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...

When our hotel recommended Le Ziryab, we were skeptical - we thought maybe the hotel had an agenda + the TripAdvisor reviews seemed a bit mixed. Bottom line - we were so glad we went!! This was actually our first dinner in Morocco - and it was the best. First - just as a heads up - the restaurant is... More

This has a pure Moroccan atmosphere and good service. But too expensiv. The first dish excellent. The main cours mediate and the dessert ok. Cakes wonderful. Fixed menu but you dont get the price before the bill comes in the end. 400 dh/person. The waitress loudly empasized that the bill was excluded tip. Twice. This vanished the feeling that this...

This lovely traditional Moroccan restaurant is hidden in the Medina. It is a wonderful introduction to Moroccan cuisine. The service was good, the food well-prepared. And they were able to attend to a larger group.

I am very happy that we did not miss this place. Truly authentic.. We were hesitant to go back to the medina for dinner but you would not believe that this place is in the medina. It has similar authenticity to the medina but it is really classy. There was a band playing and the service was excellent. They were... More
