I tried the Caramel High Tea twice in the last 2 week, it was obviously good on the first time so I went back.
On the first time, I filled the online enquiry form and later I received an email confirming my reservation with the special requests (1 vegetarian option). I arrived there with my friend and I decided also to go for vegetarian options to make it easier. There was a good variety of savoury and sweet option (scones and cream are my favourite). We were offered an alternative to the Beef Wallington and it was very good. The part I didn't like was what they called 'Sorbet' or 'Meringue', prepared with liquid nitrogen. I expected to get sorbet with meringue on the side but ended up with a mixture prepared with whipped cream (too rich) and not even frozen.
The next visit was with 3 friend and we tried the variety of option (except beef for me) and it was great.

Absolutely delightful, heavenly, and so tasty. We first visited the Caramel, Rotana several months ago after reading about how good their afternoon tea was. We certainly were not disappointed. From the warm welcome and amazing service, particularly from Mr Hassan the manager, to the amazing teas and food, the Caramel high tea does not disappoint. Its so amazing that we are frequent visitors and cannot believe how good value it is at only 125QR. The high tea consists of a selection of amazing tea, my particularly favourites being the chocolate mint and mint, followed by an unlimited supply of sandwiches and cakes. Nothing is too much trouble and if you have a particularly favourite the staff are only too happy to replenish the plate with all of your favourites time and time again until you accept defeat and say STOP ! This is followed by the best Beef Wellington and mash we have ever tasted, again if you want seconds and thirds or maybe more, the food keeps coming. If you have room and thats a big if, this is followed by amazing icecream anf berries compote. Truly a delight, we can't praise it enough and look forward to our next visit.

We were offered a selection of teas, all of which you could taste before ordering (it's there on the picture).
Tea, scones, sandwiches, pastries, Arabic sweets are refillable so it's like a never ending tea buffet.
They also offer beef wellington and ice cream freshly made in front of you.
Vegan options are available instead of beef, but let them know as soon as you place your order for the best experience.
Service was good and quick.
I'm definitely coming back!

This is simply the best high tea in Doha for the value. A true hidden gem! On Thursdays from 3p-7p the high tea special is only 125 QAR a person. It includes unlimited tea (which you can sample) and mocktails, extensive finger sandwiches served with scones and arabic pastries that you can refill upon request, Beef Wellington carved at your table served with mash potatoes and Ratatouille, and sorbet made at the table. Everything is delicious and the service is superb. Hassan and his wait staff are all very attentive. I will be coming back very soon. Go before the secret gets out!
