I looooove La Spiga!

It is my favourite restaurant in Doha (partly because there ain't a Hooters in town). Oh, and because the fooood is soooooo damn goooood; excellent value for money (especially if you're crashing their Business Lunch); and the staff are very friendly. The atmosphere is great too, and they serve Savannah Cider (it's dry, but you can drink it - so I do). My favourite dish is the batutta: sirloin steak that's been beaten like a ginger kid, sorry tenderised, and served in a spicy marinade.

I would highly recommend La Spiga By Paper Moon Opposite Market By Jean-Georges if you value good food, good service and friendly staff in a relaxed and pleasant environment. I would not recommend it if you love the culinary pleasures offered by Burqa King or a certain rusty-nutted clown, or a clientele that thinks that low-cost flammable sportswear is smart-but-casual.

EXCELLENT: From the very beginning until the need, I loved the whole dining experience. The staff was very quick and efficient. The offer in the menu was fantastic. As an italian restaurant, it has a wide range of courses in case you don´t want to have either the typical pizza or pasta . The roasted hammour with saffron sauce and the papardelle paper moon are simply one of my favorite courses in Doha. Regarding the ambiance, W hotel really knows how to make your business and social meetings a hit. La espiga is holding the exact same spirit!..finally, and as a personal suggestion, I am sure that many guests would love to have some chocolate dessert in the business lunch menu;)Thanks for a great day to day dining experience!

I live in Doha and attend both business and social functions throughout the hotels in Doha. La Spiga is a preferred favourite of all my associates and friends. The service is exceptional by the managers and supervisors, the food never fails to delight and the interesting wine choices do allow it to stand out. It also serves as a wonderful bar for after work, with a relaxed and small environment conducive to talking, which is invaluable in itself.
