“Perfect for a break”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Excellent location for a morning break or an afternoon tea. Offers a selection of cold and hot meals, snacks and drinks. it is an upmarket cafe and the lounges offer the best views across the bay and internally towards the vast lobby.

“Nifty Experience”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

It really is all about the space. And the view. While the food and drink selection is indeed a tad pricey for a cafe, you also have to consider where you are. Inside the gorgeous museum designed by I.M. Pei, the setting could not be lovelier. You are on the water looking out on West Bay through floor to ceiling glass windows--truly majestic. This isn't your typical muse cafeteria, so don't expect bustling service. Just soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the beauty that is the pride of Qatar.

“Service slow, overpriced, not enough seating, no soul”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Firstly there is not enough seating and we had to wait for seating on a Monday lunch. The service was slow, we had to get up and chase a waiter to take our order, only to be told they were out of tomato soup. One of our drinks never came at all. The food portions are small and it is over priced. There is no soul, you sit in a large area with no partitions etc and no music. The food tasted ok, but seriously its nothing much.

“Nice view but pricey”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Stopped by the café to have coffee after visiting the exhibitions in MIA. The ambience was nice but the food and beverages were on the expensive side. The karak costs QR12 and the taste was not that strong and certainly very sweet. You get better karak in Wakra Babachapati or in Katara. You pay for the view!
