We stumbled across Chez Mado while looking for another restaurant. They told us that they were fully booked. As we didn't want to have a long drawn out meal they accommodated us. Overall the restaurant was very nice and it had a nice ambiance, We had the fillet steak. Only thing I didn't like was that they chose our glasses... More

Went back after our good experience last year. Of course everything on the menu is not always available as reported in many reviews but it's for your own good. Moroccan special oysters were very good and fresh, veal chop cooked perfectly and so on. Quite reasonable price as well: 700 dirhams for 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 glasses of... More

We went there yesterday for dinner for the first time and overall I found this to be a really good restaurant with an imaginative menu, very well prepared food and nice service. My guest and I had chosen different dishes and they were all good. The ambiance is pleasant and the only thing that would put me off going again... More

Really enjoyable food and the plaice to go for fish! Went there on two of our four nights in Marrakech. Sat outside with an open roofed area. Restaurant looks closed on the outside a bit like a speakeasy,doorman and curtain on the way in. Very friendly and excellent French fish dishes. If you love fish go there! If you don't... More

If you like great sea food in a charming dining room, this is a great restaurant to eat at. My partner and I ate here last Tuesday. It is a personalized and cozy family owned restaurant. The wood used for the tables give warmth to the whole place. I like salad Mado and the spider crab was wonderful and plenty... More

Excellent seafood and very good value. We shared a small seafood plate between 3 (2 adults and 1 child) to start, and just wow! Looked and tasted amazing, and was much larger than expected. Mains were also delicious, we had the scallops, sea bass and crab ravioli. Desserts were huge! Service was very attentive (although very little english was spoken)... More

Do not blink when you arrive at this restaurant or you'll miss it! A tiny front door behind a curtain opens to reveal a modern, bistro-style restaurant with a few outside tables. Despite previous reviews, the owner and front-of-house manager does speak decent English and the menu is available in both French and English so no excuse for not knowing... More

We went to this restaurant as it is so highly regarded on Trip advisor, we both really wanted to have lobster. We arrived and no lobster and numerous other menu items were not available either. We shared oysters which only one of the four choices were available and the oysters were beautiful, from there it goes down hill. If you... More

This was our first time at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. They have one of the best selections of fish and seafood dishes that you will find in Marrakech. Having witnessed the arrival of some spider crabs we can also attest to the freshness of the ingredients. Although the choice of meat dishes is more limited, all that... More
