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

I usually go there once in a while and this place has been properly set up for success. Its cozy lighting in the evenings, the sound of the crowd socialising and having fun while the atmosphere, all of this blending in the atmosphere along with the fantastic food aroma from the open kitchen and the bouquet left in the air...

The Cellar is a great place to meet with friends after work and enjoy the extensive and inspired choice of wines until late in the evening. The food is simple yet very tasty and a good combination with the various drinks on the menu. The sangria is popular too. Service in Doha can be hit and miss, but The Cellar... More

It was always a good choice, but since a couple of months ago it improve. The brunch is good. The sangria is a really sangria, and the pinchos y tapas are good. Special mention the gazpacho, small but good. And the daily menu it's one of the best in the city.

Been coming here for almost three years now and it's got continuously better, especially over the last few months! They've got probably the best sangria in Doha and a fairly priced, tasty menu! The staff are friendly and very helpful! Definitely one of my favourite haunts in doha.
