The Village Restaurant is a venue that houses three different concepts, sharing the same impeccable quality and service!The Deli is our coffee shop, open for breakfast from 7AM, and serving fine coffee, teas, juices and light snacks through out the day.

Went there for breakfast, great setting, great food, very good service but I feel sick at the idea of those bread baskets that will go directly to the waste bin after we leave. They should bring less freebies and top up if needed.

From the minute you walk into the village you are treated exceptionally well, the maître de is polite and accommodating, the waiting staff are attentive and polite and the quality of food could grace any five star hotel restaurant.

This place is definitely the biggest rip off in Doha. Portion sizes won't fill a toddler's stomach, they're like samples and super expensive too! Never again.

I choose the village because i have heard positive reviews about it and heard that they will give... More

I've visited many restaurants in Souq Waqif in the past two years, but never The Village until yesterday. It had been closed for a while for remodeling, and reopened recently. My wife and I enjoyed an excellent breakfast on the terrace, with a nice view of the bustling souq. I had labneh with zattar, she had menemen (a Turkish dish... More
