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

“1970s French elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

A well-signposted, yet hidden gem. This beautiful restaurant/cafe has several tiers in which to dine and enjoy the view of the landscaped courtyard. The vibe is very vintge France and the food delicious.

“Not to be missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

A complete oasis in the middle of the Medina. Behind the big black wooden door (which could easily be missed in the dark) there is a wonderful garden (hence it’s name) along with a really great restaurant. Very romantic at night (as it is quite darkly lit) but also great for groups and there are two floors to this place. I would image it’s quite a different place during the day but never got back for lunch. The food we had was superb; beef carpaccio; fillet of beef with a pepper sauce and the chocolate gateaux (read torte) was most yummy. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Marrakech.

“A pricey piece for peace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle, want cool, green surrounds, then this is the place to go. If you want value for money, in terms of food, then you might want to look elsewhere. The food was nice, well cooked... but by Moroccan standards, over-priced. Staff were friendly and polite.

“Delightful dinner in a lovely setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

My wife and I had dinner at Le Jardin after wandering through the souk. The atmosphere is delightful and the staff helpful and attentive (but not intrusively so). My wife had a chicken couscous which was excellent. My beef au poivre was fine and certainly as good as one would expect in any Marrakech restaurant (beef is not Marrakech's strong suit) The wine was perfectly drinkable and nice and cold (and if you expect more than this in Marrakech at anything less than an extortionate price then you're deluding yourself). Overall, a really good choice for dinner and highly recommended.
