Was really expecting something very special after the recommendations on visiting this restaurant. But it failed to impress or deliver anything special enough to deserve the glowing reports. Yes, the place is what you would expect of a western standard restaurant. It's spotlessly clean, service is very good (except when you are ready to leave and pay the bill) and... More

Newer, modern restaurant with typical Moroccan dishes run by all women. The food was exceptional. Make reservations in advance. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here on our last evening in the city. Our Riad made our reservation the day before and managed to get us a table. We were advised the Resturant was very popular and only women worked there. The food was wonderful, the vegetarian starter was okay but nothing amazing. My other half had the meat parcels and they...

We ate here last night. Initially we were really impressed as they squeezed us in despite not booking and were incredibly busy. The main courses were delicious and authentic Moroccan cuisine. Then it went downhill and we waited about 30 mins for our plates to be cleared and another 20 for our dessert choices to be taken! Don't bother with... More

My husband and I usually like to eat "local" when we travel but always choose a "fancy" restaurant at each destination and Al Fassia was that for us in Marrakech after having read glowing reviews. We had the mezze of salads as the starter which consisted of 14 small vegetable dishes, followed by the lamb shoulder as the main. The... More

We dined here on the 10th October. Ask any of the locals of the best restaurant and Al fassia will come up time after time. Tucked away down a little corridor is an amazing restaurant with food to die for. The service is amazing and the chefs come out and speak to you, which is great. They are passionate about... More

We booked here on our first trip to Marrakech because the restaurant has been so highly recommended in so many guides. The food was fine but overpriced and not as good as we had been led to expect. Two out of three of us didn't finish our main course and none of the staff enquired whether there had been a... More

A great Moroccan restaurant that is real!! The all woman owner/managed/operated dining experience is friendly, tasty in nice Moroccan decor. Not a feeling of a "tourist trap".

This restaurant was very welcoming! The food was amazing - the soup was yummy and the lamb shoulder for two was perfect!!! Friendly staff where we felt at home. Very busy restaurant. But well worth a visit.

Cant really fault this place. Hearty, tasty tagines at very reasonable prices. This was our first experience of the Nouvelle Ville, after several days in town. Our host warned us off this part of town saying there was nothing of interest. I'd agree there is little of cultural interest, but if you want something a bit more salubrious for drinks... More
