I also love their breakfast menu that satisfies every pallet. The only drawback is that it's crowded most of the time.

Been there a couple of times now. Cafe Lilou had become a must go place on my visit to Bahrain. Breakfast is nice while sitting outside whether you go to Adliya or Seef. Staff is very friendly.

Cafe Lilou is nice cafe with nice location in Alaali Mall. There are many choices of sweets to chose from and they look delicious. The cafe is usually crowded and waiting is required during dinner time. The staff are nice and welcoming. The Lilou Scesar salad is nice and well presented.

Went here for my birthday! The food was delicious. A little more expensive than we were expecting, but not bad, although specialty drinks were pretty pricey. The inside is adorable, with cute chandeliers, cushy chairs, and a little balcony up top where you can sit. Also has a patio, but as it was pretty hot no one was sitting out... More

Very nice setting and original menu options. Food is not bad (though clearly overrated). Unfortunately service is without enthusiasm.

This is in my opinion the best Cafe in Bahrain. The food is extremely delicious especially deserts which I strongly recommend it. The food minu has a beautiful mixed between French European and Middle Eastern Arabic dishes. The atmosphere is fantastic and classy however the service is usually very slow especially if they are busy. They have two locations in... More

We went there while visiting Bahrain and absolutely loved it.. Very chic with a calm atmosphere.. You set indoor yet can see the outside and enjoy your very delicious chocolate "boule"! ! Definitely going again!
