I went to this lovely little restaurant with my parents. It was well decorated and had a relaxing atmosphere. The owner was friendly and attentive. We had a beef tartare, phuket chicken salad, a lemon bass tartare and prawn cake tapas. All were absolutely delicious! The price were great too. Highly recommended.

TowardsTowards the end of our 13 day Kaleidoscope tour of Morocco, when Tagine and Couscous are clearly offered at every lunch and dinner meal, we needed to savor flavors that we frankly missed from home. After reading our fellow Tripadvisor reviews, Amaia Restaurant quickly stood out. Within walking distance from our hotel, we ventured out. The street location were a... More

My sister and I went one evening to this lovely restaurant and both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I had a really beautiful salad as a starter, and the steak I chose for main course was also very good (cooked slightly more than I would have liked but I'm sure that was my fault as I do not speak any French...

The dinner was outstanding. I had the duck and it was great. Very tender and flavorful. Good place to go to... More

It is a small place with a nice vibe. The owner was really friendly. The best thing however was the food which was excellent. We were three together and everyone was really happy with their meal. The prices are also not bad at all. Highly recommended.

We found this gem of a restaurant after a 2 week trip touring all of Morocco, and it was one of our favorites. 50dhs taxi ride from Jemma to Guiliez, location is very easy to find just down the street from the post office. We made a reservation (although it's probably not necessary unless it's a Saturday night) and the... More

Dear NorthernTringDweller; Thank you for your complete & pleasant comment about restaurant....except the location...The center of Marrakesh is growing so fast! Your starter was a moroccan speciality named brewates: fried pastry filled with chicken (triangles) & beef (rolls). Very tasty! Our burgers are cooked with 150g of 0%fat beef meat & good bread; Thanks to my childhood friend from Greenwich.... More
