Very average, certainly for the price

This restaurant in the super-luxe Palais Amani riad is very underwhelming. The menu offered a fresh take on Moroccan cuisine, but the fresh take involved the usual food with fancy presentation (read: cooked but not served in the tagine).

So so food and very expensive food. We ordered 3 dishes and 2 water and cost us 615 mad. The water is 45 mad each bottle. Environment is nice but it is not worthy it.

Although you obviously enjoyed your time with us and found the exquisitely restored palace a wonderful environment to be in we are sorry you found the menu and wine list prices perhaps not up to your expectations. As all is clearly priced on the à la carte and daily set menus, on the drinks list both in the restaurant but... More

The chef was most accommodating in that I asked for grilled fish with lemon butter sauce and rice - something that was not on the menu. In fact, it was so delicious I had fish every night after that. Simple, fresh and always beautifully presented. The chocolate dessert on my last evening was exceptional!

In the middle of the Palais Amani garden courtyard, next to the fountain, we enjoyed a secluded dinner amidst the intricate tile work. Dining was available indoors as well, but the weather was clear and the courtyard near the fountain offered a cool, refreshing atmosphere after a day touring the City. The menu offers a wide variety of European and... More

We stayed at Palais Amani. Best hotel. The food was so good the first night, my kids loved it, we ate there every night and regretted eating at another Palais one night. The food was fresh and so flavorful. Chef Laaissairi is so great and so nice. The fish of the day was my personal favorite. Every night a new... More

Both the food and wine were first class. After a week or so, eating in Morocco - we were getting a little tired of tagines, so it was great to get something else. The service was also first class.
