Nice but too expensive

Wonderful place, good service and presentation, but too expansive compared to the quality of the food I've eaten... 40 euros it's too much for a dinner in rabat

We had our dinner in the riad just once. The moroccan salad was the best we had, perfectly spiced. I had already ordered my Fish Filet Moroccan Style in the afternoon to make sure to get fish. But that was really a disappointment. A Fish Tajine!!!! Completely fallen apart and very dry. What a shame. The waiter was very little... More

Our hotel booked this for us and arranged a taxi to take us to the medina gate where we were met by a man in traditional dress carrying a lantern who led us to the restaurant.

Having ordered 24 hours in advance we enjoyed wonderful slow cooked lamb tagine preceded by a selection of salads and followed by a delightful dessert. Lovely courtyard location and attentive smiling service.

We were staying already at this riad so decided to have dinner there. The system was a set of salads for starter, then choice of main and finally a house dessert for a fixed price. The food was good and unlike our experience with the standard riad staff the service was quite good. The waiter was helpful, when not watching... More

If you want fine dining in an idyllic setting, enjoy atypical tagines, delicious fish ... take the time to stop for lunch or dinner at the Riad Kalaa. The entire team of riad is dynamic and very caring for its customers, and after a good breakfast you can even have fun doing spa treatments! Living here for several years, Riad... More

We were staying at this Riad Kalaa and so we decided to try the restaurant for dinner - we were not disappointed. The restaurant was full, which is always a good sign. The Riad has a little (under used) bar and seating area, where we asked to be served some aperitifs at the bar seating area prior to our meal... More

We had a lovely evening in the courtyard restaurant of this Riad. The setting couldn't have been lovelier. We had a delicious starter of Moroccan Salad (several small plates of olives and marinated vegetables) with bread. We each had tagine, one of fish, the other of beef. The beef was a bit fatty, but that is typical throughout the country,... More

My husband and I were staying at the partner riad and decided to eat supper here after seeing the menu at check-in. We were so glad we did.
