Like so many others, this restaurant was recommended by staff at our riad and did not disappoint.

We were escorted there through the narrow... More

This restaurant was recommended by staff at our Riad who said they wanted us to have a great impression of Marrakech's food.

Up for splashing a little more cash than normal for dinner in Marrakech? This pretty courtyard restaurant is a good call. The food is tasty, the table linen crisp and the service is excellent - there's even a belly dancer who appears throughout the night.

We went to this restaurant on recommendation from our Riad and we were not dissapointed. From the initial welcome to our leaving we were afforded top quality service, even escorted back to our Riad so we did not get lost. The food was brilliant and the atmosphere and ambience amazing.
