If you're visiting Bahrain you must visit Lilou. Its one of the oldest restaurants in the country. Also one of the best in my opinion. It has a great menue. Great choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I definitely recommend.

When we lived in Bahrain, we always to Cafe Lilou for brunch every Friday. Without fail! So now that we no longer live in the island, we miss Lilou and make sure that we eat there when we visit.
