It's located on a small street leading to the Jemaa square. Pick the upper terrace, which overlooks the roofs and provides a glimpse into the souks. Can be cool at night; cozy with few tables. Food was very good -- we had lamb brochettes, and great local french fries. If the Arabic music on the sound system sounds a bit... More

Nice little restaurant, very reasonably priced. Their bricks are great, and the pigeon pastilla is an absolute must! The staff is very friendly and there is live music at night. It's favoured by French tourists, and you will generally not see any locals. Asking our Moroccan friends though, they confirmed the food is excellent! The set menus are cheaper for... More

Loved the fact that the roof slid across and formed a terrace and that there were mist fans all over the restaurant. Were given complimentary bread and olives, and the food was very good. We walked past every day twice for 6 days and became very friendly with Abdoul one of the waiters, who was trying to make us eat... More

Live music, candles and water spray to cool you all add to the lovely ambience of this restaurant. The food was delicious and an absolute snip too. The lamb tagine was authentic and so tasty. Large portions along with complimentary bread and olives means there just enough room to sip on mint tea and Morrocan pastries after. Would definitely recommend-... More

My wife and I have been eating at many of the restaurants around the medina, and Chez Brahim had the best atmosphere. We ate there for dinner and during the meal, 2 men played and sang traditional Moroccan music. We ordered lemon chicken tagine with lemon and chicken couscous. Very large servings, bread-olives-spicy dipping sauce and dessert. The food is... More

I had lunch here on my final day in Marrakech. Restaurant was fairly busy but service was quick. I had the Moroccan Soup followed by Vegetarian Pastilla. Both were freshly made and very tasty. For desert I had the 'caramel flan' which turned out to be something like crème caramel but was still very nice. prices are good, toilets are... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is great with water fountains and live music band. My food was great: I had the local Moroccan soup and an aubergine salad which was very tasty. On the other hand: My boyfriend had a tagine which was very greasy and not very tasty. He wasn't very happy and ended up eating from my plate.

Noticed their "Trip Advisor" sign so thought we would give it a try but was very disaapointed. We had a set menu in the evening which consisted of luke warm tasteless soup, pastillas - nice and a dessert of a few slices of orange with cinammon sprinkled over. It would have been better to have just had the main course.
