Fortunately Bateel has a wonderful bakery with cakes, breads, pastries but a weak service. I cannot adress what exactly is wrong about Bateel but here is the thing, they cannot use the opportunity of having such a wonderful bakery. The food is really good but the poor atmosphere and the service(again) is taking the rate down. They keep the bakery and the cafe totally seperated even they are at the same place. Once we were served old dated breads which is the most dissappointing issue. We visited there twice and may visit again hoping there would be some improvements. However, it worths a try.
