“Great lunch but slow”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

Really good food, menu changes regularly which is good for an express lunch in doha as many remain same forever!

However, you really can never go for a quick lunch, it takes sometimes 2 hours from start to finish!!! They really need to speed up!

“Great Business Lunch”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

I am a regular at La Varenne. Perfect place for a business lunch (sans wine). Consistently solid cooking and a great set menu. Very hard to beat for a dry business lunch in Doha.

“La Varenne Friday Brunch”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

How many times have you experienced a buffet where you don't go to the table rather the table is brought to you every time you want that particular favourite dish and unlimited times with a smile never failing as if icing on the cake?
Well, my only answer is the La Varenne Friday brunch wonderfully compiled by Chef Stuart Collins. This was my first experience where I ate to my fullest without taking any effort to fill my plate. The wonderful staff makes sure they spoil and spoon feed you to eternity (I'm the spoilt sorts, loved the pampering).

“Good lunch”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have been to this place 3 times for lunch and the food is good. The views from this place is fantastic. The business lunch options are good and value for money. I found that the size of plates are very big or deep unnecessarily which makes eating a bit inconvenient. The dessert portions are very big and should be reduced.

“Good”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Im not a massive foodie so wasnt that keen on coming here, I like traditional british food and im fine with that. But thought we would give it a try as it was highly recommended. Service was amazingly good and prices fairly reasonable. We ordered off of the business lunch menu and was surprised at how little food we got on our plates haha! Food was of a very high quality and views were brilliant. Would definetly recommend
