A lovely haven, so dont tell everyone. This French style cafe offers excellent coffee and cakes , lunches and lemon and mint smoothies. Perfect for people watching with its mix of locals and visitors thrown into the mix. All that is missing is a little traditional French music.

Their food is lovely and presentation is very elegant. Yummy juice concoctions, coffees... More

It is good, great taste, good service, nice design, but crowded and over rated by customers. Both brancher are usually crowded and if I have the choice, I am deciding to choose another restaurant.

Its a reassuring to see a cafe ,after years of being in business, keeping its clients come back and its tables full. Lilous is a cafe that serves salads and meals. It has two branches one in Adleya and the newer one in Alseef area. It is undoubtedly very popular in Bahrain. Today I went there with my family for... More
