The live grill seafood was amazing and at a good price! The view and the atmosphere is also lovely. That said, we had a bad experience with the service, the waiters were not paying attention and were not very present during the evening. All in all a nice experience if you have the patience! Would rather recommend some of the... More

If the food had been half the price it would have been great, but it is far too expensive for what it is. We also had a very poor service, the waiter couldn't even be bothered to bring us the menu after he had sat us down at a table. That level of service continued throughout the evening. The level...

We had lunch here and was disappointed with Greek salad and warm tuna salad. The tuna salad consisted of chips in a sweet and sour sauce. Go to Baraka and have a better lunch instead with cheaper drinks

The Amaan Cottages has two restaurants: The sunset view restaurant and the Marina Blue. In both you can order the menu, which is good at a reasonable price. However, my advice is to go to Marina Blue and order the catch of the day. They have several fishes (Snapper, tuna, lobsters, calamaris...). You agree with the price and they serve... More

good food, ask for fresh fish early to be sure you get it and feel free to ask for a discount. Asked to pay 150 USD for a sea view room we ended up paying 100USD. There are plenty of other options to eat in the evening.
