When the scorching heat of the Arabian sun finally mellows out in the winter months (Oct–Apr), al fresco
fare in Block 338, Bahrain’s bohemian dining district, is de rigueur
. Liou’s is perfect for a ladies' luncheonette and art aficionados will go gaga at Al Riwaq’s café. La Ventana, with its homey ambiance and tasty sweets, is ideal for dessert. Do a late afternoon visit to nearby Al Fateh Mosque before enjoying tapas (try La Vinoteca Barcelona
), dinner, and a nightcap all in Block 338.
