This place was very quiet when we came in, just another table with a family on it, but it started to fill up after we arrived. I enjoyed the food and the service, however one thing that put me off was the table with the family came and changed their babies nappy on a table right near us! I couldn't... More

Visited with my sister, wife, and 2 yr old on a family holiday. Food was seriously good. Had sea bass tar tear that was incredible, followed by a perfectly cooked sirloin and simply the most perfect 72% chocolate fondant I've ever had. Staff were lovely, Wine was lovely. Food was amazing. And very good with the baby.

This restaurant is amazing, one of the better ones in Marrakech. Just had a great steak and the best teramisu I ever had. Worth one or twice visits.

We searched on TripAdvisor for a nice restaurant for dinner and came across Amaia. The reviews certainly lived up to its experience. The owner (I presume he was the owner) warmly greeted us and sat us at a cosy table by the window. There was a wide variety of food available catering for all needs. We selected some wine to...

Thank you for your post and to recommand Amaia. I'm sorry for your friend, our salmon tagliatelle are made with homemade pasta, fresh salmon, cream sauce and tarragon. May be is it the tarragon flavor? You should have told us about your disappointment, we would have change the plate. Kind regards. E. Garozzo More

Upon entry of the restaurant, my partner & I were warmly welcomed by the owner who found us a table for two promtly. Dinner & Wine menus were provided and there was a wealth of dining options, ranging from International dishes (Burgers, Spaghetti, Carbonara) to the most desirable local cuisines (Tajine). Travelling from the UK, it was difficult to find... More

Terrific food! Had a family dinner here - everything we ate was superb and cooked to the standard of a great French restaurant. A bit pricey (ca 500 dh per person with wine) but worth it. The manager - who has roots in Italy and Algeria - is a cultured man with great knowledge of food and of Marrakesh. Ask... More

We had a lovely dinner here. The food is really good and the place has a very warm, intimate ambience. Very attentive and pleasant service. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but we were not disappointed. Highly recommended!

Superb experience from start to finish. Owner Eric (from Sicily, not French as others have suggested) really knows how to run a restaurant. Eclectic menu - all of it sounds great! Really pleasant ambience - could be anywhere in the world! Wish I'd found this restaurant earlier in my visit to Marrakech!
