Lovely food and ambiance

Went there on a recommendation of Said the petit cab driver. Me and my wife enjoyed a great meal, I had the mixed meat tajine which was super, and never seemed to end.. My wife had mixed kebab with saffron rice which she says was done perfectly. Great place for a romantic evening.

I am amazed at some of the negative comments about this restaurant, food and service were amazing. We are six ladies on a weekend in Marrakesh, this was our third evening and by far the best. Food was extremely tasty, and the waitresses couldn't do enough for us. Fantastic evening, would recommend to everyone.

Al Fassia is one- if not the best restaurant in Marrakech for Moroccan food. I have always gone to Al Fassia Gueliz but this time we were a larger group so Al Fassia Agdual suited better. The service was the best I have experienced In Marrakech; warm friendly and very professional, The food was superb. The whole evening had an... More

We were recommended this restaurant as having exceptional food, whilst the food was good it was not really any better than other restaurants we visited (Maison Arabe was better) The restaurant is apparently run and staff exclusively be women. Service was however a bit of a disappointment. I can only describe it as indifferent bordering on surly. The table layout... More

I had read about this restaurant and its supposedly specialty of pigeon 'pastilla' so despite some misgivings (#77 on TA) gave it a try on evening. My friend and i (who is Moroccan) had no reservation but was grudgingly shown to a a very small table that was weirdly too close to two other tables. We were very uncomfortable where... More

The Concierge at our hotel recommended this authentic Moroccan women's cooperative restaurant to us. We dined at Al Fassia Gueliz for dinner. We were greeted by a lovely bubbly lady who took an instant shine to my husband! Being vegetarians was not a problem. We were soon recommended several suitable dishes. As a starter we shared all the vegetarian salad... More

Everbody seem to lika Al Fassia and so did we! The settings are real cozy and the food is very good, although one of our dishes (different sorts of meat with couscous) was unreasonably large (no one could possibly eat that much couscous...) - it just didn´t seem well-thought-out. The wine list contained some wines that were not to be... More

Although situated in the new part of town it is down a small alley and you are immediately transported back to old times. A very busy restaurant so booking advisable. We tried the recommended pulled shoulder of lamb, the dish serves more than two but we managed to plough our way through a large chunk of it, especially as it... More

This restaurant is in all the guide books but it was also recommended by friends. All female staff which makes it unusual, and the meal was excellent. A good selection of local dishes well cooked. Quite expensive by Marrakech standards but very reasonable when compared with English prices.

These ladies really know what they are doing. Their tried and trusted formula of top quality local food, served in substantial portions with excellent accompaniments is a great pleasure. We returned 3 years after our first visits to find absolutely consistent service and quality. The confident, all female, front of house team are a pleasure to see in action. The... More
