My vision was to establish a unique brand that emphasizes the beauty of combining both contemporary and traditional taste and culture. I wanted to create a brand which has depth and meaning so the team thought long and hard about the concept. A Phoenix in Greek mythology was a bird that could live for a long time and could also be regenerated or reborn from the ashes of its predecessor, so the Phoenix’s strong association with fire and longevity are traits and facets which are also associated with the restaurant. A huge amount of effort has gone into creating this unique concept so we are very keen to ensure our standards are perfected and maintained.
We pride ourselves on providing a unique venue which offers quality food, excellent service and an exceptional experience. I hope you enjoy your Phoenix experience and we look forward to serving you.
Managing Partner | Phoenix Eatery and Shisha Lounge
We are one of the biggest restaurants in Bahrain with a dazzling seat and tantalizing views of the sea and riveting airplane spotting as they descend to the Bahrain International Airport’s runway.
Two floors of spaciousness, the graceful interiors embrace a calming double-decked water feature, with mesmerizing grand chandeliers and vibrantly colored pieces of furniture that both calm and excite. The restaurant also features 9 VIP rooms, each embellished with a distinguishes multi-cultural concept that includes serene Japanese, authentic Persian, Intimate Russian and rich Arabic elements. Adding to the charm, 8 of the 9 VIP rooms extend over breath-taking sea-view balconies.
Exit onto the spacious terrace with its elegantly rope-adorned posts, whilst you enjoy fresh fruity Shisha, or you can, on some occasions, sit back and watch major football matches displayed on big projector screens as you indulge in the sight of airplanes embracing the ground of Bahrain International Airport.
The restaurant’s crew of 35 experienced and attentive staff members are to guarantee the fulfillment of all your requests promptly and precisely, further complementing your dining experience.
The main attraction at Phoenix is the appetizing and perfectly crafted food. An intriguing fusion of classical and contemporary, local and international cuisines mastered by CHEF KAVINDRA RATNAWEERA of Bahrain’s earliest practicing food artists.
Upon visiting, you are strongly advised to savor Chef’s special Spicy Chicken Bites or the Traditional Mezza for starters, the flavorful tender grilled lamb chops with the Chef’s special marinade, and the wonderfully blended fresh orange and mango juice.
