Great food and very efficient service. Loved the style of the furnishing. The best thing was Concerto, cake deserving the name: a concert of dark chocolate.

We have gone to this place several times and found it consistently of good quality in portions size, presentation and of course, taste. The décor puts together some French elements with "belle époque" reminiscence. Usually full, but service personnel makes a god effort to keep up with patrons. At least there are two locations in Manama: one in Al-Ali Mall... More

I visited Bahrain 3 days ago and my 1st dtop was at Cafe Lilou. Cafe Lilou is not a place where you can have a lovely delecious meal, It is a place where Decoration, simplicity and complex factors infuse which each other to make Cafe Lilou one of its kind in Bahrain. Staff are very very friendly. Ambiance is so... More

Wonderful choice of cakes. Breakfasts are nice. Could have more choice. I had a turkey sandwich the meat was dark and chewy. I sent it back. I habe had to send food back on several occasions. Staff can be off hand prefering to suck up to the richer clientèle. Especially the previous European manager she was always rude and off... More

Lilou does not serve the best food. What it does and does very well is consistent food. Staff are not the best. It is a fun place to meet but not a place to go if you want to enjoy personal conversations with friends as the seating arrangements are poor to say the least. The price of their food has... More
