Great range of sharing dishes - waiter was helpful and able to advise on different dishes but not selecting the most expensive ones which can often happen. All staff were pleasant and friendly.

As a Peruvian for me was an amazing experience because the taste of the food was very very close than our country. I order classic ceviche, causa (love the new version), lomo saltado and Pie de Limón (totally different presentation than usual but really good). The location is great, relaxing, beautiful view and perfect illumination. The workers are really nice. The only thing that they need to improve is the Pisco Sour.

The overall atmosphere is one of a kind in Doha which has an outdoor seating right on the beach. In addition, the menu provides a good variety of options to choose from and the service is excellent

Best restaurant I’ve been in Doha. Not cheap, but no one should go there expecting taco bell prices. Perfect food and place.

We had a wonderful time at La Mar, celebrating a birthday. The food was fantastic as well as the service. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived (7pm) but filled up nicely with a nice atmosphere as the night went on. We would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone who has never been

Well done and keep up the good work

This has to be my favourite restaurant in Doha. The food is always delicious and I love its setting on the beach. I would love an outside non-smoking area but that is a bug bear of mine for everywhere in Doha in the winter. The music is loud but that is only because I’m in my fifties and moving away from nightclub atmospheres lol. After a couple of drinks that becomes less of a problem.
Definitely worth trying if you want something a little bit different.

Everything was great, the only comment I have is that the waiter did not tell us about an appetizer that it was all raw meat, which is something one needs to mention in case the guests dont eat which we all didnt, but they happily replaced it with another dish we chose and did not add to the bill. All in all, great experience

The service was excellent, the food was very good but the portions are quite small and it's very expensive. We spent almost QAR1,000 for four of us with sharing starters, sharing mains and 1 dessert and 2 beers each.
Having said that, it's lovely for a special occasion and has a lovely setting on the beach overlooking the West Bay skyline.

Came here on our 37 th wedding anniversary!
First time! Stunning place! Great food and staff were lovely!!
Only grumble was didn’t get any special table even though had said was an anniversary dinner! Waitress said could sit anywhere!
Ice cream came with happy anniversary which was nice but they got the years wrong! Haha!
Will be trying lunch to sit outside for the views!
Used to come here when it was The fish market and belly dancing so a great change!

The chef and staff were incredible! The chef brought out food for me and 6 teenage girls who had never tried Peruvian food and very hesitant to try the cebiche. But they loved it!! The view is the best in Doha and food is just as good as it is in Peru!!
