My husband and I had dinner here. We had reservations and were greeted at the entrance and let into the garden. We were directed to sit at a dirty wine stained table when we went up to the bar because all of the tables were dirty before it being cleaned and our drink order taken. I was not too happy... More

The location is not perfect as it is located at the end of the kasbah. However, food is excellent (at least what we got) and the service good.

This was only a short walk from where we were staying and we did not want to fight the crowds in the town centre. The restaurant is situated in the rear garden which is a lovely, interesting setting and not what you woulde expect from the front. Service was excellent as we ordered pre meal drinks while perusing the menu.... More

If this was just about the food, then it would be a 2* max but eating around the pool, with the very mellow strains of a live guitarist across the courtyard, brings out the romantic! Set in a beautiful, hidden city-centre Riad, the ambience and refinery is an absolute joy. The setting is literally perfect. The staff are attentive and... More

Dear Sir, Having read your comment, I can only wonder whether you may have confused the Jardins de la Medina with another establishment. Our menu offers 48 dishes ‘a la carte’ as well as 4 extra menus to satisfy all tastes and budgets Of these 48 dishes, about one third are Moroccan and there are only 5 couscous. Our menu... More

We came in for a romantic lunch before leaving Marrakech. What a beautiful setting right in the Medina of Marrakech. It's pretty amazing how luxurious the gardens are in the middle of this wonderful setting, the name of the restaurant is well deserved! It seems at least 10 degrees cooler, and the relaxing atmosphere overlooking the pool and the gardens... More

For our final evening in our 2-week-holiday in Morocco we decided to make our last dinner special. And we were brought by fate to Les Jardins de la Medina and the awesome experience still linger in our memory. First, the service from the very start to the very end was impeccable. Everything and everyone seemed to be so well-coordinated that... More

Great food and service if a bit on the pricey side. Not a good place for families or youngish girls as you have to get down some pretty rough streets to get anywhere. No problem if you are happy to use taxis they are reliable and fairly cheep

Loved it. Amazing food. I got duck and it was amazing. The atmosphere and decorations were so nice, reminded me of having a nice romantic dinner in the middle of a rainforest. Definitely recommend it!

You never know what is behind a closed door. What can I stay, as soon as the door opens you are blown away. We ate near the pool in the gardens, the tables are a good enough distance apart so you are not to close to other diners. The food was really tasty, my husband said the monk fish was... More
