While I can't speak for the other reviewers here, I can however unequicollay say two things. I've eaten in a 3 star Michelin restaurant and my best friend is a chef in a fine dinning restaurant in Canada and he would have been appalled at the level of service and food served here on my visit!

Abysmal! WTF!

The only redeeming quality was that it was a nice place. The music was innapropriate while the bathroom was clean.

The white wine was ice cold, but I didn't have the heart to tell the server to take it out of the ice after 30mins. Poor Anakena Sauv Blanc.

Give me low cost, but great food anytime. Please!

Entrees but no side dishes! Not even an option given!

From the get go, we ordered two entrees, were served some bread with tomatoes/olives on the side and no sooner was that placed on our table, did the entrees arrive.

Common sense is what is lacking here. The servers, while hard working, aren't properly trained. Heck, I was in Cuba last week the service I rec'd there was far and away superior and the cost were lower!

I've never been anywhere! and ordered an entree and it arrives with no side dish! Absolutely unacceptable, esp at this price. Exhorbitant cost. Note to staff/manager, if your charging me $20 for a tiny piece of slamon, at least have the decency of offering me rice on the side for 50 cents and not 25 riyahls! Staggeringly obscene gesture!

Don't get me started!

My friend ordered the cheese cake....we didn't finish it!

All told with a bottle of wine $100 US!

I wouldn't recommend this place to an enemy! My buddy and I will be talking about how not to serve a $100 meal. Not a reference by any means!

BRUTAL!

If this is fine cuisine in Doha, I'm staying and cooking at home.

Great Atmosphere! Great Wine! Great Food! Great Company!

Everything was obviously just 'GREAT!'. This non-conventional tapas restaurant really ticked all the boxes. I recommend the mini Angus beef burgers, crispy shrimps and roasted vegetables, but the whole menu is great and even though there is quite a few items to choose from the quality is fantastic.

All washed down with a nice bottle (or 2) of Chablis just makes for a perfect meal.

After Cellar head to Jazz Club just across the lobby for a night cap and listen to the fantastic band with a great mix of pop and jazz tunes.

Definitely recommended to others but need to change the music. Change the music to suit the place. The service is very good. Shiniel is a great server and the food is excellent.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your review!

We are happy to hear that your experience with us was positive. Especially the service that Shoniel provided to you was mentioned, which is always nice to when our colleague get acknowledged. With regard to the music, were looking for a type of music that will definitely fit the ambience of The Cellar.

We hope to see you soon again.

Sincerely yours,
