I've never had an experience like this. You walk into the entrance past what must be 20 men on horses. They either want money for their photo or they will turn their head the other direction. You enter the grounds and walk past groups of what are supposed to be happy Moroccans who are the actors in the nightly dinner... More

This is an enormous place with hundreds of people eating and watching the show. If you have your picture taken with one of the mounted guards at the entrance he will demand money (but not surprising in Morocco) Each party is allocated a dining tent and, whilst food is served, various entertainers drift through - all looking rather bored!

We were taken to the place in the Medina by tour guide. The building and decoration was traditional which was very interesting, but the place was incredibly hot with no air con or fans and a number of us were bitten by mosquitos. There were musicians playing throughout the meal which was pretty repetitive then there was a dance troupe... More

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. Desert was apples or oranges and 1 small biscuit. The entertainers who came into tent looked bored,... More

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.
