Description: a newcomer. This new restaurant in the old town of Marrakech is welcome as a calm oasis. Coulour are all in green and black( and white ) there is a large patio with a slight market feeling , then lots of terrasses ,and alcoves. As it was quite new when I went there lin February it feels a bit empty , but with Easter holidays approaching it is certainly a great place to relax during your shopping spree in the souks

“Hidden gem of a garden restaurant in the madness of the souks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This place was recommended to me by the lady who runs the riad I stayed in. I didn't go for a couple of days because I (wrongly) thought it would be "just another recommendation" - I was wrong! Loved it so much I ended up going there about 4 times in total during my stay.

Service was good and attentive (and the same could not be said for numerous other places I ate in Marrakech), food was always very good (think perhaps more relaxed and informal than formal dining) and the places itself has a fantastic, relaxed atmosphere - mostly due to the large plantation in the central courtyard but also to the multiple levels it has. One night there was an old film being shown on an outdoor wall upstairs with sofas aplenty to take it in. WiFi works well.

It's, from what i could fathom, owned/run by the same French people who operate the, equally worth a look, Terrace des Epices and Cafe des Epices.

Really enjoyed going there, as did the people I took there, and would go back again.

“A truly stunning place to eat a wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

This restaurant is huge but also very intimate due to the amount of plants and greenery. We had trouble picking the best place as there is are 2 roofterraces, booth's and a ground floor in between the trees. The location is great, just a small walk away from the busy square and it feels like a different world inside. The staff is super friendly and the food is great. This restaurant is a bit more expensive but well worth it.

“Just ok and a bit overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

It is ok for a break. In the terrace was too warm with a terrible background music that was a mix of everything. The waiters were always stressed walking from one side to the other. But they were nice, it was clean and food was ok.

“An oasis!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

A lovely oasis of greenery and peace in the midst of the madness of the Souk! Rabits playing the gardens. Would be a good place for children to run around a bit after being on a short leash in the souks. Reasonably priced and tasty food. Not far from the Museum of Marrakech and the Ben Youssef Medersa. Check out their website: lejardin.ma
