We stayed in this riad on Dec 27th - 30th 2014. Our room was great. Very spacious with a fantastic tall ceiling, nice comfortable bathroom. Breakfast was good and the the ladies catering us were very polite and helpful. The first night we had dinner at the riad's restaurant. Complete rip-off. They charge 300Dirhams per person for a poor set menu. The wine list consists of only two local whines. We chose the red whine called Medaillon. The price was 500dirhams (approx 50 euros). Since then everywhere else we dinned in the best 5 star hotels and restaurants , we found this wine between 280 - 300 Dirhams. When confronted them with this rip-off, the manager tried to insult our intelligence with pathetic excuses. Off course no attempt or offer to make up for this. Generally the riad is just about ok to stay - but it would have been a very nice place if they improved the services and respected their guest's intelligence.
