Afternoon Tea

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.

We had dinner at the restaurant to celebrate my birthday. We were late, I already informed. They were helpful to accommodate us. Table setup was nice. We had to move the table, my husband couldn't enjoy the view! ! We were the only guest at the restaurant. There was a huge table setup arranged I guess for following day lunch.... More

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. New hotels and many new restaurants have opened in the last few years and La Mer is now one of many high-end venues and probably needs to remind people how good it is. At the... More

From start to finish the dining experience was superb. Starting with the warm welcome and then the lovely table setting with rose petals which was a nice touch to the stunning view. For appetisers we had the scallops and foie gras both perfect for taste and freshness. Main course we went for the sea bass and duck, again both dishes... More

Reservations for this establishment are highly recommended; otherwise you are considered a walk-in and you will be seated at the bar for dining service. I choose to make reservations. The dining experience was awesome--a great escape from the busy hustle of Doha. In true Ritz Carlton dining tradition, the atmosphere is formal, traditional, subdues, and such a welcome relief to...

This has to be one of the best view in Doha. Because the Ritz is out of city center, you are able to see all of downtown as you dine. Great food as well.

Great food, excellent service and an amazing view. It was the best and most romantic fine dining experience me and my husband had in Doha. I expected the price to be exorbitantly high but it was reasonable for the ambience, food and service that you get.

From entering the hotel there is a wonderful sense of things being simply better. The cocktail while studying the menu set the tone and on entering the restaurant the jazz trio seemed to be playing our song. The staff are excellent, attentive and knowledgeable. The food to die for and the grape divine. A truly faultless experience .
