A FOOD SCENE THAT IS UNIQUE AND FLAVORFUL

Muscat’s proximity to ancient spice trading routes from the past, combined with its present as a modern and wealthy sultanate, provides international guests with a culinary scene that ranges well beyond mouthwatering, traditional Omani dishes. Unique fusion reigns supreme in modern-day Muscat. Please note - dress codes apply at many establishments.

TRADER VIC’S

A lively tropical interior and music from a Cuban band defines the ambiance of Trader Vic’s, located in the InterContinental Hotel in Muscat.
