Best Restaurants In Doha 2021
The Cellar has mastered the Spanish art of tapas, with a selection of delectable Mediterranean bites to while away a balmy evening. There’s an extensive selection of standard fare in full portions for those wanting a square meal on one plate, but it is the tapas selection that makes the Cellar really stand out, with choices such as bite-size whoopie pie, chicken liver pâté with caramelised pear, saffron and parmesan arancini, grilled asparagus with cheese fondue, and grilled salmon with fennel and orange.
Ric’s Kountry Kitchen
From its name you might think his place is located somewhere rural, but it’s actually bang in the heart of downtown Doha. Not much country about that – but Ric’s does remain faithful to the image and ideals of quality diners so beloved in the United States. What does allow Ric’s to qualify as “country”, perhaps, is the homemade food and a genuinely friendly welcome by the American owners. So if you’re in search of pancakes, T-bone steaks or pillow-soft hamburger buns, you’ve come to the right place.
L’Wzaar Seafood Market
L’Wzaar, which is one of the best restaurants in Doha, on the waterfront in central Doha, allows you to choose your own fresh fish and seafood, which is sold by weight. You can choose to dine at a table overlooking the Persian Gulf, or watch the chefs prepare your meal in the open kitchen. There’s a great range of flavours and cooking styles on offer, and the menu includes fish and chips as well as sushi.
IDAM by Alain Ducasse
For a totally unique dining experience, head to the Museum of Islamic Art and lap up spectacular views of the Doha skyline at IDAM. Helmed by French-born Michelin-star Chef Alain Ducasse, the restaurant boasts a flavorsome selection of contemporary French Mediterranean cuisine; with an Arabic twist. This can all be savored within an exquisite setting created by French interior designer, Philippe Starck. The newly-opened terrace also offers a stunning backdrop of West Bay and the Doha Corniche; making it the ideal spot for a welcome cocktail or post-dinner digestif.

Opal by Gordon Ramsay
Famous for his potty mouth, there is no doubt though that Gordon Ramsay can cook. Opal, in the St. Regis Hotel, specializes in comfort food in a relaxed setting. Think falafel salad, wagyu burgers, chicken cashew curry and pan roasted hamour all with a side of chunky fries. The diverse menu means you certainly can find something for everyone in the family. To add to the choices, the in-house sommelier can pair your food with wine from one of Doha’s largest wine cellars.

CUT by Wolfgang Puck
He is known for feeding the stars at the Oscar Ceremony, and his popular restaurant in the super trendy Mondrian Hotel has a huge selection of his best dishes. At lunch you can choose from pastas and pizzas, while at night they serve up various fish dishes according to the daily catches. The speciality though, as the name hints at, is steak, best served with fries and homemade bearnaise sauce.
If you have never tried Yemeni food before, you are in for a treat. This simple restaurant is very affordable and is as traditional as they come: you can sit on the floor, eat with your fingers (use only your right hand), or sit at a table and use cutlery. Try the stews, the succulent chicken served with rice, the tandoor-oven cooked meats, the whole charred fish, and the buried meats, cooked in the ground. There is no alcohol served here.
Abdullah Bin Jassim St, Doha, Qatar
Jones the Grocer
This Australian concept restaurant, part of a chain, might not deliver your local Arabian-inspired cuisine, but should you be traveling with kids, or you just want a light, healthy lunch, followed by a decent coffee for a reasonable price without sitting down at a dressed table, this is the place for you. Favorites range from Eggs Benedict to Cesar Salad, an array of sandwiches made with seriously good bread, soups and burgers. There is an entire section for vegetarians, and the desserts are to die for. There is no alcohol served here.
