Wanting to review this gem since the longest I can remember, the perfect blend of Italian – French cuisine with a fantabulous bakery.
On my various visits, I’ve enjoyed their pizzas the most as well as the lasagne. I’ve to mention their kid friendly cutlery is a special touch and definitely a huge positive for a parent.
A few days before I’d an invite to sample some of the gorgeous dishes put together by the chef for a food bloggers dinner event hosted by Qatar Living as a celebration of completing 10 successful years in the country. It was a pleasure meeting some wonderful food bloggers alongside the warm staff at French Olive and Qatar Living. We were given a personalized tour of the restaurant and the open kitchen by the Chef himself.
I love seafood and to have a 3 course dinner voucher for 4 persons at Al Sanbouk restaurant in Al Jasra Boutique Hotel was just perfect to dive into my favorite food from the sea.
The hotel is absolutely mesmerizing with a very calm ambiance and so was the restaurant. It was an instant turn off, though, when we waited for 5 minutes and there was no one to attend to us in the restaurant. What surprised me was that unlike it’s neighbor restaurant – Al Argan; Al Sanbouk was empty entirely. We did have someone to assist us finally and we were seated at the table of our choice. I always think its nice to have people dining around me than to be at a restaurant by ourselves. If this was a romantic sort of an evening, it would be perfect!
