good but not exellent

Some friends told me it was very good, I found it correct and the food good but not particularly good. I've really appreciated the villa where people can eat. It is the right place to party an anniversary.

We enjoyed dinner on two separate occasions in the restaurant. One inside and one outside. The wait staff was very friendly and very willing to do what they could to make us comfortable in Morocco and Rabat. We had time to enjoy, listen to recommendation for food as well as wine while the servers enjoyed practicing speaking English. WE did... More

I have been a couple of times to Villa Mandarine and the food is just amazing. Too bad that the last lunch finished with the request of an infusion served in a BROKEN down teapot older than me (see image) with a top taken from somewhere else that didn't match and was falling anytime you would try to pour some...

My wife and I both enjoyed the delicious food. Though very much a French restaurant, I had ordered ahead and they prepared a delicious vegetable tajine for me. There was a good wine list. The service was excellent.

If you tire of tagines and cous cous, this is the place. We enjoyed abolutely wonderful French food with excellent service. It was perhaps the best meal we enjoyed in Morocco. The setting, a converted villa, is absolutely stunning: a combination of Moroccan and French styles.

Terrific Moroccan cuisine in a splendid garden setting. Part of a boutiqu-ey hotel (run by French expats I think) in a very nice part of town, near embassies, etc. Food was very well prepared and served, my only regret was not having a big enough stomach to eat more! We were here in the daytime, but I could imagine this... More

One of my favourite place to stay in Rabat. I had a wonderful Christmas meal here for lunch. Excellent service and garden atmosphere.

We had excellent meals in an attractive setting. Patronage was light, so we had very attentive service. Prices aren't cheap, but this is an upscale place.

This restaurant, housed in what seems like a wonderfully located hotel, serves great French-influenced food, beautifully cooked and presented. To begin with the executive chef could not do enough to ensure we were familiar with the menu and was very helpful with the selection. As the evening wore on (did he go home I wonder) service got worse and worse.... More

The rest was busy the night we were there, a concert in another room, so service was a bit slow. We had a table in an outside area which was good as there were many smokers in the area. We were staying at the VIlla so were not in a hurry and enjoyed a long and delightful meal. Nice wine... More
