Reviews, pictures and contact and booking details for the best afternoon teas in Bahrain, part of the Time Out Bahrain Restaurant Awards.
Tea, scones, maybe even a mini savoury selection, restaurants are going above and beyond with their afternoon teas year after year. That’s why Time Out has visited each and every restaurant on this list, putting them through their paces and assessing aspects including a comfortable and enjoyable setting, service and good value for money. We’ve gone undercover to find out what you’re getting at each venue.
As afternoon tea is an innately extravagant affair, it makes perfect sense to take it in at a fabulous five-star hotel such as the new Four Seasons Bahrain Bay. The setting is fabulous and dulcet piano music floats up from the level below, providing a soundtrack for people-watching across the large open lobby.
Cafe Amsterdam does its best not to miss a trick. It is therefore unsurprising that it has introduced an afternoon tea service. The venue itself possesses all the whimsy and charm one could hope for, while the stand-out feature of this offering is the ability to choose exactly what you want from a good selection.
Noor Lounge is an easy place to spend time in: it's a sunken lounge with a cosy feel from warm lighting and sumptuously upholstered seating, while a grand piano is beautifully played in the background.
Tea time offerings at the Gallery Lobby Lounge centre around the eponymous beverage, with a classic option, tea pairing experience, afternoon spa version, and a pink sparkling high tea for those looking for a little something extra.
At BD5 per person this is the most affordable afternoon tea service on our shortlist, and it is also one of the most convenient as it is served all day. When it comes to taste, it hits the spot and the proportions of sweet and savoury feel right.
All seating at this sophisticated café is lavishly upholstered and comfortable enough to sit in for hours as you watch shoppers in City Centre Bahrain drift by. The plentiful afternoon tea offers three tiers of sweet and savoury goodness.
