Not to bad

Food was good, with a good variety. Could get expensive - Morrocan menu and French menu. Rooftop setting was fantastic!

Dinner at La Foundouk is about the experience, not necessarily about the food. The food was okay (Moroccan and International menus) and the service was pleasant and attentive. But it's really about getting to/from the restaurant via the lantern carrying escorts, walking through the winding alleys, and then entering the totally charming, spacious, traditional Moroccan setting. I would give the... More

We had a magical dinner at this restaurant. We ate on the roof deck, where on a beautiful night you look out to the mountains, and feel the enchantment of a Moroccan dinner on a warm and seductive evening. Getting to and from the restaurant is an experience out of the Arabian nights. The food was delicious, the service impeccable,... More

I didn't get this place. I found it very irritating. The wine waitress came first before we could pick our meals, then we waited quite a while and were given the first course menu on a scroll which kept re-winding when reading in the low lighting (about 6 inches square). The scrolls appeared for each course, different ones for each... More

A bit hard to find, had use of the Tripadvisor GPS (although it doesn't work that well in Marrakech). The briouttes with maroccan salads were excellent while the cous cous was ok but nothing special. Good service and beautiful interior.

This place really is awful. Magnificent surroundings, but staff who haven't a clue, and execrable food. Seldom seen such promise so squandered. Our dinner, April 2015, was scarcely edible: three main courses, fish and meat, of such poor quality ingredients and cooking that we barely ate. As for the staff - of whom there are many - they were far... More

Surprised that something that unique was tucked in that medina environment. We enjoyed ourselves and service was prompt and our security was ensured .

Found myself here on the recommendation of friends and locals, a brilliant and beautiful restaurant that gave me and my partner a perfect reason to dress up and feel fancy. I would advise to eat on the ground or first floor as unfortunately the roof top terrace where the staff advise all people to eat if there is space, is... More

The cuisine here is a mix of French and North African. It's wonderful, well priced and the service is excellent. It's a great people watching venue. If you try to find it via the souks, it's a challenge but an exciting venture for all that. It was the best place we found to eat within the medina.

The food was great, both French and Moroccan choices with some fusion of the two. The ambience is wonderful. The staff are good, could be better, but no reason not to go.
