nice. All over a restaurant we can really recommend... More

This is a great place, especially for a quite sunset dinner. The deck and roof top tables are my personal favorites. They have excellent seafood and great selection for vegetarians. They are not the cheapest menu in the area but they do provide excellent value for money and a beautuful dining experience.

Food is nice and there is enough place to sit (in and out). They serve turkish dishes and if you are there try grilled fish and you will not miss it. Also their fresh bread is really nice. Kebab was not so good but still we would recommend it.
