It's the Wandering Yank again. Mrs. Yank had a milestone birthday this month, and a coworker suggested La Mer at the Ritz-Carlton for such a special occasion. A week ago I made a reservation online for last night and invited 2 of our best friends. I received the confirming e-mail. I double-checked the website a few hours beforehand to check... More

We went for a treat for our 9th wedding anniversary. Dinner was lovely, though the pianist may want to practice before performing next time. In a completely empty seating area the only other diners were right next to us. The Corbia wasn't available but they charged us the same price for the Hammour, presumably a cheaper local fish. The specialty... More

We chose La Mer for our Anniversary and Birthday celebration - we are so glad we did! As other reviewers have stated.. it is on the 23rd floor so the views are amazing and the pianist/violinist made the room feel really special . We opted for the 'blind tasting' menu with paired wines - stunning. We started off with an... More

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

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
