Christmas Day dinner was spoiled by a number of things. Primarily the food was well below what we have previously had. The vegetable side dish was definitely spoiled and had to be changed to an alternative. The replacement meal was undercooked. Having booked in advance for a non smoking area (you can still smoke indoors in Doha) we were placed... More

I love the Cellar. All these great reviews have it right. Service attentive yet not intrusive. Never came with a reservation. Just drop in. The cellar is nestled inside the Oryx Rotana Hotel so it's easy to locate. I love the Albondigas, Paella, Mushrooms, and Chicken Breast. The sangria is out of this world. Great atmosphere.

Staff is nice and strives to meet client satisfaction. Quality of food is excellent with wonderful Mediterranean tastes... It is probably one of the warmest places in Doha to hang around for few hours for a drink and some good food...
