Good for the view, nothing else: Restaurant Alto @ Rotana Downtown (7. March 2018)

| August 3, 2018 | 0 Comments

Colleagues of mine have mentioned Alto for its view – and frankly, that is all there is. The food is really not worth mentioning as it is frankly not outstanding at all. I went for the “chickpea hummus with crispy bread” (2.900 BHD) and “fried calamari, served with pickled chili mayonnaise” (4.800 BHD). The chickpea hummus is rather dense and the fried calamari was truly just crunchy with not much taste and even the sauce was disappointing.

I was absolutely looking forward to the ‘chicken liver’, but the “Moroccan spiced, pan-fried chicken liver, served with bread” (4.900 BHD) was truly not enjoyable. The taste was just somewhat repulsive and so was the texture. When I basically gave it back almost full, the waitress was very attentive and friendly and took it off the bill. However, all in all, it is not a place I would recommend for lunch.

When it comes to the view, then it is a place you might want to consider as the view over Manama is actually quite nice.

So, all in all, the place is nice in terms of view over the city but that is really it! Else, I wouldn’t recommend you to try it.

I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems!
