After craving for Indian food what we got was an insult to traditional Indian food. We don't make Indian curry without salt and the hotel should understand that non spicy food doesn't equal salt less food. A waste of an evening in Marakesh

We stumbled upon this restaurant about half way through our stay in Marrakech which was ideal because we were eating local cuisine twice a day and wanted to freshen things up. It is located on top of a hotel not far from Central Square; you will notice its location because you will see a gentleman dressed in traditional Indian clothing... More

After 5 days in Marrakech and desperate to take a break from local cuisine, we were delighted to spot this restaurant claiming to offer an Indian fine dining experience. Tripadvisor reviews also looked promising, so we booked a table for the evening. The location was excellent - on the terrace of a good hotel (Not 5 star by international standards,... More

Beautiful hotel grounds, good service and lovely food. A little pricer than you would expect but a great restaurant!

Maybe I did not know what ti expect, but as one who east Indian food a lot, this was a very good, but not 5 star restaurant. My food was good, but not exceptional, and the service was excellent. I am just not sure what makes everyone in Marrakech think this is the best place to eat.

Our Riad did a Google search so my wife and I could detox from our Moroccan diet (8 days of couscous & tajin). Les Jardins de Bala is situated on the roof of a 5 star hotel and makes a very good first impression. We ordered kebab (starter), which was decent and had a very good green mint sauce. Mains...

This restaurant had been recommended to friend in a group from one of the film crew from the next Mission Impossible film who have recently been filiming in Marrakesh and used this place regularly. It did not disappoint. I had a wonderful Papaya salad followed by King Prawn Tikka Marsala which was extremely tasty. The service is first class with... More

We ate at this lovely restaurant last night and felt it definitely deserved a mention. On the roof terrace of a 5* hotel the food certainly didn't disappoint. Our daughter was delighted that she could have an Indian starter and then a chinese main, my husband and I just stuck to curry. The staff were very friendly and the food... More

If you're looking for a change from tagine and cous cous I recommend here. The food was a really high standard and the setting was peaceful overlooking the koutoubia. The service was also lovely. We had a couple of cocktails in the hotel bar afterwards making it a really romantic evening.
