Felt like a cruise ship. Tour groups everywhere. Food was bland, waitstaff unfriendly, and their credit card machine was "broken" so we had to pay with cash. They also charge for the "dinner spectacle" show. Avoid this tourist trap at all cost.

I see that there is another place that is called "Al Fassia" but we went to this one "Restaurant al Fassia" and we were in one of the two tour groups there. The decor was lovely, the service good, the entertainment appealed to the group and the food enjoyable.

Like the Riad round the corner that sent us here, the restaurant is very beautiful. Very good service, friendly, helpful waiters. Starters were substantial and delicious. Tagine/couscous combo later in our holiday became tedious, but this was one of the better ones. Entertaining Toureg and Berber floor show although 2 belly dancers seems one too many. The musicians were superb... More

We ate here after an extremely hard walk thru the old city The atmosphere was great, the service fast and very courteous and the local dishes they served were out of this world. Really a super place to go and enjoy

Great atmosphere, very intimate. The prices were great, but for four people only order three meals. The service was excellent very family oriented. And clean. Three meals, two bottles of wine and two desserts came to 34/pp. U.S. One of the top two meals I had in Morocco.

Hands down this is best resto in Marrakech. We couldn't stop going there during our stay. Definitely try the roasted lamb shoulder with almonds for two. I only wish I could hang out in the kitchen and learn a thing or two from the sisters that run this place.

Fantastic food. We pre-ordered the slow cooked shoulder of lamb when we booked, and did not regret it -- even though we could not eat it all! Al Fassia deserves it's excellent reputation. The women who work there are wonderfully warm and welcoming. The food it fantastic, and, although not cheap, also not excessively priced. The wine list is good,... More
