Overlooking the Arabian sea from the 28th floor, is La Varenne boasting classical French cuisine served in a contemporary setting with little bit of everything in their brunch and nothing comparable to buffets or brunches you may have or will try.
One easily falls in love with the restaurant as you enter; with very open colours and simple pastels. A nice beautiful Damien Hirst art piece (how Qatar loves art) just behind the reception complimenting the décor.
What instantly takes your heart is the enthusiasm of the staff eagerly awaiting to assist and serve you.
We are guided to our table and though the restaurant was full, you will not feel crowded or intruded and you can easily enjoy your privacy amidst a house full.
To start with; was a crispy bread that was soft and chewy on the inside with butter on the side.
Our first starter dish was a simple and light chicken omelette - the omelette was itself very thin and perfect.
smoked duck, foie gras parfait and duck rillettes along with a cauliflower soup (my first time and it was
different and refreshing). The crusty toasted bread very well played with the spreadable duck rillettes.
I could go on with describing all the salad varieties but there is still so much more to mention that I wouldn't want to give a miss.
My friend ordered for Grilled Lamb Tenderloin - medium well.
All main courses are served with the finest selection of vegetables and potatoes.
Without a doubt, I give it 5 out of 5. (Definitely going back again)
