We were ready for a cheesy Disneyland experience and thought this would be a fun change from history and the souk. There was confusion over where we were to sit which left us standing around waiting in a dining room full of a tourist bus people who were rowdy and having a good time snapping photos each time one of...

We had a lovely dinner at Chez Ali that ended with an exciting horse show and amazing stunts. After the last representation, the vivid music started to invade the starry night, while fireworks lighted the sky. The traditional food was very tasty and the mint tea that they served at desert was a delight. Do visit if you visit Marrakesh,... More

I had a wonderful dinner with my Moroccan friends at Chez Ali restaurant. It was a truly magic night, animated by various folklore troupes passing through the tents dancing and singing. Fantasia show with horseback acrobatics was spectacular. The meals were sumptuous. We especially loved traditional Bastilla cake. The night can get quite cool here...something like a jacket or sweater... More

Absolute rubbish. High priced. The ethic entertainment was awful. They looked bored,screamed like banshees and wanted money. At least ten different groups in tired costumes,no smiles,came to our table as entertainment,but it was far from that,it was irritating. The show was amateur and embarrassing in it's presentation. The food was very ordinary and far too much. There were no drinks... More

Hated it from beginning to end. We were greeted by the most miserable bunch of frumpy, badly dressed Moroccon woman, who clearly did not want to be there. The meal, apart from the soup was horrible and served by a Woman(although it may have been a man) who was so caked in makeup she could not smile. The tagine was... More

We visited mid March and dressed up for an anticipated cool evening. The reception with armed Berber horsemen, Ali Baba's cave, rows of dancers etc was good and the buildings round the arena looked impressively exotic. We had a jolly table of eight, so the somewhat disappointing food did not matter so much (good soup followed by mountains of couscous... More
