A fairly large menu, which was good because we stayed at the Villa six days and tried about every dish on the menu. We loved the hake "in love", the harira soup, the scallops and the tajines. We did not like the shepherd's pie and the tartare.

The restaurant at the Villa Mandarine gave me a totally delicious meal with escargots from the Atlas Mountains (I didn't know they had them), the most wonderful risotto (asparagus and mushrooms - divine) and fantastic leg of lamb and mashed potatoes. It's a beautiful hotel too, with more colours in it than you could believe - many coming from flowers.... More

A wonderful haven in an oasis of orange trees. The food was good, the service good and all in a wonderful courtyard. Had both dinner and breakfast there and both were well done.

We had lunch at Villa Mandarine as we were driving from Casablanca to Fez. We were told it is the best restaurant in Rabat. Set on a former estate the property is in a quiet residential area. The restaurant decor was simple but elegant, and the food good (excellent lamb). The highlight was the peace and tranquility of the gardens.... More

We had breakfast there; the buffet was very good. It was a mixture of mainly Western (European) with a few Moroccan style foods.

I have been several times in this Restaurant and i can confirm that is the best that you can find there. French style food with a gorgeous souflé. Fish and meat with very good quality. Excellent presentation of the dishes. Recommended

I've been many times to Villa Mandarine, situated within a residential area, at the end of a road. The restaurant is appreciated by many, some of the dishes are indeed showing a certain level of research. Prices are on the higher end of what you can find in Rabat. I'm a little bit concerned about the lack of coherence in... More

Just perfect!! Great food, good service, nice cadre. It would be better off with some background music. It's reasonably priced for what you get. Every penny that you'll spend in this place is worth it.
