Winner Best Brunch Market by Jean Georges While this popular contemporary European restaurant may be small, it’s remarkable how much food they pack into the venue for their famous jazz brunch. And delicious food at that. A carving station, foie gras counter and cold seafood bar are just some highlights. Plus, live vocal jazz complements this cosmopolitan experience perfectly. W Doha, West Bay (4453 5353).
Highly commended Opal by Gordon Ramsay Opal by Gordon Ramsay encompasses the idea of the true British brunch. The a la carte service means everything on the menu is progressively brought to the table. Eggs appear in several ways, alongside other delicious dishes such as the wild mushroom risotto. When the weather’s pleasant, sitting on the terrace is the absolute way to go. St Regis Doha, West Bay Lagoon (4446 0000).
Choices The food selection at this brunch is epic with grill stations, steaks, seafood, pasta, salads, sushi and very good desserts. The live jazz band in the background really sets the mood and the vibe is always bustling as this is one popular Friday afternoon soiree. Oryx Rotana, Khulaifat (4402 3333).
La Varenne This authentic yet contemporary French brasserie offers a brunch with a twist. Myriad traditional French starters are laid across your table and you can choose your main course from the menu. The dessert trolley that brings to-die-for sweets completes the experience and the dishes on offer change weekly, so it’s different every time. 28th floor, Tornado Tower, West Bay (4499 0680).
Nusantao The culinary forces behind the Four Seasons Friday brunch are certainly discerning. The sheer amount of food will amaze you, and the quality is just as astounding. The space is vast and it’s the perfect day out for families with a dedicated atrium and bouncy castle for kids so mum and dad can enjoy the day with ease. It may be one of Doha’s priciest brunches but it’s worth every riyal. Four Seasons Doha, West Bay (4494 8601).
Spice Market Brunch at Spice Market is lively. Cooking stations are dotted throughout the venue, featuring an ever changing menu of Asian favourites including their famed sushi. The atmosphere is on a high thanks to Doha Jazz and you always leave feeling like you’ve attended one of the hippest parties in town. W Hotel (4453 5000).
The Grill It’s easy to see the allure of this brunch – natural light streams into the spacious dining area but you can also enjoy the experience al fresco where a DJ plays and an outdoor barbeque is served. Loyal patrons keep returning because of their exciting themed brunches from the red carpet to the Harley Davidson crew. Plus, kids can enjoy their own playground area and separate buffet. Grand Hyatt Doha, West Bay Lagoon (4448 1234).
The Late Brunch The Late Brunch is for those unable to hit the earlier session as well as those who don’t want Friday festivities to end. Tables are set up on the promenade by the beach. Cabanas double up as food stations while the charcoal barbeque grills meats and seafood. Servers are on hand with blankets if it gets nippy but the best way to warm up is on the dance floor with DJ Kinky D spinning tracks encompassing reggae to disco. Doha Marriott, Khulaifat (4429 8888).
