We were here for lunch on a Thursday. There were staff all over the place from the entrance lobby onwards. Certainly some beautiful locations through the hotel in which to eat both inside and out. The four of us chose separate items off the extensive menu and all were of high quality in taste and presentation. The spectacular cocktails were... More

We had a lovey time at Trader Vic's, the band music was very vibrant. Great for friends and happy times. The food in general wasn't so great or special. I would recommend it for people who would like a nibble and drink, rather than a proper dinner meal. But still would want to come back again.

I have been to Trader Vic's numerous times in the past, whether it be for drinks in the bar area with friends or a meal in the restaurant with family. In the bar the service can be slow but I would definitely say that the cocktails and the ambiance of the bar area are the best in Bahrain - it's... More

Trader Vics is an Island themed cocktail lounge and restaurant located near the Ritz Charlton in Manama Bahrain. It's slightly out of the way from nearly anything else, but a taxi to and from City Centre mall was only 4BD. Every time I've gone to Trader Vics, the steak has been cooked perfectly. They get good cuts of meat as... More

Great place with good food. Price is reasonable considering location, atmosphere and quality of food. Weekends is also nice although maybe a but too many men looking for a god time around the bar.

It has great outdoor seating with waterfront view of lakes, occasional flamingos and fish ponds, as well as very well designed interior.
