“A Satisfying Evening Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

Only really opening up 7pm every evening, Zoe's makes for a fancy night out in a dark, leathery restaurant with a European atmosphere. Zoe's main dishes and specialities are Italian, and I would definitely recommend the meat pizza to anyone eating at Zoe's, as well as the tagliatelle pasta with a cream sauce and chicken. An average-priced dinner for Bahrain, and a satisfying meal; all in all making Zoe's a favourable restaurant that I can now easily recommend to you.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

We were looking forward to enjoying a meal here, especially after seeing many positive reviews on TA, but we were sadly disappointed with the food.
Service was rather good, but then there were only four people dining at the time, meaning the restaurant was rather lacking in atmosphere for a Thursday night.
We ordered a salad which was correct, followed by a steak, requested rare but cooked to medium-rare, and a barbecue chicken pizza. The Steak was tender but lacking in taste and the pizza appeared to be a pre-cooked frozen base, covered in supermarket bbq sauce and lots of cubes of meat on top. The result was a very poor quality pizza. The wine was correct but pricey. All in all below average food at high prices and no atmosphere to speak of.

“good food, good price”

This was a middle of the week visit so the place was fairly quiet. Nontheless, the dishes we ate were very nice without being too overstated.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

A fancy New York restaurant style. The service is the best there is, it cannot be any better. The food is excellent, premium quality. The chief is an artist. It is definitely a great dining experience there.

“Cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Zoe is located in Adliya which has the largest concentration of good restaurants in Bahrain. These restaurants are all within 5 - 10 minutes walk from one another, in many instances they are located a few metres from one another.
Zoe has a principal spot right on the corner as you walk into the restaurant area. The layout is super chic inside with a seperate bar area for those who want just cocktails. The food is of high quality but it comes at a price. On balance it is well worth it and we will visit again. Weekends you need to book in advance.
