THE CONCEPT

A 16-course degustation experience designed by our Michelin-star chef to exhilarate the palate and expand culinary boundaries

Chef Herve Pronzato spent over a year designing a true gastronomic experience, carefully constructing a culinary journey with a symphonic range of taste, texture, scent, sound and presentation. Each course is unique and genius in its concept, technique and flavor combination, but altogether the degustation leaves you mesmerized and amazed at how we awakened all your senses in just one sitting.

Mahonia also offers a smaller 7-course tasting menu as well as an a la carte option for the more selective guests, both of which are based on the degustation menu.

The Experience

Like a choreographed ballet, perfectly sequenced, timed, paired, explained and presented.

With a team of 40 chefs every single dish is prepared as if it were a work of priceless art. Mahonia is not just a restaurant, it is a multisensory experience that will forever change how people see, taste and understand food. Using only the finest ingredients from around the world, Kobe beef from Japan to Quail eggs from France, Mahonia sources the best, rarest and most special ingredients for its dishes.

The Ambience

With a sensual style and lavish design, Mahonia aims to surprise and delight every guest with its creativity, sophistication and harmony.

Crafted with love and care, Mahonia is elegantly set with plush furniture, priceless works of art adorning the walls, handmade Murano glass sculptures and impeccable tableware, Mahonia is carefully designed to allow guests the chance to truly luxuriate in culinary decadence.

The Venue

Mahonia is on a mission to introduce true gastronomy to the Arabian Gulf and the Kingdom of Bahrain is the perfect setting, with its cosmopolitan society and diverse economy.

As an epicurean destination that boasts a wide variety of cuisines, Bahrain has become a primary culinary destination in the Middle East due to its open borders, highly-connected and multicultural society and vibrant atmosphere.

Nestled in the heart of Bahrain’s fashionable dining district Adliya, Mahonia ushers in a new era of fine dining with its gastronomic degustation menu concept.
