A great shopping break

Wonderful food here - a great mid-shop stop off. The novelty of buying your meat at the same time as your lunch is pretty unique. What surprises is the quality of the seafood on offer here - a quick look round shows just how popular the seafood platters are. Lovely fruit smoothies, attentive staff... read more

This place - especially management - needs a shake up. It's resting on its laurels and the customer is treated second rate. We ordered a signature dish, which when delivered to the table bore no resemblance to the photo and description - it was sub standard to say the least. The manager came over and didn't do anything in terms... More

The Butcher Shop has restaurants in both Riyadh and Dubai which I had tried earlier and knew how good they are, and I found that The Butcher Shop in Bahrain is also of top quality With service and Food. I especially find that their desserts are exceptionally good!

We enjoyed our dinner at Butcher shop. The food was delicious and tasty. We order beef espetada (You have to try it) and Boneless grilled chicken along with 2 elephant kids meals (Burger). The service was OK and the price was not that much.

Restaurant is located in biggest Bahrain mall just close to the cinemas. Quality and quantity of the meals is very good, just the side dishes are not always fresh. Of course, due to the location, this is not a place you can expect any privacy or romantic atmosphere...

For an expensive menu, I thought I'd be getting quality... No. I went to their branch in City Center, and while their service is not bac, their steak was! It tasted stale and the side dishes... I could get a better coleslaw at any KFC. Sorry, but you're better off to eat somewhere else. If you're in City Center, just... More

I visited The Butcher Shop located in the Bahrain city centre mall on a friends recommendation as he had bought some meat from the butchers sales counter which is part of the restaurant. Service was fine but not outstanding. I ordered a medium rare Australian Wagyu Porterhouse steak with baked potato and two sides. The meal arrived in a reasonable... More

I love this place, although inside a mall, the steaks are just excellent! quality of meet is superb and they don't ever miss with the level of cooking. End all this with a very reasonable, and even cheap, pricing, along with efective service and you got yourself a perfect score. Waiting to go back there!

Their food are quite pricey considering its location. But they have generous portions. We ordered beef steak, grilled salmon, lamb shank and shrimps.The taste is slightly bland ( am I too nice?) and the medium rare steak is dry. The salmon is okay and my husband and son like the lamb shank. Well, the whole meal was not that really... More

Seafood platter was yummy thought the calamari could be crispier, needed a noticeable amount fresh ground black pepper added to it and the coating was a a bit too bog standard. Steak was great - cooked perfectly, pepper sauce looked like it had come out of a packet and was very jelly like as if it has been sitting around... More
