Fodor's Expert Review The Beach Restaurant at Chedi Muscat
The most notable of the sophisticated dining venues in the Chedi hotel is the aptly named Beach Restaurant, which is built on Atheiba Beach, overlooking the sea. Modern arabesque design—high white walls, hanging lanterns, elegantly curved arches, and dark mohogany wood accents—set the mood while the exquisite cuisine does the rest of the work. The chef celebrates local lobster, fresh fish, and massive prawns simply grilled and served alongside saffron rice; blue crab dressed with avocado and truffled mayonnaise; and playful, modern dishes like "Asian-style" salmon gravlax with black in grissini and kombu granita and lobster "cappacino" with rosemary whipped cream. In addition to seafood, wagyu beef, organic chicken, and pan-seared foie gras with contemporary takes on the steak house staples of creamed spinach and "deconstructed" fried potatoes are available. Drink pairings abound, from glasses and bottles from the largest wine cellar in Oman as well as cocktails and fresh juice mocktails.
