The place is very nice so we were expecting the food to be at least decent (also considering that prices are quite high, approx. 50 eur per person and that is without wine), but unfortunately it was a dissapointment... I ordered a harira soup which generally i find quite tasty but this time was below average, after which i ordered... More

UK prices dual menu French and Moroccan . Nice place beautifully decorated but sullen staff and disappointing food. Moroccan starters were poor and chicken and lamb cous cous bland. Very expensive wine list. To be fair there may be some good stuff on the menu but I would not want to spend the money and time to find it

The food was "ordinary" (in the Australian sense of the term). The lamb in the tagine was a piece of neck scrag- 50% bone, but disguised by the bad lighting. The starter was stoge. We also experienced the escort out stunt by the "doorman" experienced by the other reviewer but having been also subjected to a similar scam by some... More

We were seated on the rooftop terrace, and the atmosphere on a warm balmy night was fantastic. We’ve had better Moroccan food, but what was served tasted nice and couldn’t be faulted. The staff were not overly friendly, but what they lacked in friendliness they made up for in efficiency. The only downside was at the end of the evening... More

Having visited Le Foundouk for the first time on the recomendation of friends, we had to return a second time to repeat the experience!! We weren't dissapointed!! Excellent food, service and atmosphere!! Having taken two taxis to the restaurant, after dinner, the doorman "walked" us back to our Riad through the back alleys of the Medina ... maybe the best...

The terrace of this restaurant is excellent and a great setting for dinner within the Medina. The food was ok and the service attentive but tailed off after the main courses were served. One tip, upon leaving the doorman walks you to your taxi and demands a tip, this was a bit cheap and probably sums up the service ethic... More

A very charming restaurant situated in the labyrint around the Medina. Make sure you have someone to take you there and also bring you back after the visit. It's impossible to find your own way:) The riad is beautiful, it's like a nice surprise when you come inside. We sat on the rooftop an enjoyed a good three cours meal.... More
