We have lived here for ten years. Had some good meals at places. Some very good. Nothing as good as what we have experienced at Masso. Just had two amazing meals in the last month at Masso. Best fish dish ever for me. Do not understand bad review except maybe a private agenda. Or just a bad night which we... More

On Thursday 14th we (myself and my wife) booked a table at Masso accompanied by another couple of friends. We arrived on time but the table wasn't ready; the lady at the front desk invited us to have a drink at the bar while waiting and so we did. We ordered 2 Prosecco, I paid and exchange was given to...

Ate here for brunch over the weekend, its a lovely venue and one of my fave places on the island. I prefer it to anywhere else I have been for brunch as you order from lots of smaller dishes which are served to your table rather than the buffet concept, which I hate. The food is lovely, I have never... More

Great decor, great service and great food. The executive Chef is never too busy for her customers, something you rarely see in fine dining establishments these days. Can't recommend enough, if you've come to Bahrain on a trip and your have not been to Masso you have missed out.

This place has the greatest food ever, juicy, tasty, amazing and just done to the perfection. It has a very nice seating area and somehow classy and even romantic. You may take your loved ones or your great friends and believe me you wont ever regret it. Note: their portions are big so do not over order, also its considered... More

This is one of the best bars and best restaurants in Bahrain. The bar is cozy and has a real European feel. The wine list is extensive and original (but expensive). The restaurant serves lovely Italian food and the Italian Exeutive Chef Suzy will usually be around to say hi. Brunch on the terrace (when the weather permits) is lovely... More

Delicious starter. Super pasta. Nice atmosphere and service. Didnt like the white fish so they changed it. The salmon was very unique but just ok. Surprisingly the white fish was still on the bill and i had to tell the waiter to remove it. Not sure whether it was deliberate or by mistake. Either way you expect a place of... More

We had a great lunch at Masso. The 'tapas' style of ordering lots of small portions of excellent food off the inclusive menu gets a little getting used to but once mastered means a great fun lunch is had. We will be back.

We had the brunch at Masso for a farewell to some great friends. There were six adults and five well behaved, supervised children betweeen the ages of six and eleven. We cannot recommend Masso highly enough. Emma, the maitre d was warm, friendly, accommodating and so efficient. She had placed us all thoughtfully; the children in the private room to... More
