Reviews, pictures and contact and booking details for the best bars for food in Bahrain, part of the Time Out Bahrain Restaurant Awards.
Want a snack with that beverage? Forget drinks, some bars are worth going to for the food alone. No time for boring bites, delectable small dishes are absolutely necessary for these places to excel. Time Out has visited each and every outlet to put them through their paces, assessing factors including quality of food, ambience and service. Popular or relatively unknown, we’ve gone undercover to find out what you’re getting for your money at each venue.
On the 50th floor of the Four Seasons Bahrain Bay, the Blue Moon Lounge more than lives up to its stunning location. The menu is as unique as you would expect from a Wolfgang Puck joint and the enthusiastic staff are charming.
A casual but buzzy restaurant in central Manama, Downtown is a subterranean lounge with modern and stylish décor. The friendly staff couldn't be more helpful when guiding you through their sleek bar menu.
It doesn't matter whether you're in Moldova, Mongolia or Manama there's always an Irish Bar, and in Bahrain everyone knows JJ's. The sizeable menu is aimed at Western palates: fish and chips and pies are all present and correct, and the portions are truly gargantuan.
Although technically in the bar food category, Tapas effortlessly transcends such labels to provide a dining experience of real quality. A world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this secluded hideaway boasts a stunning seafront location and relaxed vibe.
With exquisite surroundings and an exceptionally cool vibe you could forgive Thai at The Ritz-Carlton for resting on its beach-side laurels. Nothing could be further from the truth: the service is excellent and the selection of appetisers, classic Thai mains and sushi is tasty.
To step into Warbler is to enter a bizzaro-world English pub, cherry-red phone booths and all. Find old favourites on the menu to whet your appetite. Deep-filled, hearty pies will satisfy any longings for dear old Blighty.
One of the most popular haunts on the island, ‘Traders' has been catering to a mixed crowd with its diverse food and beverage menu for decades. Most recently, the menu and the kitchen has undergone an upgrade.
