Despite its wild moniker, Le Sauvage at The Domain hotel is actually a very refined spot. Perched high above the skyscrapers of Manama, artfully furnished with a nighthawk, downtown air, this is the sort of place where even the bread gets its own introduction and you get three types of salt. It has an innate awareness of the value of show and atmosphere. The menu is very refined, also. The grandiosely titled “Catherine De Medici” Green Ravioli shares the bloodlust of its namesake with no fewer than four different meats sealed within; the wagyu burger secretes seared fois gras beneath its brioche bun, while the selection of spicy beef sausages is wonderfully diverse. The steak itself is well-cooked and hefty. It’s a muscular cut that skirts on the edge of fattiness. Nevertheless, the flavours are superb, offset with an opulent Café de Paris sauce. It’s a balancing act which sums up Le Sauvage perfectly – the feral offset by the urbane. Best of all, this is one of the most reasonably priced, top- quality spots on this list.
