“Okay but not at all authentic tapas”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Cellar purports to be a tapas restaurant. Chop Suey purports to be Chinese, which it isn't (it's American). Anyhow. I had a perfectly pleasant meal, with nice food (the best of which was smoked salmon carpaccio, which I defy anyone to find on a Spanish tapas menu).

I was pleased to get a nice chilled glass of fino sherry, which is a must, a delicious glass of Spanish rose wine and to cap it off a very good desert of Churros, freshly made (they take 20 mins) with vanilla and chocolate dipping sauces. So at least these were authentic.

If they had tried harder to deliver a more authentic Spanish tapas menu I would have rated them 4 out of 5.

QAR 750 for three people, including six drinks (wine, beer and one gin and tonic).

“Handy for flying”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I'm pretty much a repeat customer here. I love the fact you can get a decent glass of wine and good food so close to the airport. I've even walked to departures from here before. Food is well cooked and presented and just the right portion size. Wine list is reasonable and varied and prices are not bad for a hotel of this class. 3 course set menu costs QR89 and very good value

“It talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

One thing guaranteed to annoy me: being given a menu to look through, left for much too long, then when I order I'm told it's not available. I choose again to be told that also is not available. Guys, how about telling customers what's not available WHEN YOU GIVE THEM THE MENU? Apart from this, the food wasn't up to much! If you are in the Rotana better to eat at Chi Zen or the Jazz club!

Been to this place few times, recently just couple of months ago. Tried the set menu for business lunch which is great value but other times stick to tapas which is great.. The atmosphere and ambiance make one to unwind and enjoy the food and drinks
