The price is so reasonable that you wonder how they can survive! There was more staff and performers than customers the night we went, but it was well worth the trip to get there. The traditional fare was as good as anywhere else; the lamb, vegetables and appetizers were plentiful as always in Marrakech. A bit stingy with the cookies,... More

Food wasn't special. Better food in the Medina - Soup to start was tasty - Large half side of lamb OK, but it was fatty and too dark to see what you were getting - cuscous dish with chicken was bland and tasteless.

A good Moroccan style meal cooked in a turine. But the horse show after was well worth seeing. We travelled to and from the show by horse drawn carriage. There are literally hundreds of these in Marrakech.

Well worth experiencing. This was very busy with lots going on. Try to stay in well lit areas and take lots of photos as it's unlikely you will ever see anything like it elsewhere.

This is a place designed specifically for tourists. The highlight was watching the horse show. What these men can do on horses is quite remarkable. The food was just so-so. I find many of these experiences disheartening as it almost seems like tourists are exploiting the natives of the country.

The food was ordinary. The inside entertainment was some dancing and music which was presented by a group of locals that had limited talent. The outside show was so commericialized we left the show.

Very, very odd night! Food was ok, but entertainment was bizzare! Men on horseback racing down the field to only to stop and shoot a gun, entertainers walking round the field then walking off, not sure what the point was!!

It was a good night, but i'm a vegetarian and had chicken brought to me for my vegetarian meal. I had a bit of bread and plain cous cous for my meal that ended up being quite expensive. No drinks were added on to the evening until the end which were expensive.
