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

“Amazing food, Amazing Atmosphere, Amazing Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We can be very hard to please when it comes to food but this restaurant ticked every single box! We were recommended this place by our Riad and we were so happy that we took their advice. The menu was a great take on modern moroccan food with a french twist and all at reasonable prices (compared to european prices). The restaurant is set in a garden with an open roof and the tables are situated amongst the many palm trees and plants within it- there was even a tortoise strolling around! The waiters were really friendly and open as well as being extremely professional. We would recommend this restaurant to any of our friends going to visit Marrakech.

“A calm retreat, delicious food, but quite expensive for Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We came across Le Jardin by accident and were delighted with the venue, as it really is worth visiting for the charming garden setting. The peace was slightly spoilt by the incongruous house music that was playing, but the staff were kind enough to change it for something more befitting the atmosphere and birdsong in the garden. We had very good tagines, although the servings were on the small size. The waitress was charming and helpful, but the service was a little slow, considering it was early and there were very few other people there. The wine was excellent and it was an enjoyable evening meal, although the prices are quite high for Marrakech.

“Grossly overpriced and there would be many far better restaurants in Marrakech.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for a nice restaurant and le Jardin seemed to be the ideal place. A calm oasis in a frenetic Medina. We ordered two cheese omelettes at 70dirhams each (we had never paid more than 30 dirhams for an omelette before) so expected something special. We were wrong! The omelettes were the smallest we had seen and were accompanied by a small piece of tomato and a couple of pieces of bread. Although the garden setting was pleasant with a large central tree, the bird dropping on my wife's shoulder during our "meal" indicated that umbrellas over the tables would be a good idea. Thank goodness the dropping didn't land in the omelette. The service was poor and the cheese omelettes had no cheese. Not a complicated order but we couldn't be bothered sending them back to the kitchen. Try somewhere else for a Moroccan meal.

“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!!
