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... read 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

Ended up here on my last night, loved it. Wonderful atmosphere, would be ideal for a romantic evening. Went for the petite dinner, which at the time of writing was 350dh including wine and an aperitif (port for me since you ask). Petite dinner? I was waddling by the time I left! Salad marrocaine came as eight separate dishes, vegetarian... More

We found the entrance down some unprepossessing alleys, and entered through the wooden door, and were immediately shown up to the roof, which was all ours while we watched a beautiful sunset. A drink would have been lovely but nobody came to offer us one. After sunset we went down and were shown to a table where we had an... More

We had a great evening here last night. We chose the first menu and there was plenty of food! The Moroccan red wine from casablanca was very good as well. The atmosphere was relaxed and romantic and the service absolutely perfect.

Very authentic morrocan food and very good service.We were met by a very nice man at the end of the road to the restaurant who guided us there as it isn't easy to find.

We found out about this RIAD / Restaurant on TripAdvisor and gave it a try. This place is VERY hard to find. Don't be put off, and don't be afraid of venturing down a few un-named passages! The menu was a set menu, with 3 choices - which simply relate to the number of courses & dishes - they are... More

The food was excellent and we dined in a very nice atmosphere. The staff is very helpful and the wines were decent. We come from a "finish your plate" household and avoid to throw food away. Therefore we were pity that we could not finish the large portions (not even close) and over-ate ourselves a little.. Maybe decrease the portions... More
