We found this little cosy place by coincidence and was a total hit on the target. Family run with delicious morocan style food made you feel like at a friend's house. It's a really great experience to be served by someone who don't just like and enjoy his job but loves to make people appreciate the morocan hospitality. If ever... More

Good food in a quiet place. Nice service. However, the restaurant is not easy to find. Highly recommended.

Went on a Sunday night. Greeted by the friendly owner who gave us a good handshake. Arrived at 730pm and done within 90 mins. We were the only table during this time. Initially ordered 2 Moroccan soups, one couscous with chicken, and one grilled turkey with fries and salad. A few reviewers said they had wine but that wasn't available... More

Family owned restaurant. Best tagine and couscous we have had in Morocco. Very kind staff with great English skills. Fantastic get away from the busy and noisy souqs.

We came here twice on our trip to Marrakech, Once we called in mid afternoon and then at the end of a long day, the staff were great and the food was lovely (and not mega bucks like lots of other places). We had various salads and tagines which were freshly prepared, we know this as we could hear the... More

Having passed this restaurant every day but could not at the time find it on Trip Adviser, we eventually decided to give it a try as it offered the tagines we wanted. What a super find! Lovely romantic courtyard, decent soft jazz, heating (definitely needed at end of November).Excellent food - soup followed by tagines (melting lamb with prune) and... More

This restaurant offers good value. Food is good and well priced. Great crime brûlée. Main course and desert came to about 100 dirhams per person. Seems popular with tourists

We ate there twice. Good value for local food who also serve wine. A great plus. Hard to find along a narrow lane but we'll worth a visit.

We enjoyed our meal at Jama very much. It was the night of a severe storm and it was very cosy with all the candles lit. We had walked from our Riad. The food was great. We had a beef and a lamb tagine and a vegetable couscous. It was gorgeous. Hubby was slightly disappointed though as we had noticed... More
