Marrakech is famous for its hustle and bustle, it's a game enjoy!, we were certainly hustled into this place by 'helpful' local!!, so it's a FAIR COP on us. Thine fixed price menu clearly states 400MAD per person and the wine was 400MAD both about twice what you would pay elsewhere.......we chose to stay and 'paid the price' (go see... More

Incredible location: a 16th century palace with patio within the medina. Rich food offers with typical Moroccan cuisine and background live music.

Strolled in of the street (they call them derbs here), and had a great three course lunch a la carte. A choice of twelve salads, all very tasty. Main courses were either beef tangia with vegetables or chicken pastilla. We had one of each and shared. Delicious! ! Dessert was a fresh fruit salad, very nice. With a mandatory mint... More

This restaurant is such a pretty find in quite an unglamourous area. The mosaic inside is really beautiful, nice seating arrangements with good spacing between the tables so you don`t get an earful of drivel from the next table. Our table was most near the centre fountain, directly under the open night sky. All very romantic. The evening service was... More

This place caters to tourists and only tourists. You can get a much better meal at a fraction of the price at almost any restaurant or cafe around the main square. We got led into this place by a tour guide which seems to be how most people end up here The waiters are surly and I suppose don't have... More

Perfect location to have a launch during shopping in Marrakech souq. Tasty food, but portions are not that large

Not much to say as it's a 100 % tourist place and it has nothing to do with Morrocaen food. Nice place but the menu offered are just not what you should expect from marocco. I felt shamed that people might think this restaurant represents the food of marocco.
