Restaurant Review: Animato

One Friday morning, my friend and I decided to have our breakfast outside. We totally forgot that during Ramadan, all restaurants are close! 

We went everywhere... when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere.

Hot weather + hungry tummy = DISASTER!

We were in the Westbay Area when we finally decided to eat in one of hotels in the area. 

So here's a quick review of Animato in Moevenpick Tower & Suites.

Animato is Moevenpick's All Day Dining Restaurant. We have been to Moevenpick's Wok Mee. If you wanna know our experience read here.

Animato is located on the 1st floor of the building. 

We were welcomed by a hostess and we're asked if we were in house guests. (my friends and I have this weird habit of not dressing well, like what happened here). We said we were walk-in guests then we were escorted to a quiet table near the window. 

We were asked for our drinks. If you have read some of my restaurant posts, you will immediately know our drinks.... lemon mint!!! Yey!!!

Oh!!! So our breakfast turn to brunch!

Food Variety: Medium - its not so big but its not so small. Starters are quite big but the main course comprises of pasta, barbecue chicken and rib eye. There are some arabic food, well... it is Ramadan and it is an Arabic country. 

Attitude of staff: courteous and very friendly

Ambiance: quiet and comfortable

Value for money: wallet/pocket friendly

Will I recommend the place: Yes!

Verdict: 4/5

Hope you like my little review of Animato restaurant.

Do you have any embarrassing experience in a restaurant?

How are you feeling today?

Are you living an InterContinental Life?

Yesterday, my team and I checked in at InterContinental Doha The City to unwind and enjoy the weekend.

We booked 2 twin bedded rooms. I shared my room with Mavic while Abdien and Mina shared in one room.

Mavic & Mina checked in first at 12:30 pm while Abdien came at 5:00 pm and I came at 6:45pm.

I came just in time for Iftar.

We had our Iftar at The Square. There was a massive variety of food. 

We enjoyed our Iftar. My favorites are the chicken rice and shawarma. 

Our room is in 42nd floor. Let me just say it... room is so spacious!

Nespresso machine!
The bathroom is HUGE!!! I can actually dance inside. I love their bathroom amenities. Why? Because the scent is lemon! Me love some lemons, you know. It awakens your senses in the morning!

I did enjoy my stay at InterContinental Doha The City. I'll give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Why 3.5?

1. Their mobile charger is available only in Concierge Desk. It maybe shallow but imagine if you are waiting for an important call and your mobile went dead. You have to stay at the Concierge Desk to wait for the call while your mobile is charging.

2. You need to ask for room amenities like dental kit, slippers and bathrobe. I booked for 2 guests but amenities provided by Housekeeping was for one guest only.

3. We ordered pizza but nothing was prepared for us. 

at Room 4208

However, check-in procedure went smooth and all staff are courteous. 

Will definitely recommend the hotel. Actually, I have one friend who booked after I said my stay was enjoyable.

Speak to you soon.
