“Attention to you and the food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

A return visit by two couples who enjoyed the food and service last November. This visit was even better. Last time I tried the degustation menu with wines. This time, I had a vegetarian starter of sautéed greens; done to perfection. Followed by duck breast done medium rare with dark cherry sauce; so tender and cooked to perfection. My companions were equally impressed across the menu - scallops with fennel starter, fillet of beef (x2), mushroom risotto. Desserts were well presented.
While we were all very pleased with the food, the service was top-notch. Surprise roses for the ladies at the end of the meal, always at hand but not hovering, helpful advice on the menu and wines.
And the view from the 23rd floor accessed via dedicated, express elevator adds immensely to the sophisticated but friendly atmosphere. The lights of Doha now twinkle brighter and with more colour than even 7 months ago.
Would we go back?
Sadly, this will be our last visit as we are repatriating to Australia in July but our friends surely will.

“Fantastic view, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

The location, the view, the setting are wonderful. The food is interesting, but no real wow factor. I had the tastign menu and there were some very interesting choices, but nothing was calling to me to come back again. Often, the flavours overpowered the main ingredients - the menu just did not hang together. Not worth it at the rpice, but we had a great evening and the staff were excellent.

“The food, The view - fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

From when you arrive until you leave i felt like ryalty, eating like a king and being treated just so. It was a quiet evening with my two guests and no one in the restaurant, however the service was impeccable, the food outstanding and the view amazing. I was so impressed i brought my partner back on Valentines Evening and had exactly the same amazing experience. Well done to the chef, the dishes were top class.
