Description: Our new restaurant, “Les Trois Saveurs”, which offers a choice of French, inventive Moroccan or Asian-inspired dishes. Our head chef, Didier Levy, was previously in charge of the kitchen at “Le Pavillon”, considered for many years the best French restaurant in Marrakech. Didier has a passion for seafood, which is bought fresh to the hotel from the coastal towns of Oualidia and Essaouira.The handmade teardrop-shaped lanterns at “Les Trois Saveurs” were specially designed for La Maison Arabe by Yahya Rouach; his workshop is producing the most refined metalwork in Morocco today.

Dinner here was a lovely experience. This is old style Marrakech, established in the 1940's there is an air of mystery about the place and would not have been surprised to find Rita Haywood and Orson Wells making a film noir! A beautiful atmospheric dining room filled and with old paintings, mirrors, lamps and objet d'art (loved the striped painted... More

This restaurant would have got 5 stars, but lost one because of the ending. So starting with the bad...I paid by credit card. As they could not put a tip on the card, I asked them to change some Moroccan money 'for the tip'. They changed it into high denominations so that I was forced to leave a 20% tip.... More

Within the walled city centre about 5 mins walk from Bab Doukkala gate, this mansion is a big place. The African themed piano bar is in the basement and serves fairly expensive but mediocre (by London bar standards) cocktails, but by very friendly and knowledgable staff so you forgive them. However, you do get given olives, nuts and pastries with... More

My partner and I entered La Maison Arabe down a dark alley lit by lanterns, upon entering we approached a reception that took our names and then escorted us to a bar area where there was pianist. The waiters were very friendly and full of banter, not to mention the Mojito & Margariita cocktails - excellent! The setting in the... More

This wonderful hotel and restaurant is completely inviting in every way! The decor is simple, beautiful, and relaxing. The staff is prompt, professional, and courteous! The food is tasty, and beautifully presented with excellent choices. It feels more expensive than it is! Great value for money!

The warm welcome was really the only worthwhile point of the visit. The cocktail bar could be in any international hotel. Hilariously awful pianist, facing the wall....? The bar staff applauding the end of each number furiously.....vastly overpriced drinks......limited menu to choose from of the usual cous cous and tagines dressed up to sound special. The restaurant itself is ok... More

When fellow travellers told us of their day at the Maison Arabe cooking school (in the countrysie) we assumed that the food in the city establishement must be good - we were wrong. The decor is charming and its worth a visit and a quick cocktail at the bar, which is much smaller than it looks in photos but the... More

We had an unexpectedly amazing meal here. The food was excellent (the bastilla was exceptional), our server was was friendly and funny, and the setting is gorgeous (outdoor courtyard around a pool -- very romantic). Highly recommended.

We read a review that this place was good for lunch. It's a nice setting, and has good service, but the menu is basically the odd sandwich. Fine for us, but we weren;t too hungry. We were though shocked with the bill which was £30 for 2 sandwiches and 4 diet cokes. OK if your're in the area and are... More
