I enjoyed a salmon dinner with a work colleague at La Mer. Designed as a cute French Cafe atop the Ritz-Carlton, the location is charming and warm. Prices were a bit high in my opinion.

The food is the highest culinary art with a perfect balance of flavors, techniques and textures. The service is of the best in the world. I have eaten in many of 3 star Michelin restaurants in my life, and the chef here is definitely giving Alsin Ducasse a run for his money .

It's the Wandering Yank again. Mrs. Yank had a milestone birthday this month, and a coworker suggested La Mer at the Ritz-Carlton for such a special occasion.

We went for a treat for our 9th wedding anniversary. Dinner was lovely, though the pianist may want to practice before performing next time. In a completely empty seating area the only other diners were right next to us. The Corbia wasn't available but they charged us the same price for the Hammour, presumably a cheaper local fish. The specialty... More

We chose La Mer for our Anniversary and Birthday celebration - we are so glad we did! As other reviewers have stated.. it is on the 23rd floor so the views are amazing and the pianist/violinist made the room feel really special . We opted for the 'blind tasting' menu with paired wines - stunning. We started off with an... More

We recently tried the Blind Tasting menu at La Mer. Miss Q&M and I happily arrived for dinner with eager appetites and high expectations. As the restaurant is situated on the 23rd floor of the Ritz Carlton, the panoramic views of the Doha coast and skyline boasts a romantic atmosphere.

An excellent food experience - again! Have been here several times over the last 7 years, and though the food mostly have been very good, it have also varied a bit according to the chef at the time.
