Bait Al Luban Omani Restaurant

Centrally located right next to the local Fish Market, this restaurant enjoys a spotless reputation and serves authentic Omani cuisine in a romantic setting. Book a table in advance to be seated on the balcony overlooking the sea and majestic Corniche.


Omani cuisine is halal meat-dominated, with Arabian and Indian influences easily traceable. Some of the typical local dishes include grilled meats, shwarma, and biryani. Muscat's seaside location makes for a heavy emphasis on seafood in local cuisine as well. Restaurants in Muscat are often located on hotel premises and cater primarily to expats and tourists (most locals favour cafes over fine dining). The variety of cuisine choices, however, is certainly impressive and ranges from traditional Omani to Indian, Pakistani, European, and Asian.
