“Meat, Music, Magic!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Stop reading if you're vegetarian. Because you aren't going to be able to savour the wonder that is this Brazilian churrascaria. A mountain of meat keeps coming to your table until you tell the servers to stop. The signal: a flip of your coaster from green to red. Cleanse your palate with the grilled pineapple. The slightly charred thin slices flavoured with cinnamon and sugar will get you ready for your next cut of meat. The live band from Brazil really adds to the party atmosphere. The setting really is ideal for a fun night out with family, friends or colleagues -- perfect for a large dining part.

“Enjoyed it so much the first time we went back”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We first went for a Friday brunch in February. Fantastic food, excellent value for money and the staff are attentive to your needs. They explain the concept of red card/green card for your meat, bringing over cuts of meat you like more often, they were quick at refilling our glasses. The ambience is wonderful and the live band are very much in the background: not too loud at all.
We enjoyed the brunch so much we went back for dinner a few weeks later. Again wonderful service and cannot fault the staff at all.
I even encouraged my boss to go for the Friday brunch and he enjoyed it as well.
Certainly a place to go back to again and again.

“Delicious”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We had this on our last evening during our stay at the Marriott hotel. The food and service was great. 15 cuts of 4 different types of meat. 30 different items on the salad/dessert bar.

its quite costly around 300 QAR per person but it was well worth it.

“Good for "a boys night out"”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We went there with some friends and I noticed as soon as I stepped into the restaurant, that most of the guests were men. As the evening went by I did realize that this place is perfect if you want to eat a lot. The restaurant has a fixed price for salad buffet and meat that keep coming to your table until you say stop. Service was good and the food as well, but I don't think you get value for money unless you are ready to go for a huge meal.

“Epicure's Heaven!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

I did a small research on Brazilian restaurants in Doha and stumbled on Ipanema and all its great reviews. Made a reservation and plunged in. I wasn't disappointed at all. From the varied choice of meats, the cool ambience, good music from the live band, and the attentiveness of the waitresses, everything was in its perfect order. By the end of the evening we could all barely stand! Will definitely be back here!
