Reviews, pictures, contact and booking details for the best Latin American restaurants in Bahrain, part of the Time Out Bahrain Restaurant Awards.
Hot tamale! Latin American cuisine has many of our much-loved foods from Tex-Mex to the pearls of Peru. Dreaming of a night of tacos, empanadas and churros all while being entertained by a Mariachi band? Or do you go crazy for a chunky guacamole? Time Out has visited each and every restaurant 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.
Seef Mall-based churrascaria Brasa de Brazil offers over a dozen varieties of meat as well as a gourmet salad bar perfect for vegetarians. The venue is brightly coloured and welcoming, and the staff are friendly, but the major draw here is its location.
This all-you-can-eat churrascaria-style restaurant is a haven for dedicated meat eaters. The wait-staff make sure your plate and glass are never empty, so plan on a post-dinner food coma. But head over to the lounge to dance off the calories.
Casa Mexicana has been on the restaurant scene for longer than we remember and has managed to maintain regulars thanks to high quality food and good service. Pop on your sombreros, as it's a place that's worth a visit even just for the food.
Gulf Hotel's Margarita Mexicana is the chicest of the destinations on this list, however the ambience and setting is unpretentious and warm. A live mariachi band adds to the mood, as do the knowledgable and friendly staff. The menu caters to all degrees of Mexican cuisine aficionados.
This popular Mexican restaurant still has a surprise or two under its signature sombrero. Although the mind boggles at a menu boasting well over fifty main courses, in addition to sharing platters, appetisers and desserts, once you choose, you'll find that dishes are satisfying and tasty.
