“Good restaurant but limited menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is a decent restaurant located on the rooftop of Al Rumaila Boutique Hotel in the famous Souq Wakif. It is not a large restaurant has limited seating capacity probably 20 -25 guests. It has a open kitchen. It has a good view of the westbay, which looks good in the evening due to external lighting in that area. Food is very good. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Serve arabic and middle eastern dishes. Not much of a choice in the beverages section. Overall there limited dishes on the menu. If you are in the Souq area worth a look in.

“One of the best restaurants in the Souk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This was one of the best restaurants we tried in Souk Waqif. The service was excellent, and the food out of this world. Most western restaurants overcook their sea food, but the grilled lobsters we had were done just right, fresh and succulent. They serve it on a pot of charcoal, so the food did not get cold too quickly. The duck was incredible too. We had the same experience as Mooney 88.

“Love this restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Had a great meal at this rooftop restaurant in the Arumaila Boutique Hotel, in Souk Waqif, Doha.
The service was excellent, the waiter was so helpful, and the food was top notch. There are also great views from the restaurant.
I would recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are visiting Souk Waqif

“Best meal, service and setting in the Souq Waqif”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place is a real find, but sadly many people miss it because it is not on street level. The view of the city is spectacular, and it is quiet because it is above the noise of the street. The food was incredible -- much better than anything we have had on the main drag of the Souq. I had a rotisserie duck which was served with a side salad and grilled vegetables, and it was huge and delicious. I took it home and got two more meals out of it. The service was top notch, and the chef came by our table to greet us and make sure that everything was to our liking. Don't miss this place!

“Al matbakh rooftop grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We visited the rooftop restaurant of this hotel although I wasn't staying there. The restaurant was fantastic, amazing views and excellent food. The waiter Ibrahim gave us the most outstanding service, nothing was too much trouble. He showed me the kitchen and even introduced me to the chef. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. A wonderful experience in Doha.
