Local Morrocan

The Restaurant is supposed to be of a very high standard.The interior setting is indeed luxurious Morrocan the table settings are very beautifully laid out.

This restaurant, Le Ziryab, is tucked away in the middle of a maze of old town alleys in the old town. The traditional Moroccan cuisine is phenomenal. You can find it by following signs posted in the old town shopping area. Frankly, it is not so easy to see, so in case of need, feel free to ask the locals.... More

Not correct. Low quality food. Promised menu and music were not offered. Bill based on head count and not on ordered food. Kids counted as adults. This place should be closed for being a trap. Menu is not shown. Prices are hidden. Our night was ruined.

Which we did not see simply coz there was nothing. As for the food they only served us one plate of lamb they did not have enough quantity... More

Don't be dazzled by the relatively good looking Moroccan interior design, the restaurant, the food and the menu is a big lie. Touching base with the restaurant over the phone, they listed numerous entertainment from belly dancers to moroccan singers ..., when we got there, there was nothing but a solo playing Oud and he left 20 minutes later....

The restaurant is like a secret palace amidst the passage of old city. Lots of soul. We tried the menu and it is really too much too eat. The food is ok for non Moroccon. The beautiful ambiance covers all weakness.

If you want a traditional style meal then this is the place. It's many courses are the standard sort that you'd expect but at a better quality than you might expect elsewhere. However I don't think that the extra cost is worth it. If you want authentic I'd suggest you go elsewhere where you can really experience it up close... More

If you want to have a true Moroccan experience, go there. It is a must! I went there on my two trips to Rabat. The traditional setting in the heart of the Rabat medina, the wonderful roof perspectives with the open architecture on two floors, and the soft live Moroccan traditional music all make you feel in one of the...

We arrived late in Rabat and stumbled across this restaurant. There's only 2 of us and we asked to be seated closer to center so we could see the performance. The female "manager" said they were fully booked and stuffed us into a hidden corner. When we asked for the menu, she said they were only pre-fix with no choices.... More
