The crème de la crème of the Kingdom’s food and beverage (F&B) and hospitality sectors turned out as we gathered to celebrate the Fact Dining Awards Bahrain 2022. Now in its 13th edition, this year’s gala ceremony was held at the beautiful, brand-new Jumeirah Gulf of Bahrain Resort & Spa.
A great deal of hard work and planning went into the event and with the support of our generous partners:
The Gulf of Bahrain Resort & Spa, Porsche Centre Bahrain, Ahlan App, BMMI, Bidfood, Anorris Events, HSP Marketing, Floward, Terapy, Asgharali, Bath & Body Works and Vatel Bahrain – International Hospitality School
we handed over a host of awards to our excited and deserving winners, who represent the best of the best from across the island’s vibrant and eclectic dining dining scene.
Each year, two winners are chosen in each category – the Favourites, which are selected by a public on-line vote, and the Best, chosen by industry experts.
This year’s awards saw 531 nominations across 49 categories ranging from family-friendly and brunch to speciality offerings, regional cuisines and newcomers. And, on top of all these, came the awards for Overall Favourite Restaurant, which was won by Salero at The Westin City Centre Bahrain, and Overall Best Restaurant, which was won by CUT by Wolfgang Puck at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay.
A massive 68,700 people cast the individual votes, up significantly from last year’s 61,000, giving an indication of how involved our readers really are with the restaurants, cafés, bars and lounges that play such a large part in Bahrain’s lively social scene.
FACT Magazines publisher, Rami Khalil, said: “It was an honour to host so many of our long-term partners and friends alongside the cream of society for the kind of awards party FACT is so well known for. The number of votes cast is growing every year and we believe our island’s unique dining and hospitality scene is truly deserving of celebration.
“We at FACT are always incredibly grateful for the support of all our partners, members of the dining sector and, of course, our readers and voters – without them the awards could not happen – and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in any way.” ✤
