Romantic, interesting and tremendous value for one the top ten rated dining spots in Marrakech. This is a three course Berber inspired menu cooked by Samira from ingredients that are the best of the day's markets.

This was a delightful experience in every respect - the setting, the food, the service.

Wonderful meal the best you'll have in Marrakech. Beautifully presented and served. Sourced and cooked by the talented Samira. Morrocan cuisine scrumptious. Selection of starters (3) with local breads, beautiful Tangine with artichokes and peas, followed by a delicate filo wrapped poached pear. Menu alters depending on the best produce at the market.
