Retreat for a drink in Medina!

We were so tired of donkeys and bargaining traders, so we were just blessed to see this big red entrance with a concierge on the left when entering the Jemaa el-Fna square – you cannot miss it! Found a bar with the pool and the view of Koutoubia Mosque. Service is 5* and prices are acceptable... read more

So after a few days experiencing the nice but bland cooking in marrakesh we sought out this Indian restaurant. Well what can I say about this place? Its a con just like the rest of marrakesh, its only after your money. Some savvy business owner has heard many a British tourist asking for a curry and so has decided to... More

We visited this restaurant twice during out stay in Marrakech, the first evening we visited the service was great - staff friendly and welcoming - especially the gentleman! The food was OK, we had chicken spring rolls to start, I had the chicken tandoori which was fine for the first few chunks - before I found some uncooked pieces.. However... More

Maybe our expectations were low and we had been craving indian food for a while. Regardless, I would definitely recommend this for a change from the tagines and cous cous. its on top of a luxury hotel and service was fantastic.

I feel ashamed of myself to be proud of Indian food after visiting this restaurant both in respect of hospitality as well as food preparation. The attitude of a lady whose name I was told as Ms Pascal was totally horrendous. How can someone serving you in a restaurant be so rude and throw attitude at you when you have... More

We went 3 times during our stay, always lovely food. ( Can't expect real tandoory stuff, they don't have the oven but give you a special sauce ). Impressive local wines, try the Sahari gres. Good service!

It was a lovely setting with good food. I wish the vegetarian choices were a bit more as we are vegetarians. We ordered mango and saffron korma which was great and quality of nans were good too.
