I visited here twice just to confirm my feelings and make sure isn't wasn't a one off. The restaurant is cosy and has a great atmosphere will all kinds of people meeting there for food and drink. But both times the service was weak and our choices weren't available….

If you visiting Doha on business or for just family and friends, make sure you do visit 'The Cellar' at Oryx Rotana!! It's a dinner you will always remember for two simple reasons - outstanding food and warm friendly attendants who make you feel at home right away. I have had the pleasure of enjoying their dinner on several occasions... More

Package included alcohol- white or red sangria or wine or agua de valencia (cava, orange juice, vodka and gin cocktail) We were seated on a long table with high stools which were not particularly comfortable but regardless we had a good time.

We stayed there with some friends to have a lovely evening. The wine choice is very nice considering that it is all imported. We tried different ones which were all good and reasonably priced. Tapas are a bit expensive or overpriced but the ambiance is nice. Some of the staff need some training how to poor he wine properly. To... More

While the large wine selection is best suited for evening time, The Cellar works very well for lunch also. Not too conveniently located, but once there and valet parked, you can dissappear into The Cellar and be completely taken away from the city. There is an Express Lunch menu for QAR95 that is similar to other normally dinner establishments. One... More
