We went for a romantic meal for two, torn between this place and the Shangri La Chinese. French cuisine won for the night's entertainment. First course started promisingly, except my first two choices were not on the menu tonight (including no snails). When the mains arrived we had to swap them out (beef salad versus bouillabaisse) as I was incredulous... More

Christmas Eve meal with the family. We were surprised when we arrived to discover that we had the restaurant to ourselves. The wine is the highlight here, many restaurants fail to store and serve wine correctly in Doha leading to a hit and miss experience, however this is not the case at La Varenne. Excellent food and the staff were... More

If very good French food and a good selection of quality wines to go with it. Staff is very friendly and helpful, the prices are high but again it is also good quality!

I went to this place for a business lunch with my colleagues. The service was excellent. Not too crowded. Amazing views of the city. Menu a bit limited.

I visited LV again for lunch with colleagues after I had not been there for a while. Service was really bad. There was almost noone around in a place that used to be pretty crowded at Lunch time. But still, service was slow. The waitress had no clue what she was doing. Didn't wait until we finished our order before... More

The decoration is ok , cozy a bit , but too dark that you can't see the menu we had to turn our phone flashes to see what was written. The food wasn't that good, For starter we had the fired calamari which they were so chewy we had to swallow them without chewing because we couldn't even cut them... More
