Very Good

I went there prior to Christmas in a large group and they had done a very nice job of making it look festive. The staff did very well to remember the individual orders. The food was very good, apart from my steak, which was slightly grisly. The meat was tender though. It was reasonably priced and... read more

Our tour group had its final dinner here organised by our tour leader. We found the food here good and at reasonable prices. The place was lively & quite cosy at the same time. Can recommend a visit to this Chez.

The restaurant at the front was empty but the bar/restaurant around the pool was busy and lively. The bar shows football matches and was lively and relaxed, alcoholic drinks were very reasonably priced. The food in the restaurant was delicious, the service efficient and friendly, and we generally had a relaxed and lovely meal.

I went here with my girlfriend for dinner. Despite the restaurant being empty, an ominous sign, it was excellent. Attentive service from the get go and a simple but tasty looking menu. I had the beef carpaccio for a starter and the sirloin steak for main. Both were delicious. My girlfriend had the chicken for her main and also said... More

Having eaten here several times earlier this year we were keen to return on this visit to Marrakech, we were not disappointed. The setting is lovely and we were able to sit outside by the small pool, very friendly and attentive service. The menu has a good range of choices from local Moroccan dishes to steaks and pizzas and the... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal at this fine eatery, would highly recommend. Two menus in one, a Fine French bill of fare and a nice selection of Moroccan favorites as well as an extensive wine list, icy cold draft local beer (pilsner) and a good selection of bottles as well as a full bar. Situated in the Le Caspian Hotel, the... More

Chez Joël is an incredibly cute and quaint French bistro in Gueliz. A very nice and welcomed break from tajine and cous cous. I had the beef filet which was good but not excellent. A little undercooked and not exactly teeming with flavor. My son had the penne with chicken which was delicious. They brought a high chair but failed... More

My girlfriend and I visited Chez Joel after looking for places off the main strip in Gueliz. It is a really intimate setting with modern decor. We are travelling on a little bit of a budget and were very surprised at how reasonable the prices were considering it would not look out of place in London's west end. The menu... More

A lovely menu, full of lots of different cuisines, but focusing mainly on French and Moroccan. The restaurant had a very classy feel and the food was absolutely superb. I would highly recommend the sole - and the seabass which my boyfriend had!! The cocktails were delicious as was the wine and the service from the staff throughout the evening... More
