Lovely food and atmosphere

I had heard about al fassia Guilez on many blogs so had to visit on my trip to marrakech. I wasnt feeling very well on this day but managed to eat a lamb tagine with tomato and caramelized onions and it was delishious! We booked a table to 10pm but they ended up fitting us in at 9pm.

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

Marakech is loaded with tasty but repetitive versions of the local tanginess and meats. In this renowned restaurant owned and staffed only by women is a pigeon pie and slow cooked lamb shoulder that together represent the single best dining experience in Marrakech. It is essential to pre-order the lamb. The caramelised onions and raisins are a brilliant counterpoint to... More

Having dinner at Al Fassia is different. A restaurant by women - meal cooked by women and served by women. The food is excellent and the portions huge. I went there with a group of women from ADAMAS ADVENTURES FOR WOMEN and the group were not used to eating lots of food. But we had great fun as the women... More

We were struggling for places to eat and after a quick google on tripadvisor saw Al Fassia and liked the sound of the menu and good reviews so decided to visit. Unfortunately we were dissapointed. After trying the local tagines consisting of disintegrating veg we thought paying good money we should get served something decent. Unfortunately the vegetable tagine was... More

Lovely food with very friendly staff. This place is popular with locals and tourists and has a great reputation with good reason. I would go back and order the shoulder of lamb and the mixed salads as tablespoons us had these dishes and my mouth was watering.

We booked our table. I believe this would be essential as for any good restaurant. We shared the mixed salad starters. There was an assortment of 13 dishes and it was the ideal choice for us.. A perfect appetiser for our main meal. My partner had the meatball tajine and I had the lamb with caramelised onions tajine. Again...both tasty... More

Very hard to get in. My wife chose this restaurant and we went yesterday night, we got there on the dot at 19:30 when they were opening the doors for dinner. The hostess who was at the front door did not want to talk to us in any other language other than French (by the way between my wife and... More

We visited this place due to a recommendation for best traditional food and we were not disappointed. The place itself was beautiful, decorated in a Moroccan style. The service was great and the food was lovely. Would recommend to anyone looking to try good Moroccan food.

Real Moroccan food. Delicious and filling. Lovely service from the ladies. Beatiful surroundings. More pricey than other places but you get what you pay for. Would highly recommend.
