This place is heavenly; the decor, the service, the mysterious backstreet location - it's an enchanting and cultural feast. From the (harmless) snake on the rooftop veranda, with a view over the city, to the beautiful and lofty traditional square where you dine... it's glorious. The food is... read more

Eating here is truly an amazing experiance. The interior is amazing and the service is very good. Also we enjoyed the food and unlike in the other reviews, we didn't think the portions were too big (just leave the bread alone and you'll be fine). The only thing we didn't like was that we felt rather rushed with the three... More

We enjoyed Le "petit diner". You can choose from three sizes of the menu, ranging from 350 to 550dh, which gives you 1, 2 or 3 main courses. The rest stays the same. Aperitif and half a bottle of wine is included in the price. The ambience and the service is truly five star as well. Just the way there... More

We arrived at the most beautiful house after navigating down the side streets. The food was spectacular, the chicken tagine had the most delicious, rich sauce and it more than beat our expectations. By far the best meal in Morocco so far! Fantastic service, the most romantic setting and extremely reasonably priced (£60 for 2 including all our drinks).

You find the large wooden door to this riad/restaurant after walking down some dark, quiet alley ways. It took them a while to answer the knocker and it was only the jostick burning outside that indicated they were open. We had no reservation but we asked to see the menu. What a surprise when you enter this place with its... More

Beautiful location, perfect service, good food. Hidden in a small road it is a perfect choice for a dinner out of chaos of Marrakesh.

We had heard how good this was from tripadvisor, and weren't disappointed. It was one of my highlights of Morroco, and I would recommend it to everyone. After going down windy streets to a small door, we thought we were in the wrong place (!) but as soon as you go in it's like entering a private palace. What a... More

The building is over 400 years old and we were shown around the upper floors and roof terrace, before taking a table in the central courtyard. The Sultan of Morocco dined here some time ago according to antique newspapers proudly framed around us. The service and food were excellent. The set menu included wine or drinks of your choice which... More

The ambience, the service, the moroccan salad and the desserts were to die for. Like going back in time or being in the movies, which ever one fits your bill. The main courses, a pie and a couscous were not up to par, but I still recommend the restaurant, especially if you book early enough to be seated in the... More

As mentioned by other reviewers, it is not very easy to find this place, but well worth the effort! Our taxi driver took us down windy streets and we were met by the famous Mr Red Cloak, who escorted us down the narrow alleyways to the restaurant. Ksar Es Saoussan is just beautiful, exquisite furnishings, tasteful decorations and you really... More
