Reviews, pictures, contact and booking details for the best Business Lunch in Bahrain, part of the Time Out Bahrain Restaurant Awards.
Working lunches don’t always mean a boring sarnie or salad is on the menu. Spend the afternoon at one of these restaurants that offer a fantastic deal and serve up quickly. Time Out has visited each and every place listed to put them through their paces, assessing factors including quality of food, ambience and service. Popular or relatively unknown, we’ve gone undercover so you can find out what you’re getting for your money at each venue.
You know a business lunch is good when it’s nabbed our Best Business Lunch award every single year. It’s just pretty hard to beat in terms of setting, quality, variety and value for money. While it’s primarily Japanese in its food offering, there are other more international flavours for fussier diners.
Where better to discuss business than in one of Bahrain’s most iconic office spaces? Bice, an upscale Italian in the Bahrain World Trade Centre, offers a sophisticated setting, lovely views and a great three-course set menu that will impress the most discerning clients.
This might be the most expensive business lunch in town, but the top quality from this high-end steakhouse is unmistakable. Enjoy three courses of well-portioned Wolfgang Puck signatures dishes, which includes two types of steak and a delicious steak tartare. To impress a tough client, this is a very good choice.
Vegetarians need not apply at this business lunch offering, but meat and Persian cuisine lovers will be in their element with Golestan’s set menu. The options change all the time to keep it fresh, and you can enjoy it while relaxing in a traditional, opulent setting.
Looking to seal the deal? Then why not do it over a round of golf, followed by a great-value business lunch at the Royal Golf Club’s Links. Get two courses and a drink, all for a mere BD8, and choose from the regularly changing menu of international favourites.
For something really special and lavish, take someone to Nirvana, where they will dine like the Indian Maharajas. This opulent, richly decorated restaurant provides a relaxed and intimate atmosphere, and on offer every lunchtime is an extravagant thali, with a selection of moreish, authentic Indian dishes.
The winner of last year’s Best Indian accolade, Rasoi by Vineet has an excellent tiffin lunch on weekdays. The traditional presentation adds to the appeal, but the food, while authentic, is elevated to new levels of fine dining, thanks to the chefs’ skills and top quality ingredients.
Forget fancy set menus and lavish settings, Swiss-Café is a lovely, casual lunch spot, and here variety abounds. The buffet offers a selection of fresh salads and mezzes, daily changing hot dishes and prettily presented desserts. Plus, the bright, vibrant venue boasts great views over Seef.
