Corniche, Muscat Governorate

Take a stroll along Corniche, a scenic waterfront promenade in Muscat’s Muttrah district. A bustling hub of commercial activity, the sweeping seaside road leads you along the spacious port, often packed with traditional "dhow" boats, the old Portuguese fort, and the lively fish market. Enjoy picturesque views of the mountainous seafront as you walk or cycle the road, and pay a visit to the famous Souq bazaar, an ancient marketplace where you can hunt for bargains and browse its labyrinthine stalls, which sell an array of antiques, jewelry, handicrafts, and vibrant fabrics.

  • Just been there for dinner. We were the only customers,which should always be a warning if all the other restaurants are full. There is no staff, the owner cooks and serves. 10 mins after eating, I had very serious stomach diseases. The meat tasted acid. Avoid this place at all cost
  • A good spot you have the restaurant but again its quite expensive due to the location
  • Beautiful place to chill out in the evenings
  • it is a delightful cafe with great food high above the market. if we had not gone up the stairs at the entry of the muttrah souq, we would have never found it. the hummus with spicy chicken and fresh crunchy garden salad was yummy and the lemon mint tea was most refreshing.
  • I love this place very much
