The philosophy of Eataly Doha Festival City

Eat, Shop, Learn: the new Eataly Doha Festival City will also honour the three pillars of the company’s mission. It will be a large indoor area in which you can eat traditional Italian specialities, buy high-quality raw ingredients, and learn the culture and history of Italian cuisine.


Whether you are looking for a snack, a full Italian dinner, a simple coffee or a rich, quality breakfast, Eataly Doha Festival City promises to satisfy everyone with a wide range of authentic Italian cuisine. The restaurant’s menu has a wide variety of pasta, pizza, meat and fish dishes for you to try. There are also salads, platters to share, sweet and savoury breakfast dishes, and children’s options. Alternatively, at the counters you will find various Italian delicacies that are ready to taste in-store or take home, including specialities with Nutella, Gran cafè Illy, Venchi Ice Cream, as well as a Juice Bar and Pastry Counter.


The ingredients used by our chefs in the dishes on the menu can also be purchased from our market shelves, where you will find a wide range of pasta, rice, sauces, condiments and spices. There you will also find chocolate, biscuits, juices, tea, coffee, drinks and much more, directly sourced from small producers in Italy exclusively for Eataly.


For those interested in learning about the cornerstones of Italian gastronomy, the recipes of the most famous dishes and the techniques needed to prepare them, the store offers a teaching component to complete its service. Cooking courses, meetings and demonstrations will be organised here to spread knowledge about Italian cuisine and the history of its most beloved dishes.

There are so many reasons to visit the new Eataly Doha Festival City store so we look forward to welcoming you with lots of surprises and quality products for you to discover!
