Pastel Chocolatier & Tea Room

If there’s ever a place that epitomises the decadent luxury of many of Bahrain’s restaurants, it’s Pastel

Time Out Says

If there’s ever a place that epitomises the decadent luxury of many of Bahrain’s restaurants, it’s Pastel. With a name like that you might hope for muted tones and subtle touches, but you would be wrong. Instead, this place goes big with gilt-edged, faux-snakeskin chairs, white leather sofas and massive glittering chandeliers in what is a fairly small eatery. Unfortunately, the service is slow and not as friendly as you’d expect when you’re paying good money for an enjoyable dining experience. Thankfully, the food fares a little better – eggs are light and in plentiful supply, foul is flavourful and the coffee is pleasingly strong. The range of bread is disappointing but generally speaking the quality of the food is good enough to justify the price. Some options like the Bahraini breakfast are only available as sharing platters – solo diners beware – but if you have the friends (or the appetite) you’ll find a sumptuous selection of local dishes at this eatery.
