3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Food was average, but Drinks were delicious! Nice ambience with the 'Trio' band and very friendly Service.

“Best Mexican food in Bahrain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We go for the food because it's the best Mexican (and Tex Mex) we've found in Bahrain. The atmosphere, while attractive, could be improved with more patrons; it's a little quiet. But order the Queso Fundido with mushrooms (it's not on the menu; just ask for it) and you'll think you'll forget about any inadequacies. Yum!

“Gourmet Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you are just looking for a traditional Mexican menu, this may not be the place for you, but we loved the gourmet Mexican cuisine. The price is high, but the food and the presentation were not disappointing. The atmosphere was relaxing with live music.

“Just go for Drinks! Skip meals here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you want inexpertly prepared small portions of pseudo Mexican food, just head out to Margarita Mexicana's! Don't let me stop you. Opened with much fanfare, this Gulf Hotel outlet produces Mexican fare even worse than the lame stuff churned out by Casa Mexicana and Senor Pacos.

“Mexican food @ the Gulf Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

In general the food at the Gulf Hotel has been very good.
The Mexican restaurant specifically, I found average and over-priced on some items.
I've had better Mexican food in Bahrain so not sure I'd go back to this one.
Ambience is not bad and currently they have a duo singing in the evening.
