Friday brunch in the Double Tree Doha is hosted in their L2 Restaurant. You will understand why it’s called the L2 when you get in the elevator and press the L2 button.
Once again I was utilising a 2 for 1 offer from within The Entertainer.
There are very few 2 for 1 Friday Brunch offers in The Entertainer, and the Double Tree is one of them. And this is why my son and I ended up in the L2 restaurant last Friday. The cost of a Friday brunch in L2 is QR 149 (£30.50 or 41 USD) each. Use The Entertainer 2 for 1 offer and that comes down to QR 149 for both (QR 75 each). And to be honest QR 75 is all I would be prepared to pay for this underwhelming brunch.
To me it is not a destination Friday brunch. It’s more for guests staying in the hotel. The range of dishes is limited and only at well lets say acceptable standards. Nothing to rave about.
There was smoked salmon on offer though, and that was my starter course/plate sorted. Next was roast beef. Unfortunately this was pre-carved and dry.
The pasta station was live (the only live station in fact), but with no fish or meats it was a little bland for me. The cheese board was basic, but acceptable and the deserts were very ok.
There was very little atmosphere in the non smoking side. It was just a function room with some tables and chairs added. I didn’t check the smoking side, but I think that may have been the regular restaurant part and could have been a bit better. Our function room was… well a function room without character.
Staff were excellent as was service.
Not a Friday brunch to rave about. Had I paid QR 300 for the 2 of us on this visit, I would have felt over charged. But at QR 75 each this represents good value. Thank goodness for The Entertainer.
