Restaurant la Brasserie is located in the left side of Mutrah Corniche. This is a cosy area in Muscat, even thought some reviews on the net writes the opposite and make fish smell from the fish souq to a big issue. It isn't! I had no problems with bad stench. And if you should be sensitive for bad stench, visit this restaurant in the week-ends or at nights.
Great food, excellent quality, and good service.
Authentic Italian dishes, at affordable mid range prices, with one of the best Pizzas in town.
The only con is the surrounding as it is located inside a noisy shopping centre close to the food court, add also the freezing A/C
Apart from the that the quality of food is excellent, and the portions are quite big.
