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.

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
