I have to say that I have been amazingly surprised by The Cellar. Warm atmosphere, great hosts (thanks to Elsa and Lele) and the food... Yummy! From the starter to the dessert. Value for money? 10/10. I would highly recommend the Cellar.

A really good option for when you want a more relaxed, less leary brunch experience. Could do with a couple more hot food options and definitely need better segregation from the smokers. All in all very enjoyable, great food selection and friendly/attentive staff.

Unbelievably the unbeatable best dining place in Doha with a relaxing music while chilling my favorite spirits. Dion and GLen always make my night so special when I'm at Cellar, all other crews are very accommodating and cheerful! I will surely come back and recommend to my friends! The only place to be!

Staying at the Qryx Rotana, I often visit most of their restaurants and have not been disappointed so far. Each restaurant has its own unique ambiance and for the most part pretty lively and energetic.

This is, by far, my favorite Doha brunch experience. The atmosphere was very relaxed. It was welcoming, and I didn't feel like I was in the Middle East while I had brunch.
