Food was good and lots of it . The wine list was pretty decent but the concept is good for groups or good deprived people but would not class it as particularly romantic or just for 2 . Definitely would want to go there hungry and be into eating meat . More bbq than fine dining but expensive bbq. I... More

The Ipanema restaurant is in the Marriott Marquis hotel just over the main road from the apartment that I live in currently.

The meat and salad bar was amazing. The staff were all so friendly and looked after us attentively. There was a good choice of drinks which were continuously flowing. The band were great and there was a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere. Well worth a visit!

After 2 failures at Ipanema's rival, Rodizio, it was time to return to the king of Brazilian grills in Doha. Great selection of meat and fantastic service. Aparantly there was a salad bar, but with a steady stream of animal flesh there was no chance to eat rabbit food.

If you are a meat lover, this is the place to go. Start with some nice bread and starters delivered to your table, then grab your salads and other side dishes. Next, turn over your disk to green and the waiters will keep coming with a great selection of meat dishes on a skewer. They will keep coming with different... More

Typical Brazilian meat restaurant, waiters go round with meat on long stiks and they serve you till you turn the sticker on red. The buffer is pretty international with sushi, Asian and fish choice. Overall a good place for dinner, nothing outside the expected. Dessert variety is pretty big, as every 5 star hotel. Service was nice and professional. I... More

If you are a meat lover, you should find a good Brazilian grill. This one will not disappoint and will give you one of best of its kind. the atmosphere is a bit jammed and loud. But that should make it a good family visit. the meat quality and the service are excellent.
