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.

We came here for our anniversary. The food was excellent, especially the oysters, and the service was at just the right level of attentiveness without being intrusive. Lovely views across West Bay, and a pianist in the background - a great choice for a romantic evening. Particular thank you to Chef William Khala for his cuisine.

La Mer has been around for years in Doha. A few years back I would say it had the reputation as the city's finest dining.
