As a regular business guest at the Ritz Carlton I joined my colleagues for dinner for a painful experience. It's not the first time it's my 4th or 5th time and their service is diabolical and a disgrace and a let down to the impeccable service of the hotel. Service - too slow Customer service - very poor Food -... More

Just had dinner in Trader Vics, Bahrain. This was the third time I've eaten there and although the food is good, service is terrible. It took over an hour to get food and complaints were not treated seriously.We won't be back.

the place is very nice and the service is good, the wine list is excellent, but the food is subpar, and I remember 5 years ago it was excellent, new chef is needed maybe. Parking is a mess.

Come to Trader Vics for a night out , the cocktails are good , the place is busy and the band is Latino , Cuban I think . I like the vibe of Trader Vics , but don't go as often as I used to because it has become a bit tired. The band sings the same old songs ,... More

I have visited Trader's a few times while travelling to Bahrain and every time has been great. The starters are definitely worth going for, beef chow chow is my personal favorite. Staff are friendly. Only thing I would say is the service sometimes does take a little too long to be served. Overall worth the visit for lunch or dinner.

I have visited Trader Vics in Manama several times over the past 3 years. Nice place with pleasant ambience. However every time it has taken over 10 minutes from ordering to get a bottled beer on one occasion it took 30 minutes and 3 reminders... Simply not good enough for a restaurant charging the sort of prices it does. Wait... More
