Time Out Says

If you've ever asked yourself what Italian dining on a banana-shaped island off the coast of Qatar would look and taste like, then you can now get the answers you've been looking for. Also that was a very abstract thought to have had.

Like much at this Anantara-managed hotel Riva is crisp and stylish with lots of airy light by day and intimate romance by evening. Take a table out on the balcony and you have a satisfying view down on the hotel's luxury Marina. The food is an authentic stab at homely Italian.

From the gourmet antipasti offerings, pizza, pasta and meat dishes to the last mouthful of imported cheese and creamy Italian dessert it is a stylish offering that fans of this cuisine should make a date to sail out to sea.
