I was recommended this restaurant by Moroccan friends . Very romantic atmosphere and amazing food, couscous was exceptional . Services was also very good. Don't worry about finding it there is a person that will guide you from the closest Main Street .

Our Riad recommended the Tobsil and we were not disappointed. Dishes are very authentic and plentiful. It's a set menu - no choices but no worries its all excellent. Wine is included and it's quite reasonable nit as others have suggested - its robust house wine and matches the food perfectly. Make sure you are hungary! A guide escorted us... More

Fairly pricey by Marrakech standards but very good and you get a lot of food for your money! It's a set menu and the price includes wine if you want it. We had olives and bread, lots of small plates of various spiced vegetables, tagine chicken with a pancake (sounds odd, tasted fantastic), lamb tagine with beautiful fluffy couscous and... More

Nice place with excellent Moroccan dishes. Set menu, lots of food. It’s hard to find if the host is not there waiting for you. Great atmosphere.

We had a wonderful diner experience at Le Tobsil. The restaurant is hidden in the tiny streets of the old city, and it would be impossible to find without the guardians strategically placed in the main street. The place is very warm, intimate and romantic. 2 musicians discreetly accompanied our diner with traditional music. Service was very professional, discreet and... More

The surroundings are stunning, and the food is delicious, if a little on the sweet side. But there is too much of it -- by such a large margin that it spoils the evening. The local musicians are a plus when playing gently in the background, but when they come up to your table the whole thing tips over into... More

Came here for last night in Marrakech. Traditional themed restaurant offers set menu of various salads with bread and lamb or chicken tagine. Traditional entertainment was very discrete and unobtrusive. Very small restaurant so you have to book in advance Staff not particularly friendly and probably expensive for what it is. Glad we went but wouldn't rush back.

Very traditional food, lovely place with Maroccan musicians playing enjoyable music. They serve 5 plates-menues including wine. Better reserve a table ahead, as it seems to be fully booked most evenings. Super-close to the riad El Fenn, only 2 min walk.
