I was really enthusiastic to visit this place. When I arrived there was only one lady waiting for her lunch. I ordered mine and waited a bit for the drink. 10/15 minutes later two guys came in and after about 15 minutes a group of four. Both had their meal before a girl who was there as a volunteer noticed... More

Lovely welcome, nice food - also run by a ladies co-operative (charity) so by going there you will be helping support them. They are shut during August but will re-open in September. When we went they were happy to explain how the charity worked & took us on a tour which included Berber singing from the ladies in the kitchen... More

We signed up for a cooking morning in June and what a wonderful experience. All the staff were so friendly and just such a lovely concept. Our tagine was superb, perhaps because we had experienced the whole making of it with help from the staff. A very worthwhile organisation and keep up the good work.

We went here for a cooking lesson (4 of us, 2 mums and 2 daughters) and it was probably the best thing we did throughout our entire trip. The centre has a really positive atmosphere and are very welcoming. We cooked one beef and one chicken tagine which were by far the best food we had in Marrakech. The courtyard... More

We were there for a lunch. The idea of this place is great and we really liked it :) The staff was very nice and the food was tasty. But there was not to much to eat on the plates and we were still little hungry after lunch. And this place doesn't have the maroccan atmosphere.

While in Marrakesh we went here for lunch three times. The food here was excellent with a different menu every day. There was a choice of Moroccan and European food and the service was brilliant. This is a great organisation helping women in the community.

We had both a main course and dessert, and the food was fantastic. Surprisingly inexpensive for such generous portions!

A calm and welcoming place to have lunch. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing especially the pastilla fruits de mer. Just delicious! A great cause and I would recommend this place to anybody. Keep up the excellent work. Thank you for a great visit.
