Converted Bahraini house is a gem of a restaurant Discuss this article
Mezzaluna has always been highly regarded, but in recent months their Canadian chef has left and has been replaced by a Frenchman – perfect for any reputable restaurant. Despite what people may say against them, the French are the best when it comes to food, and this has clearly travelled a few thousand miles to the middle of Adliya.
Mezzaluna is a converted Bahraini house that has a touch of the medieval about it; towering pillars, tables with handcrafted legs, heavy metal cutlery with seahorse tail handles, handcrafted rafters, stone floors and deep red lighting and candles. It’s the stuff Robin Hood is made of. But where the famous outlaw was happy with a bit of bread and a turkey leg for dinner, you should try the crab bisque to satisfy your palate – the fishy aroma hits your nose as fast as the dish hits the table.
The rib-eye steak with homemade chips is a hearty follow-up, with the steak taking over the plate, but cooked perfectly and accompanied by a creamy, honey-mustard sauce. The lighting makes it tough to read the menu, but it’s unlikely that you’ll go wrong whatever your choice.By Time Out Bahrain staff
