Great views can elevate a meal to great heights and add an extra level to your dining experience. Whether you’re looking for a perfect romantic dining destination or a nightclub to dance the night away, we’ve collated a list of five restaurants with the best views in Doha!
Yum Yum - K108 Hotel
One thing to bear in mind when visiting K108: don’t judge a book by its cover. Although the hotel may have an understated exterior, its interiors are absolutely stunning. Yum Yum, the restaurant, is situated on one of the topmost floors of the K108 Hotel. The restaurant boasts large sliding doors that open up to reveal beautiful views of Souq Waqif, Doha’s trademark Corniche, West Bay and even the Pearl-Qatar. Yum Yum serves French cuisine (which definitely adds to the already romantic ambiance) and an average meal for two people is about QR 400. Its burgers is one of the restaurant’s most signature menu items! The hotel is also known for opting to donate all of its profits to charity.
Strata is located on the 55th and 56th floors of InterContinental Doha The City Hotel and offers extraordinary views of Doha’s hustle and bustle. It’s a nightlife venue where you can dance the night away! You can also enjoy its laid-back lounge vibes and sushi platters a bit earlier in the week, if you want to avoid the loud music and dancing. The food menu is primarily finger foods, which is complemented with a large variety of options for beverages. Strata is known for its super friendly staff and versatile environment! An evening out out for two will cost around QR 450.
Pure is an open-air bar located at the top of DoubleTree by Hilton and offers an amazing 360 degree view of Doha. Primarily a bar with some great cocktail concepts, Pure also offers a finger-foods menu. The BBQ and bruschetta are totally recommended menu items! The bar does get very busy on the weekends but the environment is more relaxed earlier in the evenings. The live music and DJ have been mentioned in the reviews on their Zomato listing as a highlight and as something to look forward to.
Zengo is an Asian inspired restaurant located on the 61st floor of The Kempinski Residences and Suites in Dafna. Zengo has panoramic views of the sea and Doha cityscape and is great for a quiet afternoon. Or, if you’re in the mood for a night out, you can avail of their happy hour specials in their lounge from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The menu offers a large variety of Asian dishes including sushi, tempura, dim sum and stir fries. The dumplings are a popular item! Zengo has a Friday brunch that runs between 12:30 pm and 4:00 pm and will cost QR 390 including select beverages.
The name says it all. Sky View Bar — a rooftop bar — is located on the 11th floor of the La Cigale Hotel in Fereej Bin Mahmoud. Although it’s the lowest rooftop bar on this list, that does not detract from the beautiful views offered by this establishment. You can expect finger foods on the limited food menu but a smorgasbord of drink options from the bar. It’s recommended to make a reservation beforehand to secure the best seats in the house!
