Such an amazing experience, this restaurant is one of the best in Doha. The variety of the meets are special and delicious. The atmosphere is excellent with nice music. It is a little pit expensive, but worth it. Don't miss the grilled pineapple and enjoy.

Wonderful Salad bar, great choice of seafood (I don't eat seafood, but great choice) sauces and sides all excellent. The various meats just keep coming, lamb, steak, beef, different cuts, absolutely amazing. Great drink... More

Awesome Brunch Ipanema (fridays) had the usual hospitality atmosphere with its friendly staff. The manager Mr John was keen in providing in depth explanation for some friends which came for the 1st time and the meat service was non stop. Drinks were spot on, Caipirinhas made to perfection. The barbecue could have some additional cuts such as chicken heart and... More

The waiters come around all evening with meat to sample, and every single one of them was aware of my GF status and was able to inform me whether I could or couldn't eat the meat. Very impressed in a city where it is not so easy to find gluten free food.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Ipanema. It's a very typical Brazilian restaurant where the meat comes to your table until you tell it to stop. Most of the selections were very well prepared and tasty. The restaurant is not large so be sure to get a reservation and if you can go early for the best seats. The entertainment... More

We went there for a birthday celebration during the Rio Carnival. We were promised Carnival entertainment and dancing. Instead the band seemed very tired, and there was one burst of dancing for 2-3 mins only. The atmosphere is very poor, akin to dining in a Pizza Hut, with Formica tables and bright lighting. The food was ok, but expensive, I... More
