We recently tried the Blind Tasting menu at La Mer. Miss Q&M and I happily arrived for dinner with eager appetites and high expectations. As the restaurant is situated on the 23rd floor of the Ritz Carlton, the panoramic views of the Doha coast and skyline boasts a romantic atmosphere. Lulled by contemporary ballads played live on piano, its hard... More

An excellent food experience - again! Have been here several times over the last 7 years, and though the food mostly have been very good, it have also varied a bit according to the chef at the time. But this time it was really very good. And a very nice chef that really took the effort to customize the dishes... More

Im not to sure I really want to share this info as its a true diamond of a place. We only went for brunch, but the hotel looks fab.

I have now attended three wine club evenings. They are extremely expensive - QR700 per head. However, it's worth every penny. You'll experience wines and food you cannot believe. During the evening the Sommelier describes each wine, what it is similar to, why he selected this particular wine, which foods it is best drunk with (oops - poor grammar), etc.,... More

During our first visit we were unsure which items to select from the menu. After a visit to our table by the Head Chef, we left the menu item selections in his hands. Each course was truly excellent with our favorite being the Short Rib which was truly "Fall off the bone" tender. We also gave the Sommelier full choice... More

We came last week for dinner, fully expecting fine dining the usual French style. Let's say, we were very pleasantly surprised. Not only by the "surprise" menu ( we had the blind tasting 5 course menu), but also by the innovative quality cooking.

The Afternoon Tea here is lovely! The little rolls are unique and delicious and I really enjoyed the scones. The view is fantastic and the timing means you get to see the city as the sun sets. I would especially recommend for a birthday celebration as the wonderful staff are very attentive.
