Just a beautiful and peaceful place, amazing scenery, great restaurants. Love it! This is a place I love to go and I will encourage people to go and see if they visit Qatar.

Good area and well constructed based on the Qatar heritage with lots of restaurants and shopping sites which are still undergoing construction. On the opposite side you have the beach and also the water sports center where you can rent jet skies etc. There are free golf cabs which can take you to a spot like the amphitheater which is...

It's about a collection of restaurants where you can hang out or have Shisha. Or you can have a walk but that depends on the weather. Nothing much. Expensive places and limited parking lots.

I visited Katara with my family yesterday, Tuesday and was utterly disappointed. We went around 7pm. The inside was poorly lit and it was very hard to find anything as there were no maps available at the Information desk and most of the staff spoke very little to no English. Nothing was happening at Katara. The few shops that were... More

The place to be during the weekends in Doha, when you need to have a night walk in a cultural place between arts and galleries... you surely have to visit Katara. You can move between the buildings in a golf car if you don't feel like walking, try to come during an event held in their Opera House or Drama... More

Went here for 2nd time during Ramadan, amazed with arrangements of Christmas light forming star & crescent moon. Also the meteor effect of lights! It feels already Christmas here! Should visit this place especially in holy month of Ramadan and experience also the treasure hunting the prize is QR 5000 :) WHAT AN AWESOME FEELING!

I came here expecting something much different than what I found. I guess the cultural aspects are better seen here with friends as I was bored and lost in the village when I went there in January. Would have been a better experience if the information center had a map, or could at least tell me what was open in... More

Katara became truly a prominent landmark in Doha for families. A well organised cultural village activities, amphitheater and beach are well known things at Katara. We visited few times during winter and Ramadan season. The decorations were very attractive. There are many restaurants closed by beach front. I have been there with my family and friends for many art and... More

During Ramadan, we thought it best to meet a group of friends and celebrate Iftar (the sunset feast to break the day's fast). Strolled through the Katara village, along the beach promenade, with the view of the Pearl, we were seated in a private, glass partitioned room with plush sofas. We dined on the most delicious food, the joy of... More
