Ended up walking out, nobody came to serve me for 15 minutes after I was seated - ended up going to the Chinese instead.

Nice relaxed restaurant. Do have tapas, and nice wines. Normal Meals are also on the menu. We came with a group, and opted for the tapas. There was more than enough, and a nice variety. Drinks were also good, however I've been told: during Ramadan no alcohol is available

If you like a variety flavors without the stigma of a buffet, stop in a try the tapas at The Cellar. From the X'press lunch or dinner to Pintxos special with overflowing Sangria, the variety is plentiful for all occasions. I truly enjoy the chicken with pumpkin puree finished off with a nice chocolate fondant. Of course, it's always more... More

Great place to have dinner at Oryx Rotana Hotel in Doha. Wide selection of foods and apossibility to dine alfresco, if you can say so in Qatar, where is always hot. Evenings are pleasant, with a nice breeze from the sea after sunset. Waterpipes are available.
