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. We preferred a little bit more lighting. We had a good time... More

We had all three courses. -Cheese was great. Good flavor, good quantity, great options of bread, potatoes, and artichokes. Would love to see them add apples to the service. -Main was great. From...

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.
