Had a pretty special trip here. Stayed at a nearby Riad and they recommended this place to us. Difficult to find but incredible when you walk through the door into the open courtyard. We visited in the evening and the lighting and decoration based around the orange tree in the middle of the courtyard is spectacular. The staff wear long... More

Beautiful place and very good service but unfortunately the food doesn't reach up to the same standard. It doesn't taste bad but it doesn't taste much at all. For the price you would expect something much better. Had ten times tastier food for a tenth of the price at the local low key places around town.

Great wow factor as soon as you are through the door. Lovely candlelit courtyard with lemon trees and tables strewn with red rose petals. Beautiful first impression. Food and service excellent. Nice and close to our Riad too.

Great restaurant. Nice roof terrace for preprandial drinks. Ambiance of the whole place was excellent. Waiters in traditional attire - all attentive. Food mostly good, but our main courses were disappointing. My wife had a chicken tajine which was too salty and dry. I had a couscous that lacked flavour without the sauce. The vegetables were overcooked, and the whole... More

This restaurant was recommended by our riad and we were very surprised when entering the door. Inside was the most romantic and quiet place! Excellent service and excellent food and wine!

My wife and I ate here a few days ago with the recommendation coming from our riad. The room was terribly hot with an open fire burning and a patio heater on, we very uncomfortable with the heat. The food was terribly bland with no taste whatsoever and the vegetable were cooked to a pulp. It was also very expensive.

Really nice ambiance and the food was DELICIOUS. Best meal on my honeymoon in Marrakesh. (Oud gently playing in the background, candlelight and rose petals on every table...) Disagree with previous reviews that it's a tourist trap. Yes this is pricy relative to other nearby options, but the ambiance was well worth it. It's been 3 weeks since my visit... More

This is a nice restaurant in the middle of the medina where you walk through non touristic streets with peaceful locals. It's worth to visit because of this way.

We visited here twice during a week in marrakech, both times food was fantastic. The setting was perfect for us as it was literally right round the corner from our Riad, and exactly what we needed after a day of madness in the chaotic city. The roof terrace where we enjoyed a pre dinner drink was stunning, and so peaceful.... More
