“Beat trader vic's in the region ”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

This is by far the best trader vic's in the Gulf region. Food is good ambiance is fantastic. Great band in the bar section, friendly staff. Located in the best address in town, the Ritz Carlton hotel. Easy access. A must go to place for drinks and food. Will always visit.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Just visited yesterday for dinner and was overall happy with the experience.
We arrived late and were informed that the kitchen had just closed but we were still allowed to make our orders as soon as possible, that is something I truly respect since other places would just refuse to serve dinner after the kitchen is closed.
There were some minor glitches on the service, but I totally understand that it is a normal result if is being late.
The food was outstanding, drinks well crafted and dessert heavenly!

Very highly recommended.

“Must go-to places in Manama”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Friendly service, good decoration, killer drinks especially their "Japanese sex" and "tiki puka puka", but the music and the band could be enhanced. Definitely one of the best places to have a drink in Manama.

“A bit overrated these days”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Although this place is a must, when on a vist to Bahrain, in recent years it has gone down hill. I certainly would not recommend this place for food as it is very Basic, expensive & takes ages to arrive. If on the other hand, a nuclear strength Cocktail is what you fancy, this is certainly the place to come. Nice surroundings as it is part of the 5 star Ritz carlton complex.
