“Best dining in Bahrain in my opinion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I have never heard of dining in Bahrain that got universal acclaim. I lived in Bahrain three years (just moved) and any place you mentioned - Bushido, Monsoon, Gusto and even Mezzaluna - seem to get only lovers or haters. Count me as a lover of Mezzaluna. My wife would agree. She usually eats fish in fine dining restaurants and liked the sea breem. I will eat most anything. I have tried several dishes here and can't remember not loving my meal. I would describe the menu as modern/continental/french. The interior is nice. Service is some of the best in Bahrain. You'll often meet the chef. The amuse bouche they give you is a great way to start a great culinary experience. My only fault is the deserts. Not as menorable as the main course.

“Great atmosphere, fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Check with them for special events. They usually have a look a like singer performing live at the restaurant. The ambiant is of a typical old arabic houses with a modern twist. Food is good if you like european dishes. They serve alcohol too.

“The service was good...the food forgettable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I ate here recently with my wife and while the service was very good (they were a bit TOO attentive, but that's MUCH better than the alternative), the food was okay. The decor is a wide-open space with A LOT of tables thrown together - it seems they're really trying to maximize the use of that space without offering the guests a little "breathing room."

“Empty and Forgotten”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This restaurant is usually empty the food is average, but no one wants to go to an empty restaurant and eat alone.

If you are looking to go on a date with out anyone knowing... go there no one will see you!

“Excellent fine cuisine !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Top fine cuisine performed by a proper french chef... perfect dishes, from starter to dessert, associating modern and authentic cuisine. Try the Slow cooked meat, the boullabaise, .... Excellent service, location, charming dining room and last but not least prices are reasonable. If lucky, the Chef would come and explain the dishes ... I've been going to this restaurant for few years and have never been disappointed = same chef, same crew for few years now ! For this kind of cuisine / ambiance, unique in Bahraïn !!!
