Alex and I normally live in Ecuador, so I'm always a little nervous of any restaurant claiming to serve Latin American food. However, I had no need to be nervous. The service and the food were very good, and the opportunity to eat al fresco was very pleasant. The portions exceeded all expectations. The only fault, which cannot be blamed... More

I typically give an establishment the benefit of the doubt and understand that the kitchen could be experiencing issues, the staff could be overwhelmed, ...etc. As such, if disappointed initially, I try again in a month or two to determine the if the establishment has improved. Unfortunately, my initial visit was as poor as my second visit and I will... More

I visited pampano with my mother. We were the only table at this time, and it kind of scared me thinking their quality have dropped down. And yes, I was correct. The guacamole was made of un-ripped avocado. And the hammour had very fishy taste. Their coffee? The worse I've tried in my life! Cappuccino came with no form! Service... More

Visited here with my husband and my sister who was visiting. She is a seafood lover and the food did not disappoint. Both the starters and mains were delicious. A little pricy all the same but I suppose reasonably good value.

The service was bad, the food also, and expansive as well... I don't recommend it. The food had no taste, the waitress were not attentive at all. I went there when they've just opened and it was nice, but I've been there for dinner couple of times after and it was worst and worst.

The restaurant setting is nice with a nice viewon the Pearl Marina; however food is over priced and comes in small portions!!! Food presentaion is good but service and taste aren't up tp the standards.

Officially the worst restaurant in Doha. The meals that were served were about 45 minutes late- We had to ask the staff three times where our food was. Eventually after 45 minutes, they came but told us they forgot two people's orders. The manager was extremely unaplogetic and rude and the 15 of us that went there will never go... More

highly priced, little choice, not great service (considering we were the only ones in the restaurant!)…the only good thing about it is the view over the marina on The Pearl (which is always lovely!)

it was my first time when I enjoyed with one of my friend. He recommend it, specially the appetizers. a recommendation is to order only starters, as the main courses a bit of smaller portions.

Beautiful, but overpriced Mexican made better by the fantastic setting and service at the Pearl. Took visitors and they loved it.
