If you like your Indian food this is far from good. Ordered starters and had to leave. The plus side the ambience is beautiful as it's the hotels roof top terrace which also happens to have a pool and views of the Medina and markets. Quite a disappointment as I was looking forward to eating here.

I recently revisited this restaurant after a long time with my brother and his family as the kids wanted a curry. It is still a very good option when you feel like something different in Marrakech. Of course it's not the same as a "British curry" but then why on earth would it be? The flavours are all there and... More

We went there for our last meal before we left Marrakech. It was the worst meal we ever had. The place is lovely and the staff were very pleasant. But the food was simply horrible. We have travelled all over the world and have eaten in all sort of places but this was just disgusting. We wanted an indian meal... More

What a find this hotel was. Right adjacent to our Riad (Hasna Espi) and accessed by a private door from our roof terrace too! Situated within a beautiful hotel complex fronting onto a street a few streets up from our Riad, the restaurant, although lacking a little character, served beautifully presented and very reasonable European fare which we sampled for...

We had a lovely meal here. The food is very high quality, akin to a good Indian restaurant in the UK, and it was nice to see things like proper samosas, rather than the cheap filo pastry alternatives you see so often. The restaurant has a quality feel to it and the service was very attentive. While it wasn't particularly... More

This restaurant is in a lovely setting and you have lovely views over the courtyard. The service is excellent and the food is lovely. The portions aren't massive but we were satisfied if not stuffed. For about £55 for the two of us we thought it was reasonable value and we would definitely return. The piano bar downstairs is also... More

Returning here was magical. A truely enchanting place to spend an evening, with great food too. Enter via the hotel and if it's warm enough (wasn't when we were there) sit outside with views over the Katouba. Would love to go back for a dip in the pool.
