Delicious desserts and cakes, whether you eat there or order from their bakery. Yummy food as well! I specifically love their seafood pasta. Although they changed up the menu a bit now. They have good risottos as well.

The place is very nice to sit and talk to friends but the location is hard to find park for your car. Moreover, the prices is very high.

We visited this restaurant probably after 7 years. And it looked like we were not there just for few days. Still excellent menu (or even better), perfect environment and very professional staff.

Back home, I am afraid! Despite having been here so many times with friends, and colleagues, it never occurred to me how warm and family orientated this place is. On a lovely day regardless of the weekend, it's very hard to find a place outside, inside you must be prepared to wait a while, but once you order what ever,... More

I can only recommend this restaurant to anybody who visits Bahrain. All from the apetizers to the juices and desserts is extremely well-prepared (with love). The atmosphere is classy and the interior is beautiful. Go to this restaurant, maybe just for a quick juice of coffee, to feel the vibes of this wonderful place.
