We were a group of 12 having dinner together and everything was very good. The setting is fantastic, the quality of the food and drink is excellent, the service very friendly if not charming - I ordered a coffee and a cognac and got two glasses of Grand Marnier...

We had a fixed menu. Somewhat difficulties in corresponding in English. The salad was beautifully served on a several-level dish, the cous cous was the best cous cous we ever had. A group of 12 we received large plates in the middle of the table and could taste from all the dishes which was great. I would love to come... More

We went here in December 2014. Overall, this is the best restaurant experience we had in Marrakech, and I would definitely return. I highly recommend it to others looking for something that "feels" local (though, I admit, it was all tourists eating here). The riad itself is very hard to find (even compared with other riads in Marrakech...). Though, like... More

Pascal at our Riad recommended Ksar Es Saoussan, he told us we would be treated like princesses and he was right. This is someones home as well as a restaurant and we were invited to look around at this beautiful building before being seated for our meal, the menu was fixed price with limited choice but served beautifully and thoroughly...

It's hard to find restaurants that serve Moroccan food similar to what you would eat in a Moroccan home, but this was a very pleasant surprise. The fixe prixe menu made me nervous at first but everything was excellent and the small menu was more than enough. If you want to eat very good, authentic Moroccan food - go here.

The restaurant is set in a lovely courtyard with a wee fountain as the centrepiece. You even get a tour of the upper floor and rooftop before you dine which was nice. The service was incredible, very friendly staff and they walked us to and from the restaurant to save us from the maze of alleys! The overall experience is... More

We are a family of 5, but 3 young kids. We wanted to do something different on the night as the hustle of Jemma El Fna was too much for us as a young family. This was a great choice and we only found out about it from baedekers guide book. It's certainly tucked away but everything from the cloaked... More

We sort out the restaurant by day but there was no need as when we arrived outside the maze of alleys that lead to the restaurant, there was a "greeter" who guide us. The atmosphere was pleasant and the tables were set around to central courtyard. The service was professional and attentive. Wine was reasonably priced and the menu was... More

It certainly isn't easy to find. We walked past the little lane to it twice but we were so pleased we persevered. It's a lovely setting. We were encouraged to look around the house which was lovely with a great open roof which you could walk round and see the rest of the medina from. The food was a set... More
