Intimate setting

Very good Moroccan food in an intimate Moroccan setting. Chicken tangine with pumpkin was great. The mixed kabobs (chicken, beef, lamb) were good as well. Service was good.

The food ingredients and the meat is good but the quantity is very small given the high prices. The taste of pastilla is same as we've eaten in Fez on street side. Its the ambience and alcohol if you like it.

We booked dinner on the back of lots of positive reviews. Sadly, it was an average meal at best. There's no doubt this is an 'authentic' dining experience, but it ranks below all others I've had in Marrakesh thus far. The table we were seated on was small. Super small. We both sat on a sofa with a tiny round... More

We decided to dine out at Al Fassia after reading the reviews on trip advisor. This is an amazing traditional Morocco restaurant that we would have easily walked past if I had not found it on this website. It is tucked away in the new town in marrakesh. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated with good decor that gives a... More

I had an amazing lunch at al fassia situated in Gueliz district, btw it has two branches in Marrakesh, the other one is Aguedal. It is run entirely by women dressed in traditional berber costumes.The only exception is the door man.It serves different types of Tagine and cous cous , mixed kebabs and other Moroccan specialties. A must visit !... More

A lovely evening experiencing the best in Moroccan cuisine. You are served by delightful Moroccan ladies who run the restaurant. The starters are delicious and the tagines perfectly cooked. All at a reasonable price You will not be disappointed

I ate here for lunch and it was great. The food was yummy, and the atmosphere was relaxed yet sophisticated, but most importantly it was nice to have somewhere I could relax as a female solo traveller, as many (honestly most) other places in Marrakech are full of leering men. Being solely staffed by women, I felt like I could... More

Our Riad recommended this place as serving very traditional Moroccan food. The cab driver had a few issues trying to find the place so make sure you specify it is the one in the new part of town. Lovely little restaurant which was completely full so book early if you want to get a table. The pigeon pastilles was something... More

This is the only place you need to go to taste the real Morocco. We were told to go by locals because the food is like 'eating at your mothers house' - this was definitely true! It was so much better than the overpriced Moroccan food we had in other places and riads. The service is impeccable and great value... More
