Would have loved to have tried this restaurant but anyone going on Mon/Tues and Wednesday of this week would have been disappointed. There was a notice on the door giving closing times for holidays but according to those dates they should have opened again on Tuesday but they did not. A bit of common courtesy wouldn't come amiss in that... More

Nice food but not outstanding. The pastilla was very good and the rest fine, except for the price. Two courses for a family of 4 came to £160 with 1 bottle of wine, no puddings or coffee. Other restaurants of a similar standard and charged approx. £25 with soft drinks. I left feeling that we had been 'ripped off'.

We dined at Al Fassia after it was recommended to us. Although we'd not booked, and it was extremely busy, we were found a table. The food we were served was absolutely delicious. My wife and I both ordered tagines, which were beautifully cooked and good in size. I would definitely eat there again.

This women owned and managed restaurant prepares the tastiest, unique and filling meals we had the whole three weeks in Morocco. From the soups to the appetizers, tagines and on, all was perfect. Don't miss this and be sure to make a reservation.

Was here with friends on a Saturday night in May. Service was prompt and they quickly added an extra chair as I had initially not planned to have dinner at all. We ordered brochettes, couscous and I had a pigeon pastille starter only (95dh). My Brazilian friends enjoyed their meal, but 4 skewers of kebab served on a bed of... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Al Fassia gave us a fine mix of Moroccan dishes and flavours delivered with fine service.

Despite all the good reviews on this restaurant our experience was not the best. The service was A little unfriendly and impersonal, the owner seemed uninterested and the food was just ok. Other diners in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying it though so perhaps it was just from our point of view.

We went to Al Fassia because I wanted to try the pigeon pastilla and this restaurant was recommended for this particular dish and also the lamb shoulder. So my husband and I kept it simple and order a pigeon pastilla each for staters and the lamb shoulder for 2 as main. it was excellent! The pastilla's pastry was crisp and... More

If, like us, you spend some time in Morocco, you will become something of a tagine connoisseur. My son decided that Al Fassia offered some of the best. Great food, lovely staff, atmospheric setting, good value... What more can I say. We'd be regulars - if we happened to live in Marrakesh. And in such a male-oriented country (though I... More
