Delicious meal in the heart of the medina with a guide from the restaurant to take you the last few 100 metres.

Delicious choice of local and European cuisine. Charming service. Ask to be seated upstairs. With the added bonus that one of their staff, complete with cloak and lantern, will meet your taxi and guide you to the restaurant so you get no hassles or harassments. And then guide you back. A huge plus... read more

Like many Marrakech establishments La Foundouk is hidden behind a heavy door which can easily be missed. We found it quite by accident and entered a dramatic candlelit interior. Our table was on the upper floor and we were looked after by many attentive and charming staff. The food was good, well cooked and presented although in retrospect my entree... More

This restaurant is located in the northeast section of the Marrakech medina, well off the beaten path for most visitors (though around the corner from where we stayed). Like most places in the medina, it's not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is beautiful. The restaurant has two floors. We ate on the upper floor (if... More

We had dinner twice at Le Foundouk primarily because it was located a minute's walk from our riad (the excellent Riad Farnatchi). We were seated upstairs both times and enjoyed the decor and ambiance. The restaurant is very romantic, with dozens of candles providing soft lighting and flowers on each table. They offer a European and Moroccan menu; we ate... More

We went here ten years ago and it was our favourite restaurant then. Its very hard to find but once there the decor is exotic and the roof terrace is an amazing venue. We had lunch this time. I gather this is new as it was dinner only. The food is good but not cheap.

Lovely interiors and good food but expensive. Not a wide selection The Moroccan red wine is surprisingly great so I think we enjoyed that more than the food! Lovely design though and I would visit again.

Sleepy waiters, but good food and nice atmosphere. We were escorted too and from the restaurant to the taxis. The area where the restaurant is located is not so pleasant and it can be a bit difficult to find. So we where quite happy with this service.

Cosy and romantic, great atmosphere, good food, there is a nice terrace on the top of the riad, and we love the decor. We have been a few times to Le Foundouk whilst visiting Marrakech and will no doubt return on our next visit.

I was there for my wedding anniversary and both me and my wife were amazed bu the stilish environment and the richly tasting food we had for dinner. The service has been perfect: fast, kind and helping. The bill was perfect: a very good dinner for two at 60 euro (with half bottle of wine), I think it's perfect.

the restaurant is very beautiful. They have two menues one moroccan and another international. Desserts are just excellent. I enjoyed having dinner here though the difference from the inside and the outside is a bit shocking. Maybe for me the luxury of the restaurant was a too big mismatch with the surroundings.
