Went once for a dinner before flying back home the next day, the ambiance was great, the band was amazing and the FOOD is terrific. It’s like a meat paradise with the marching men walking around parading the meats in their skewers. They really got my attention and curiosity, it’s just bad that I don’t have big appetite to eat...

I've been in Doha for about 4 years. This is one of my most preferred restaurants. Food reminds me of my hometown, service is friendly and helpful. Drinks are done as if I was in the beach. Recommend to all.

If any of you know what a Brazilian restaurant is, you will definitely not enjoy this one. The meat is like rubber, they only have 5 kinds of meat that is served to you after you have chased the waiter to the kitchen. The appetizers have nothing to do with Brazilian..homos and mutabal!!! You can't even enjoy drinking with the... More

We have been to Ipanema's twice and each time was better than the next, this is due to the excellent staff of workers providing 5 star service and food.

As a regular of another hotel's buffet, I was more than happy that friends suggested Impenema. 4 of us, one vegetarian, had a fantastic afternoon. The meat was cooked to perfection, and the serving staff were very attentive and very professional. We were lucky to have Rose as our server who looked after us so well. I wish all staff... More

Living in Doha I have been planning to have dinner here for a while. The opportunity arose when we were looking for a place to take a group of visiting work colleagues. First, the positives. The fresh buffet salads were of high quality. Superior to what I have encountered elsewhere in Doha. This complimented the high quality cuts of meat.... More

This restaurant is located in the Marriott hotel in Doha. There is a very big buffet of salads and starters , too much I suppose. The waiters come to the table with the skewers with different types of meat which most are very tasty. Large selection of desserts to follow... Very nice experience which I recommend.

I enjoyed an excellent dinner at Ipanema, again, this past Thursday with a small group of my colleagues. The food started with a basket of breads, make sure to try the pão de queijo (cheese bread) and a trip to the salad bar. In addition to their normal range of salad options including soups, meats, seafood and salads there were... More

I was late to join my friends at the Brunch on Friday at the Ipanema in the West Bay.

It was a great restaurant and all the... More
