Yet to try any cake which I like better than Concerto from Lilou. I haven't ordered a birthday cake from anywhere else (other than Lilou's bakery which is behind the restaurant, near Ferrari Centre) since the first time I tried Lilou in 2007.

One of the best restaurants in Bahrain, where the food is impeccable and the prices are reasonable. You'll find a hard time finding a seat for dinner especially during weekends; however, if you are there for the food only ask the staff to seat you upstairs. There is no waiting time for the balcony or the 2nd floor.

Always a good choice whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The menu offers great choice, the service is excellent and prices are reasonable. Also the choice of cakes and pastries is always very tempting.
