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

We, a family of four with adult kids, had high expectations of this park, where we expected to dine and see all aspects of Morrocan cultural life. We did dine and during dinner (very copious) we were entertained by a number of regional bands who performed for us, but whose minds were not really in it. After dinner, there was... More

We booked this show through Expedia and thought it was going to be a cultural show - with some belly dancing thrown in. It turned out to be not quite what we expected. As we walked towards the entrance we were asked by horsemen if we wanted photos (for a small fee , of course) At the entrance, my wife... More

We booked this show through our hotel as it looked very cultural and entertaining, however turned out to be much the opposite. Once we got there which was a good 45 minute drive, we were lead into a nice traditional hut to have dinner. Dinner was some soup followed by a large slab of lamb placed in the middle of... More
