    Went here last night for quiet dinner with my girlfriend after a friend recommended it, have to say i was impressed! had a very upmarket feel about the place without the prices to match. The food was passable but not amazing but couldn't really argue for the price, staff were fantastic and very attentive. The views are what really make this place, great for people visiting from out of town

    Views and service were excellent. However food was disappointing. Mussel and wine starter was superb but the lobster was bone dry and they cannot cook a steak.

    Real disappointment, it has such potential if they just got their main courses right. Mega expensive too.

    Advice: Just go for a drink.

    The view from the Observatory is spectacular. We live in the Marina and enjoyed seeing our house. Be sure to ask for a booking by the window for maximum enjoyment. We both ordered the Surf 'n Turf and decided it was amazing. Omani lobster tastes different than the American ones we are used to. One of our lobster tails was slightly overcooked but still great. We also ordered martinis from the drink list and liked them enough to order a second round. The berry flavored one was not very strong but delicious. The free bread and olive tapenade was delectable. We would have ordered dessert but they did not have cheesecake or Key Lime pie (our favorites).

    Yesterday 2 of us went to the Observatory to celebrate a birthday. As we should of excepted people from the brunch were still there but the staff were trying to make the situation better. As our waiter came and took our order it was so loud that we couldn't hear him talk it all. We ordered the vegetarian soup and a chopped salad (the salad included less then a half head of lettuce & 4 tomatoes costing 65AED). When our meal arrived one of the dishes that we order we thought was chicken breast but instead we received a duck breast. We also ordered lobster, when it arrived it was as biting into pure salt. The lobster was very over cooked that it was like mashed potatoes. It was sent back and they offered to make another one so we tried it, 20 minutes later the 2nd lobster arrived which was not as salty as the first one and it was not over cooked. However, when we were done the waiter came over and said "if you don't like salt on your food then don't eat mussels or lobster". We found this insane for he did not know what happen originally & would not try the lobster that was pure salt. This was extremely upsetting and disappointing. They provided a cake & sang happy birthday which was very nice but the cake was pure sugar and you could not even eat it. The air-conditioning was freezing so take a sweater!! Only good part of the experience was they did not charge us for the lobster. We will not go back!!
