Amazing experience

The street to the restaurant is a little dark and scary, but once you are inside the architecture and decor is amazing. There is a fixed menu of 350 DH which includes 3 courses, pastries, tea and wine. Positive: + Outstanding building and great atmosphere + Diverse, plentiful and very tasty... read more

Restaurant was beautiful with a prix fix menu including a bottle of wine! We were the only people there however, but the service was great. They even had someone come at the end of the meal to walk us back to our Riad!

The whole experience of this restaurant was incredible. We really didn't enjoy the food as it was very very traditional Moroccan food (just not to our taste) but that's ok we wanted to try it. When we arrived the building was sensational & is like a maze when walking through so many photos to take & things to look at.... More

An impressive home from the 16th century, hidden from all main streets, with a romantic rooftop. Best service ever and a really good dinner in an exotic atmosphere.

Just a wonderful full dinning experience. My five star rating reflects a comparison to Marrakech restaurants rather the world restaurants. As a world comparison and assuming the rating reflects a total dinning experience, I would give it 4 stars. The restaurant is in an historic home which is simply beautiful. We started our dinner with a walk through the home... More

From the promptness of the return of a late night e-mail booking request to being escorted after dinner back to the main square we found the service here impeccable - easily on par with many a Michelin restaurant (we were one of only three tables). Lovely setting, very romantic. Dinner is a very affordable affair (compared to European prices); pre-dinner... More

This restaurant, tucked away in a side alleyway off of the Jemaa el Fna plaza, offers a prix-fix, super fancy meal with included alcoholic drinks. The dishes were well made but not mind-bending.

Very hard to find but once you're there it's excellent... The restaurant is an old house 1700's and very beautiful. Just go there hungry... With the small menu you can feed a village in Somalia. (35 euro the small menu)

Got wind of this place from a Moroccan expat's foodie blog and decided to give it a go. Rather pricey by Marrakech standards, but I would say it's worth it - the restaurant is in a sumptuously restored riad, and service is impeccable. The menus cover staples such as bastila, couscous and tajine prepared to a degree of refinement a... More

What a great and amazing surprise this place was. The reviews underrate what this restaurant is. We tried to follow the map in tripadvisor but it was deceiving, because of the tricky narrow hidden streets of this city. When we were almost giving up, a local person guided us to the restaurant. When we got there we stumbled to a... More
