Literature, Words, Good food & Wine and other delicious conundrums

Intercontinental Hotel, Muscat

The Intercontinental Hotel offers six different restaurants.

It is close to Shatti Beach and several other good eateries and shopping malls.


The Al Ghazal Pub offers some of the best ‘Pub grub’,

my favourite being

the fish & chips and the club sandwich, both

are generous-sized portions.

The daily soup is a good

call for the smaller appetite,

this comes with a fresh baguette.

Free internet is available.

This pub also offers dancing nightly

with a very good residential band which

normally starts at 10pm.

A pint of beer goes for 3.100 rials which

is the going fare in Muscat central.

Wine is a much more expensive option and a

bottle can often result in a second mortgage!

(They do have a designated ‘happy hour’ which is worth looking out for!)


Over Christmas they excel themselves for tourists and expats alike.

At ‘Majlis el Shams’, the coffee shop, you can get a good cappuccino and

 french pastries.

I have also had good meals at

both ‘Tomato’ and ‘Trader Vics’.

There is a friendly newsagent where you can

pick up postcards, books and latest copies of  ‘The Spectator’ and ‘The Week’,

curios are also on offer.

I enjoy the interior decked out ‘Omani-style’.


This hotel is highly rated with tasteful rooms,

a large swimming pool, spa, gymnasium

and lovely gardens, it is also within

walking distance to the beach.
