La Med at the Ritz Carlton offers one of the most luxurious Arabic, Mediterranean and seafood brunches we've come across in a long time! There's a genuine Mediterranean feel to this place, and it's not just down to their fantastic ambiance, blue-white color scheme and ample natural sunlight. Steamed lobster, shrimps, muscles and some very fresh oysters are just some of the items that caught our eye, and it's going to take us multiple visits to work our way through all they have to offer! The outdoor terrace is one of the best spots in Bahrain to dig in and enjoy the panorama. The La Med buffet is available on Fridays from 12noon till 4.30pm and is priced at BD35++ per person (food and selected house beverages).
If you love to gorge on some juicy grilled prawns, a perfectly marinated fillet of nobu-style black cod, or a deliciously spiced bit of hamour, then this brunch at Le Meridien Bahrain City Center is for you! Baharat has made a name for itself as being the place to go on the island for anyone serious about seafood, but their brunch also includes a tempting spread of other cuisine types too. Pile up your plate with their tempting fare and let's get the weekend off to a culinary spectacular start! What's more is you'll be able to enjoy the fiery sounds of the Colombian duo Fire Soul. Baharat's brunch takes place every Friday from 13.30pm to 4pm and is priced at BD18++ (food and soft drinks) and BD26++ (food and selected house beverages).
Masso by Susy Massetti
Brunch at Masso isn't your usual experience, and we mean that in a very good way. With a focus clearly on making sure their contemporary Mediterranean cuisine tastes exactly as it should, the food is ordered a la carte and served straight to your table rather than buffet-style. Chef Susy Massetti's magical culinary touch is obvious throughout the menu, and it's easy to see why this place has won Time Out's Best Restaurant in Bahrain multiple times. If you haven't done the Masso experience yet, then we can highly recommend you tick that box with their brunch to get a taste of a bit of everything on their seasonal menu. A refined yet unpretentious atmosphere combines with attentive staff and sublime food. The Masso brunch is available on both Fridays and Saturdays, from 12 noon till 4pm.
