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

“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here one evening and it was A very very nice experience. The personal was great, friendly, fast and helpful. The food was great! My boyfriend had something we had no idea about (the menu is in french) but it tasted so great! Exciting flavours and well cooked. The atmosphere in the resturant is very cosy, with candles and palmtrees. Overall we had one of the best experiences i have ever had in a resturant!

We will go back here!!

“Humble, incredible.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We came here unplanned after not fancying the look of a couple of other places nearby. The small discrete door and menu on the wall outside barely giving a clue as to the oasis that lies beyond. On entering you're greeted by a luscious green courtyard filled with palms, orange trees and the tweets of canaries. We opted for the roof terrace only to find that accompanying the tables were a range of seats best described as day beds! Very relaxing. Service was impeccable right from the start but the real jewel in the crown was the food. We were absolutely blown away. So much so we booked another evening before we left... Which was even more incredible than the first experience might I add. Needless to say, we came back for lunch one final time before departing Marrakech.

“Not sure what the fuss is about?? ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

My partner and i came here for lunch after reading so many good reviews. Granted, the setting is pleasant and relaxing enough- but the service and food? Not impressive! In fact the service was shocking. We ordered sardines and aubergine salad, and a large water. ONE HOUR later the food had arrived - sardines and filo pastry of some sort - not quite what we ordered. Worst part is that our water still hadn't arrived - even after pestering about 4 different waiters. We were both getting a bit frustrated!

These kind of things wouldnt normally bother me...but the food wasnt that great at all. A few bits of bread and sardine and some tiny excuses for pastry. Meals? Definitely not. The pastry was dry and bland, only saving grace was the tasty sardines. We paid £20 for a lunch i wouldnt have paid a fiver for in central london. Confused about these reviews- surely there are better, authentic moroccan restaurants in marrakech.

All waiters v grumpy and when we eventually tried to pay there was a huge mix-up about what we actually ordered.

To be honest - not on my recommendation list!!

“Le Jardin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a green oasis within the Medina. We had lunch here and it was a much needed break from shopping. Food very good and prices seemed reasonable. Turtles crawling all over the floor provided entertainment.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

As others have said this is an oasis hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the souks.

The service was fantastic - we acutally went to Cafe des Epices first (one of its sister restaurants) and we were looking to have a glass of wine with our lunch - which you will learn is hard to find in the centre! and they pointed us in the right direction where we were warmly received.

In fact we loved Le Jardin so much that we went there twice. The first time it was raining so we sat inside looking out into the garden and the next day the sun was shining and we were up on the roof terrace enjoying the sun.

The lentil and aubergine salad and the grilled vegetable salad were both incredible.
