Great Tapas. Great Service. Nice Atmosphere!

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... read more

The Cellar is a place where you may meet with your friends in any hour, lunch or dinner, or late after noon. The atmosphere is warm and the service is good. You may have happy hours there. Food quality is sometimes a question mark. There are no square meal options in the menu. Whatever is available in the menu, the... More

I invited two guests to dinner last night to Cellar with the confidence that they will be pleased very much. I was correct, my guests tried here the first time and were amazed with dilicious tapas and good wine. We were unable to finish the food because of the generous amounts served. Wished we were more hungry. The ambiance of... More

To paraphrase the Brut-wearing sadists - sorry, teachers - at my old high school in the Dark Ages (Birmingham): "The Cellar, I'm so disappointed in you."

One of the best steaks I've ever had ( recommend the tenderloin). Elsa and Jennylyn were both very friendly and helpful. We were staying in the hotel for 2 nights, after dining here on night 1 we came back for more on night 2.- why look elsewhere when you are happy? Will definitely be back whenever we are in Doha.

Helpful staff/hostess helped to select the food ! good steak and burger ! and great appetizers ! Waiters need more training/have to be more professional.. simple stuff like removing the used plates before serving the next.. This is basic and not acceptable from this class of a place.
