One cold and very windy Friday afternoon, we braved our way towards Sheraton Doha’s La Veranda restaurant for a brunch. It’s possibly the coldest day I’ve ever experienced in Doha so far, the cold wind made it all the worst I guess. My friends booked a table on La Veranda’s beautiful outdoor seating because trust me, you would want to sit there whenever you visit this restaurant. Right by the sea with a sweeping view of the whole of Doha’s skyline, that’s quite hard to beat if you ask me. We had to ask the staff of the restaurant though to remove the shade of our table to let the sun warm us for a bit.
It’s just gorgeous isn’t it? We all agreed that it’s probably the most beautiful outdoor seating we’ve ever been to here in Doha – The Greek Mister enjoyed it the most as he sipped on his beer with the sun warming him. It reminded him of our vacation days in Greece I think, can’t blame him because that’s what we do most of the time whenever we’re back there. It was a wonderful afternoon, how I wish we could have days like this in Doha forever.
Being an Italian restaurant, La Veranda focused on Italian dishes of course on their Friday brunch spread. It wasn’t a huge spread compared to others but as I’ve said time and again, you can’t really rate a buffet based on how much food they serve – I do believe that quality is more important than quantity.
They had quite a few selections for salad and cold seafood, a pasta station, some hot dishes and of course pizza. I focused more on the seafood selection and then the meat afterwards – one can’t resist the temptation brought by a rib eye steak if it’s presented like this. It’s a crime if you don’t eat some I guess.
To be very honest, the food they served was good but I guess we enjoyed it more because of the fantastic ambiance that we had around us. After the meal, we all just sat there to enjoy the scenery. We probably would’ve stayed longer if not for the fact that at 4:30pm it became really very cold. We’re going back there absolutely. 🙂
