The Three Sixty is one of the three restaurants of theTorch -the high tower you see in the first picture below. I was a guest here and we had the chance to enjoy an exceptional meal with the most stunning views of the whole of Doha. In my review below I explain everything.
This is my review and comments about the Restaurant.
It Pays to Give it a Try – Dining with a Difference!
The Aspire Zone is the triumphant symbol of Qatar's sporting heritage. It is a huge site (250 hectare) and I could easily refer to it as the majestic Sports city of Doha
The Torch sits on the very heart of the Aspire Zone and we had the opportunity to visit it both in the day and also at night with all those lights on. It is a haven for the discerning traveler, the sportsman, businessman or the one who seeks tranquility and relaxation in luxury and wellbeing.
Located on the 47th floor of The Torch the Three Sixty revolving restaurant offers a panoramic view that simply takes your breath away and it is unlike any other in Qatar. It is not more expensive than other 5* restaurants in Doha and definitely it’s worth coming up here even for once. Indeed a bargain to what it offers!
If you plan dining at the restaurant I suggest making reservations especially if you plan coming on a Friday or Saturday. These two nights the restaurant keeps really busy.
The list on the menu was long, and there were several promotions like the Norway Trout with appetizers and main courses, or the Italian Regional Food promotion based on platters from famous regions of Italy like Toscana, Lazio, Campagna and Sicilia, and the list went on and on with anything you can imagine
It was our last night at Doha and we decided to have some Oriental food at the beginning so we asked for the Oriental Mezzeh platter. This was at Qr. 65 and there were appetizers like hummus, tabouleh, aubergine salad, staffed vine leaves, marinated feta kobebeh, samosa and garlic shrimps. The platter was so beautifully presented that I could not resist take a picture of it. The salads were freshly cut and the ingredients of the highest quality.
My main course was the Parmesan Chicken for Qr.95. It was delicious. The Pan-fried chicken breasts were accompanied with parmesan cream sauce and mushroom risotto but I asked for some asparagus which were added as well.
My husband was delighted with his Spaghetti Carbonara. I try to avoid creamy and fatty staff but out of curiosity I tried it and found it irresistible. Qr.90.
We finished our meals with a platter of all kinds of fresh berries for me, so nicely presented that looked like piece of art and a sweet dainty morsel that my husband appreciated a lot
Every single dish we had in this accolade quality restaurant was of superior ingredients. I believe a meal out here guarantees nothing but the best. Before leaving I felt that I had to meet the chef and congratulate him personally for his amazing cuisine. It was an exceptional dining experience and I also met the f&b manager who joined us for a while. Both Mr. Mohamed and Mr. Zaid Jana make a dynamic team and there is such a good climate among the people in the cuisine he was telling me, simply because they love what they do, which in turn creates this high level of professionalism that delivers results.
Have in mind that no alcoholic drinks are served out here but there is a variety of 'moktails’ to meet the need and preference of the most demanding guest. I am very picky when it comes to wine and I match the right wine with the appropriate dish but honestly I did not miss the wine this time. The ‘moktails I had were of exquisite taste…. just as good.
The service was impeccable, the restaurant had a classy touch of glamour and style, the atmosphere romantic with the piano playing classic ballads, and from up there we had the most stunning view of the town. What else could one want! It is a restaurant that has it all.
