One of the best arabic breakfast I've taken in Bahrain and enjoying such lovely views at the fort terrace. Take a walk around the fort and discover it after enjoying food and the restaurant.

This place serves traditional Bahraini food. Each dish tastes so delicious. The location is also in a traditional place. Their tea is nice and also their rose milk is so good.

The restaurant was quite crowded but we didn’t wait much to get a table. The food was great as well as the juices.

This is in Riffa fort and the way there is easy but don't use google maps or you will go in circles on the narrow streets :) Great place to have traditional Bahraini breakfast with the ambiance of the fort around you. In winters, the...outdoor seating on the deck is an excellent experience with good views. The food itself is good and wholesome. Afterwards, you can stroll around the fort. They are constructing a new mini museum (the glass building in the center of the fort) which has paid entry which you are stroll around as well.More

I have been a few times and enjoyed dining in a place where mostly locals eat. The specialty breakfast comes on a lazy suzan board and has an assortment of flavoursome bowls. I can't remember their local names ...a chickeny chickpea dish, a spicy egg...dish, an interesting egg dish on sweet saffron flavoured noodles, local beans and lots of flatbread. Also a few side dishes...a sort of cheesy deep fried bread and another delicious falaffel in a tiny pide bread. The soukh itself is not as exciting as one might hope...npt exactly a shoppers paradise but the trip to saffron makes it worthwhile .More
