If you’re looking for that ‘somewhere special’ but don’t want to lose sight of the country you are in, then you can’t do better than the atmospheric and sophisticated Mezzaluna. Occupying a stylish Bahraini courtyard house in a small backstreet, the high-ceilinged restaurant is undoubtedly one of the best in Manama. It offers an international menu with an excellent wine list. Book to avoid disappointment. Signs show the way from neighbouring main roads.
