With a recent revamp that now boasts the most warm and elegant surroundings, the Friday Brunch at Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain is elevating the already award-winning experience for guests. This month we were invited for an afternoon of what can only be described as pure indulgence; FACT tucks in…
It’s no secret that the Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain is well ahead in the food game. As one of the most iconic dining destinations on the island, here is where you’ll find merry crowds of family and friends gathering to celebrate their love of good food, entertainment and, of course, great service. After a long hard week at work, there’s no better place to take a seat and ring in the weekend!
Be sure to skip breakfast and save yourself for the Mövenpick’s extensive variety of food (one of the largest offerings in Bahrain) spread across The Gallery Lobby Lounge and Silk’s Restaurant – both of which have had an extensive makeover during the hotel’s stunning renovations. Walking into Silk’s Restaurant is like walking into a European manor house in the countryside – it’s laid-back, sophisticated and absolutely stunning.
There is an entire forest wall which adds a woodlands vibe to the eatery, which stretches into a bright conservatory with cosy seating. It feels intimate yet inviting. The Gallery Lobby Lounge is accentuated by beautifully-placed indoor plants and an aviary-inspired lounge, there is a real greenhouse feel where the sun shining in through the tall glass windows gives the illusion of being under the open skies. Already, the whole set up feels more open and fresher.
Lo’ and behold, the food is a mighty spread of varied delicacies that we can’t wait to indulge in. Word of advice: skip breakfast if you’re coming for brunch here. Bringing some of the finest global gastronomic delights right to your table, the mouth-watering multiple buffets and live cooking stations will set your taste buds on a tantalising journey.
Choose from International salads and starters, oysters, lobster, shrimps and much more as well as Japanese sushi, tempura and dim sum. Fish and meat are prominent here, ready to be cooked up exactly how you like them with a side of crunchy vegetables.
The authentic Italian pasta station is a must visit and meatlovers will drool over the carving station featuring succulent lamb, beef and more. If you have a sweet tooth, make sure to save room for delicious desserts, cakes and fresh fruit or swing by the chocolate fountain, crepe station and Mövenpick’s speciality ice cream bar – they’re all as yummy as they sound! For those that prefer to end their feasting with a savoury option, the cheese room is the place for you, with an exclusive selection of the world’s best cheeses, (over 22 kinds) paired with nuts, fruit, jams and chutneys.
Don’t forget to wash your delectable choices all down with soft drinks, sparkling, red and white fruits of the vine, hop beverages and their famous Mojito and Irish coffee bars.
Savour and relish this extensive range of plated specialties cooked to perfection by expert chefs, and whilst you feast, enjoy the best music performances by the resident band and DJ – you’ll find it hard to stay in your seat! Kids have their very own private section where they can be kept busy with face and henna painting, as well as the magician and balloon artist. Mövenpick’s Friday Brunch is hearty in more ways than one; not only is the food top-notch but the whole vibe of the place is exhilarating – casual yet upscale, classy yet unpretentious – and everyone is welcome! ✤
