We chose to go here for a proper meal rather than the cheaper but more stressful option of eating somewhere on the Jemaa El Fna, the interior of this place is stunning, classical Arabic decoration, marble fountains and a small swimming pool in the centre of a courtyard surrounded by orange trees and other plants, this is the place to...

Go early and sit by the pool. Our favorite was the veal tajine four seasons/flavours, which had sesame, apricot, prune and walnut. Delicious doesn't even begin to describe it. A bit pricy, but worth the splurge once.

This is a beautiful setting for an evening meal. The lamb tagine was delicious and the wine was good. The only thing that let it down for me was a disappointing dessert (Moroccan pastries) but that's personal taste. The staff were extremely polite and welcoming. Our group of 7 enjoyed the evening and the ambience very much.

Traditional Moroccan cuisine, tagines and salads, served in a beautiful dining room round a spectacular courtyard. The service was excellent and attentive. It wasn't the cheapest meal we had, around £20 a head with a half bottle of rose, but it was beautifully cooked and presented. Would recommend d and return.

This was our local restaurant when we stayed in Marrakesh and they served excellent food with great service. As most restaurants they also served alcohol with an extensive list. Highly recommended.

The place is beautiful and service was superb. And the food.....it was delicious. We stayed in Marrakech 4 days and only ate Moroccan food. By far this place had the best. Prices are reasonable and the whole experience was great. The lamb tajine with peas and artichokes was cooked to perfection. Do not miss it!

This restaurant and hotel rivals some of the palace tourist attractions. Wonderful mosiac tiling throughout. Intricate paster carvings. We sat by the pool in the riad courtyard feeling like little princes and princesses. One waiter can made or break your meal. Ours was both attentive, charming and efficient. The food was presented extremely well with a Nicoise style salad intricately... More

This is one of the few restaurants that we found served wine with our dinner - and good wine at that!! Its part of a hotel but the restaurant is open to all. We stumbled across it as it was close by and it was raining in Marrakech so we didn't want to travel far. Subsequently, we realised that we... More
