The food here is simple but good. They serve mostly Middle-Eastern and Indian dishes that you could expect at just about any other restaurant. The view is the real selling point of this joint and many expats also love the idea that Al Boom is a licensed restaurant. Nothing like a chilled glass of wine or cold beer to go with your meal and the scenery of Muttrah Port.
The Chicken Noodle Soup was delicious! (RO 1.755) My wife had the Seafood Soup which was also good (RO 2.106). On this last “date night” we only had a light meal there (Greek Salad, Shrimp Deep Fried, fresh orange juice, seafood soup, chicken noodle soup and a large mineral water) and the bill only came to RO 12.517.
The gentleman working the frontdesk at the Marina Hotel, Fahad Al-Balushi. He informed us that the rate for a single room is 20 rials, 30 for a twin and 35 for a double. Not bad considering that these rates include breakfast and taxes!
Here are the contact numbers (Tel: 24713100, email: firstname.lastname@example.org ) and meal times if you want to call ahead. Notice in the pic above that dinner is from 7pm to noon! I think they meant 12am MIDNIGHT there! 🙂
Here is the view of Muttrah from the Al Boom terrace. I’ve had some good times here! The Marina Hotel (if you have a car) is a lovely romantic setting for an evening out with a special lady. 2 thumbs up!
