Great food!!!

The place is great and I loved the food. I had a great brunch, and managed to bring home desert!! Try the Moroccan Ice Tea if you are going for afternoon drinks... The only problem is you need time... The service is very slow.

We enjoyed Cafe Lilou very much. The bistro atmosphere is very fun; the place is nicely decorated; and the food is very good. It filled up quickly on a Thursday night and parking is challenging in the Adliya neighborhood, so arriving early is recommended. Adliya is a great neighborhood to explore.

The desserts here are to die for! Could literally eat every single one. Also tried the milkshakes which were equally amazing! We had a main meal here too- the mini burgers and they were so good! Would come here again and again if I lived here!

I had breakfast at this place. Excellent food especially egg dishes, freshly baked bread. The staff was good and friendly too, except the lead lady and gentleman who could help with some smile

My friends and i, usually go to Lilou for afternoon sins. Their cakes are always very tasty and rich if only expensive. But it's like everything else in life, you get what you pay for and i firmly believe that if you gonna eat chocolat you've got to go for the real thing... lilou gets you that.

I ordered cheesecake from Cafe Lilou and it tasted heavenly. I even brought some for my family in order for them to enjoy it too.

If you really want to enjoy a very good and yummy meal, this is the place cafe Lilu. Literally, everything there is so yummy: salads, main course, and the desert is another story.

I will make my review short. I go to Cafe Lilou frequently. It is very popular among Bahrainis and non-Bahrainis.This place is probably one of the few places in Bahrain that is always busy, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
