Traveler & Travel Advisor Reviews: 4.9 out of 5 stars  

If you’ve traveled with us before, you’ll know we love great food and we’re always ready to recommend an exceptional eatery. Doha has been a wonderful destination to indulge in our passion for gastronomy and we love sharing our memorable dining experiences with our guests. Doha has no shortage of wonderful restaurants with more on the horizon. This flourishing city has a little bit of everything in terms of dining, including more than a few big names. We’ve enjoyed testing them out for you and have compiled a list of our favorites, which are detailed below.

La Mar by Gaston Acurio

223 Lusail Street
+974 4484 4919

Acurio is a particularly celebrated chef who has helped to introduce Peruvian cuisine
to the world. We’re big fans of La Mar’s location in Miami’s Mandarin Oriental and were excited to try the beachfront Doha eatery.Specialties include ceviches and tiraditos, which are delicious fresh fish dishes that incorporate various fresh fish with juices (usually citrus) and sauces. We also love their Lomo Saltado.



Doha West Bay
+974 4446 0170

Another memorable meal was at Hakkasan, one of Doha’s hottest restaurants. With locations in London, NYC and Miami, it’s pretty famous. Hakkasan is known for having a great vibe and features Michelin star rated Cantonese and Asian fusion food within a nightclub feel. Located at the St. Regis, one of our 2022 World Cup properties, it’s wonderfully convenient for our guests of the property.



The Corniche
+974 4494 8600

As one of the most well-known restaurants in the world, we need not wax poetic about Nobu. What makes the Doha eatery a standout is its location at the end of a pier, providing guests with views over the water and back to the Corniche. It’s a pretty spectacular spot.


Astor Grill

Doha West Bay
+974 4446 0000

If you asked us where to find a great steak in Doha, we’d send you to Astor Grill. Inspired by New York steakhouses, Astor Grill presents a modern version complete with incredible cuts of beef, fresh seafood, and an extensive wine list. Another St. Regis gem.



West Bay Lagoon
+974 4484 8588

STK is another of Doha’s incredible restaurants. The popular restaurant has about ten outposts worldwide and boasts a club-like atmosphere. It’s a buzzing place with a fun atmosphere and great steak.


Toro Toro

Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl
+974 4035 5101

Located close to the St. Regis, Toro Toro offers modern Mexican influenced cuisine by Richard Sandoval (foodies may know his name from La Lagune, Brisas at Mayakoba or another of his 30+ restaurants worldwide).



Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl
+974 4035 5089

The multiple award winning Nozomi is consistently well rated and a local favorite. It’s
a happening place that offers contemporary Japanese cuisine and spectacular water


Spice Market

Doha West Bay
+974 4453 5135

The concept is Southeast Asian Street Food in an upscale atmosphere and it definitely
works. Spice Market was named Time Out Doha’s Restaurant of the Year in 2018 and
Best Asian Restaurant in 2019. The menu is extensive and the only downside is not being
able to sample it all.



The Corniche
+974 4422 4488

Located inside the stunning Museum of Islamic Art (MIA), IDAM is Alain Ducasse’s first
restaurant in the Middle East. The menu is mostly French Mediterranean with Arabic
influences. The décor, courtesy of Philippe Starck, provides a memorable backdrop
to the wonderful food. The service and the views are also excellent. The museum is
absolutely worth visiting too!


Doha clearly has some amazing restaurants and there’s a lot more to love about this incredible city. To find out our favorite things to see and do in Doha for the upcoming World Cup, check out our Doha Travel Guide.
