Restaurants in Bahrain

Visitors can feast on a variety of Middle Eastern specialities across the island, from cheap Lebanese mezze at Veranda in Adliya to hearty Iraqi dishes at Melh Al Zaad in Manama or fragrant Persian at Seef Mall's Yas-e Isfahani. Alcohol isn't available in malls and many restaurants since only premium hotels and designated districts are licensed to serve it. These include Adliya, which is packed with sophisticated venues like Mezzaluna, set in an old Bahraini house.
