During our business trip to Rabat we received the recommendation to have dinner in this restaurant. We first visited the awesome old city, with it's 7 to 8 centuries old houses, and then moved to the medina. Strolling through the narrow streets, passing small shops with a myriad of smells and colours is an experience not to be missed. When... More

One of the main and to some extent only restaurant that surrounded me and made me feel the real traditional cuisine of Morocco. I didn't expected that much. Service is a key to embrace customer, and then the art of presentations of dishes is the last move to amaze guests. Even when the music - live being mixed with bellydances... More

This restaurant is located in the middle of the Medina. The place is really nice, a real ryad. The staff is really atencious and the food is good. The problem I found in tradicional Moroco restaurants, is the most of them worked based on fixed menu. For us it was just too much food. There were also musicians playing tradicional... More

Walking through the medina to access this restaurant is a great start to am authentic meal. Make sure to walk to the rooftop to look out over the entire city and enjoy the live, regional music. The food is tasty and the cous cous is plentiful. There is also a small wine list and bar selection.

.We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in as typically Moroccan. The venue is situated up a winding back alley in the old Medina and is in a converted building, the decor is really nice and the staff were friendly and attentive. However that is the only thing going for the place, the food was really... More

Thanks to our hosts at Riad El Maati, we found this restaurant and had the best dinner and evening this entire trip. At first we thought no one was there because we knocked on the door several times, but once the doors opened, we were welcomed by a beautiful little heaven with smells, decor and music which we will not...
