Good location in the heart of well developed dining area near Gulf Hotel. Very close to Fateh Grand Mosque and Jufair area. Delicious sweets, cakes and baste rise good hot and cold drinks but quiet expensive.

This is my favorite restaurant in Manama. The rigatoni is fantastic and the dessert menu is top shelf.

I enjoyed the Mushroom soup with lemon and a great ice tea. The service was adequate they could use a good training consultant. The seating slightly uncomfortable but normal for French restaurant. I would come back again for sure and the prices and food excellent. You feel like your in the south of France. Overall 4 stars

A place to always go back to when looking for great food quality, generally quick and good service time, and deliciously crafted meals! One plus to this place is the updated weekday menu.. every few days of the week have a different menu..

The food tasted quite delicious; the restaurant had a nice European feel; the service, on the other hand, was terrible. The waiters were slow and unpleasant. A smile was a tough ask.

Had a lovely dinner here. The service was very good, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Seating was comfy and it was very clean. The food was really nice, the mushroom soup was very tasty as was the bread that came with it. The waiter took my order for a mixed salad, I liked the look of two salads so I... More
