Honorable exceptions exist, of course, but outside Muscat, good places to eat are few and far between. Where to eat There are plenty of places to eat in Oman, although few have any airs and graces. The basic eating venue is the café. At their simplest, these can be nothing more than a functional little room with plastic furniture and a strictly limited range of food and drink – perhaps one type of shwarma...
