Camilia Restaurant Ruwi for Dinner

Since the area is still quiet we took a meal in Camilia Restaurant Ruwi before work starts again tomorrow. I’ve been a customer since 1986 and guess this is probably one of the longest established restaurants in Oman. I suspect Camilia has had several managers over its history and the current person must be the best there has been.

Rumba Lattina Restaurant at The Cave

We arrived after Iftar for a meal at The Cave, Muscat’s newish restaurant complex (intended to have numerous themed dining choices). Currently there are two choices of venue, one with a buffet that seemed to have been cleared – so we had no choice but to walk to the single option open, which was Rumba Lattina.

Strike at Lulu Supermarket

Arriving at the fruit and vegetable counter to get my Clementines weighed I was told firmly, but very politely, by the two Omani staff manning the scales that they were on strike. The staff on strike wore distinctive clothing and were asking for increased wage, bonus and better physical areas to work in.

Meal at Al Mandoos the Omani themed restaurant.

Though centrally located in Muscat it was a struggle to find Al Mandoos, the Omani themed restaurant in Ghubrah. It was found on the parallel side-road to Shell, just behind a small bakery. The menu had a reasonable selection that allowed choice without overwhelming the decision process.

Grand Fish Restaurant

We had a meal at the Grand Fish Restaurant near Muscat City Centre. It’s clearly a popular place, as mid-week all indoor tables were full and doubtless if it wasnt for the rain the outside ones would have been used as well.
