It was as good as expected, this was my first visit to a Gordon Ramsay's restaurant (excepting the plane food rt. in Heathrow) and I will repeat for sure. Very nice atmosphere and excellent and original food. If you are thinking in coming, don't doubt about it! I guess that if you are considering... read more

This place is a reliable favourite when we have friends or family in town. The atmosphere is really relaxed, this is probably helped by the hotel having a fine dining Ramsey restaurant as well as Opal - Those who want to feel like a food critic and dress up for a ballroom should go there instead. This place is a... More

I had lunch at opal by golden Ramsey on a Saturday on a long weekend. Surprisingly the place was empty. The restaurant offers variable international dishes, with slight twists. The food tasted fresh and delicious. The restaurant is overlooking the bay and the pool, and the choice of background music was good, so ambiance was good. Service was not the... More

We had lunch here and the food was really nice, and reasonably priced. Great cocktails and good wine selection. Deserts were also great.

Everyday we celebrate life but not our birthdays. This restaurant made me feel like heaven during my birthday last June 5th. The food was great, we were seated on a nice area were we can have a great view of the sea and staffs are very accommodating. It is the style of buffet that you'll surely love because you'll be...

Ramadan lunch in Opal was a very good deal indeed, as compared to lunch prices in Doha overall. Atmosphere is nice and service is friendly, food is tasty, though I have to admit it didn't blow my mind. But there was couple of details which made me bit surprised: when my friend asked to swap her side dish to a... More

This was a terrible first experience! I can't believe all the hype about Gordon Ramsay restaurants. The food completely tasteless and bland. I had the fish special for lunch today. It was supposed to have made with a meunière sauce but instead the chef melted a pound of butter and layed the bland fish in it. I had fried calamari... More

Firstly I do commend a nice restaurant being open for lunch during Ramadan, after all most of the population isn't fasting, and given hotels mainly cater for expats I'd say the majority of their customers aren't fasting either. So bravo and on this Saturday the lunch room was full of expat families enjoying a lunch (no one was smoking, excellent).... More

This should be on the next episode of that show where Gordon Ramsay himself goes to horrible restaurants to sort them out. If he spent less time on TV and more on his restaurants or restaurants he leases his name to then the food would probably be better.

Had lunch with my family on Friday turns out they had a set menu which seemed ok, we were seated on a nice table with a view of the sea, options on the Ramadan Lunch menu were limited to a cold tomato soup, grilled squid with a green spicy sauce, and a artichoke salad. The squid and the salad were... More
