pretty good

A nice restaurant - classy at the beginning of the pedestrian street to the square (couscous - Tajine with mutton and chicken - cooked vegetables - fruit-sweet, tea). Definitely worth a visit.

In february 2013 I visited Marrakech with my friend. Sesame garden soon became our favorite restraunt and we ate there on several occasions. The food is marvellous and of a high quality, tasteful and delicious. The service is great and the live music unforgettable. The restraunt's got a lovely view over Djema El Fnaa. After our holiday had ended I... More

I when with my partner for a late evening meal, I was disappointed with the food and prices. You could get a much better meal on the market and 4 times cheaper, do not EAT there you'll regret it I DID!!!!

A nice restaurant out of the way but with a very,very pretty terrace. Definitely worth a visit. I had a lovely time there with friends for my birthday. Lovely food and all the waiters and staff were very friendly. Houssain who works on the door knows lots of places in Marrakesh if you want a good hammam and or cheap... More

Lovely restaurant owned by lovely people. I volunteered in morocco this summer and this restaurant opened during the day and let in homeless children which we played with and gave books and toys and they cooked food to feed them all, and played with a hose in the 50 degree heat! We went back in the evening and had food.... More

We found Sesame Garden by complete accident, we were actually looking for somewhere else but didn't realise we were on the wrong street and after walking up and down twice we finally succumb to those inviting us in, we were not disappointed. The restaurant is on a roof terrace with various seating areas, live music and candles and fairy lights... More

We have visited SESAME GARDEN during our 1st night in Marachesh and have had very nice meal - veggie salad & Tajines (both of very good quality). Local musician make our dinner even more special. We liked our dinner at Sesame Garden :-)

good food, and service, well made and presented! I would say very good! we were about 12 at our table and all got excellent food and service. Tajines and couscous met our expectations! The atmosphere inside the restaurant is elengant, and since it is on a covered terrace, there is the atmosphere of dining outside, and be away from the... More
