Fish Market – Bahrain…

Posted: September 29, 2011 in Food, Travel

Everytime i go to Bahrain i always hear how good their Fish Market restaurant is, they say its even better than the one in Kuwait… So, i gave it a chance and had lunch there… First of all Fish Market is located in Al-Bandar Resort, Sitrah… Honestly the food was nice but i wouldn’t say it’s the best, comparing it to the old one in Kuwait, Kuwait’s much nicer… Our order is as follows:
1- Crab with cheese sauce…
2- Oysters with tomato sauce…
3- Calamari…
4- Lobster with lemon sauce…
5- Prawns with lemon sauce…

1- Crabs with cheese sauce… I loved their crabs and the cheese mix was very nice with it… Even though you rarely taste the crab its all cheese, it was still delicious, loved it…

2- Oysters… They were nice and mixed with some kind of tomato sauce which came out great…

3- Calamari… It was OK had better in alot of other restaurants… My least favorite in the order…

4- Lobster with lemon sauce… The lobster was 50/50, half of it came delicious and melt in your mouth tender and the other half, the tail side, was very hard and chewy…

Maybe trying some dishes with different sauces might have been better but i still think that Kuwait’s Fish Market in the Old Salmiya is way better… Our bill came around BD 88, which is about the same in Kuwait…

Novotel Al-Dana Resort…

Posted: September 28, 2011 in Hotels, Travel
Usually when i go to Bahrain alone i stay at a cheap hotel, because in Bahrain i don’t really care where i sleep… This time i went with a good friend of mine and he wanted to stay in a better hotel, so we tried Novotel Al-Dana… The hotel has a great pool and a private beach for its residents… The pool was great but the beach we didn’t try but it looked nice…
 
The Pool…
 
The Private Beach…
 
As for the room it was spacious and chalet style, the floors were ceramic not carpet… We had a balcony with a table and two chairs, i think it wasn’t cleaned after the previous residents, cigarette ashes were all over the table… The room was pretty clean and so was the bathroom…

Room door and cupboards… The door was so tight we had to open both sides so our bags would fit through, even though that isn’t a big issue but it would be much nicer if they were wider…

It was a big balcony with a beach view, but wasn’t clean… The weather was also too humid to sit outside…
 
Novotel Al-Dana is a 4 star hotel… I didn’t like their service alot… When we checked in there was only one person at the counter and she wasn’t that welcoming… I really hated the way she talked to us, not a good receptionist for a hotel… To me the pool and beach made our stay worthwhile… Of course i almost forgot the location is on the bridge between Al-Muharraq and Al-Manama, which i think is a very awesome location everything is close by…
