Good dinner

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

The food is fair but the service is too slow and the place needs improvement in terms of hygiene. Overall poor experience.

I like this chain actually pretty much. However this was not a good visit. The waiter was pretty unfriendly and the meat over cooked.

I went there for the first time after a recommendation from my friend. I ordered Greek salad and prime rib. It was grilled as ordered, tender and tasty. The prices are on the higher side, but totally worth it.
