I have been to the Taprunch (tapas brunch) twice now and I enjoyed it even more the second time. The selection of items is not as overwhelming as some traditional brunches, so I felt that it was a unique experience. The food was a good balance of choices to make you feel satisfied.

Came here with friends for Friday brunch. I've not been to this hotel before and it doesn't look very attractive from the outside but inside it's lovely with beautiful floral displays. We've done a few brunches but this was different as there was a smaller selection of food, you helped yourself to alcoholic drinks and the restaurant was much smaller.... More

The chocolate mousse was fantastic- rich, delicious and decadent. The rest of the meal (watermelon salad and steak) was solid, but could have been more. I think the chef is coasting. Service was very efficient and friendly.

Having just moved to Doha and this being my first experience of eating out, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I was very impressed! Food was great and as it was Tapas the portions were very generous... I would say that any normal person would be satisfied with 2 dishes per person. Service was excellent, staff were efficient...
