The restaurant is located a bit remotely, however the locals know it well and would guide you to the place. It is large enough, but we had a reservation so were seated on a terrace. There are two menus - one traditional and other international, and it is possible to mix them. Portions rather big, because there was no spaces... More

We grew tired of couscous and tagines so we looked up a good local restaurant - We selected the foundouk based on the menu - It is hidden down a maze of streets so it is probably best to get a taxi there - We were led up the 5 sets of steps to the roof where we had a... More

We loved the location and the ambience on the terrace. There were four of us and two dishes were excellent and the other two just average. The confit duck was overcooked and dry the chicken tagine not a patch on what we've had elsewhere, but the John Dory was excellent. We drank beer after seeing the price of the wines!

Lovely place, but the roof terrace for dinner is even more spectacular. Wonderful assortment of Moroccan delicacies, or world cuisine.

Visited on recommendation from a website. The day we visited there had been a thunderstorm so we couldn't sit on the terrace and the skylight was covered over. This made it exceptionally hot and uncomfortable inside. Food was bland and the service was not great. Not a single smile from the dour, miserable staff all night. They looked like they... More

We stayed at a Rhiad close to this restaurant but I can imagine it might be hard to find if you are not staying near here as it was sometimes hard to find our Rhiad! Take a taxi and give a kid some change and he will walk you here. Or ask for directions to the "Musee de Marrakech" ,... More

Located on the east side of the Medina. Bit of a walk and adventure to find, but a "guide" will take you there for 10 DH.... The place is a treasure at night; we had dinner on the upper terrace, under the stars. Very romantic with red lanterns. Take a sweater, as the breeze can be cool. Perhaps a flashlight... More

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
