Great news for Brazilian-food enthusiasts and those wanting to try out the South American cuisine for the first time: Ipanema at the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha has reopened its doors to welcome diners after a month-long renovation.

The newly-upgraded eatery features a refreshing new design and an expanded menu in addition to a brand new pre-dinner drinks area.

Embracing a vibrant colour scheme, complemented by sophisticated new furniture and enlarged indoor seating, the award-winning Brazilian restaurant presents a culinary experience that is not only flavorful but also truly relaxing.

The redesign of the entrance has been planned to create a more spacious welcoming area and an easy access to the new lounge area. The new linear display of pendant lights defines the simplicity, originality and charm of the space with its amber, wine and crystal glass colors.

The brand new lounge area features an expanded beverage menu from different regions of Brazil. With the upgraded features, the restaurant becomes a perfect place to unwind with scrumptious food and a great selection of cocktails and mocktails. 

A live Latino band adds to the livelieness of the ambiance at Ipanema. 

What more to ask when you have professional gauchos serving  you extensive cuts of succulent, fire-roasted meat at the comfort of your table?

Although a real treat for meat-lovers, Ipanema also presents seafood options, a salad bar, soups and side dishes in a chic and amiable atmosphere.
