Al Fassia is a super popular restaurant in the new part of Marrakech, Gueliz. A mix of tourist and, yes, true, local maroccans. Usually Moroccan do not like to go out to eat local food, but Al Fassia is a one of really few places where I have seen a mix of local and tourists. Food is goo, very... read more

Was recommended to dine at this traditional Moroccan restaurant and did not disappoint. The good was great, especially the little salad starters - all with a distinct taste. The portions were huge. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Traditional Moroccan restaurant run by women only. Premium interior but cosy atmosphere . All starters are very tasty . I strongly recommend you to have ''lamb shoulder'' which is signature for the restaurant. However you need to make your reservation and order your lamb shoulder at least two days beforehand. One of the most enjoyable restaurant in Marrakesh .

I really love this place and come here every time I visit Marrakech. The restaurant is staffed exclusively by women. The food is always of a really high quality although it's pricey so I only come here for a splurge. Try the Morroccan salad as a starter, you get 15 little dishes almost like a kind of tapas which you... More

This was by far the best meal we had in Marrakech. The food was well cooked and full of flavour - traditional dishes done well. The only downside was it was lunchtime and the portion sizes were so large we couldn't finish our dishes! The decor was modern and there was a relaxed ambience. I would definitely return. Be carful... More

I was visiting Marrakech from Ireland. I ate here with my two sisters and mother at the end of March this year after reading many good reviews about it and it was phenomenal. Great, friendly and female (the best kind) waitresses. My sister pre ordered the steak which they slow cook and it was delicious. We then got many tapas... More

Announced as one of the leading restaurants in Marrakesh Al Fassia turnef out to be a disappointment. The menue was hardly any different from the thousamds of other restaurant in Morocco: Tajines and Couscous, house specialties had to be ordred 24 hours in advance and service was slow and complacent. The food badically was good, especially the vegetarian starters snd... More

The restaurant is run entirely by women - not a common occurrence in the Arab world. And, not surprisingly, it's terrific. Try the salads, the quail pastille and the chicken tagine

On our first night in Marrakech we went to AL FASSIA in Guilez (www.alfassia.com) which was just around the corner from our hotel, went in at 19:00 when it opened to have a look and to book a table, it was empty, went back at 20:30 for our booking, our table was the only one left, the place was buzzing...

This really is an institution and well worth a visit during any visit to Marrakesh. There is more than one branch but the one to go to is in the Guelliz. I have been here several times over many years and was delighted to find that it's still just as good as I remember. The interior is evocative. The service... More
