“Very good food in a nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

One of the best restaurant in Marrakech. We had a tipical Moroccan dinner. We started with a mix of three different pastilla and then we had one chicken tajine (one of the best I ever had in Morocco), a lamb tajine (very good) and a seafood cous cous (average, and full of veg with few pieces of fish). The atmosphere is nice and altought the temperature was very hot we enjoyed the fresh air created by the vegetation all around. Obviously, the price is expensive compared to most of the restaurants in Marrakech but good value for money.

“Dinner for 2 twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This restuarant is a little more upmarket but very nice. The surroundings are beautiful. The food is interesting as you can sample from 'here' or 'there' which is different. Staff were very friendly and the service was quick and good. Ambience was nice. You felt you could dress up a little to go there.

“Waste of time and money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I am so sick and tired of these fancy places that can not live up to what they are trying to be.
Cold food, hot glas for the cold beer, menues getting mixed up, restaurant manager making a fool of himself. No, I wouldn't suggest anyone to go to the restaurant or to the bar - Les jardins de la Medina.

“You'll never taste roast lamb like this anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

At £80.00 for two, there are cheaper restaurants in Marrakech, but when you consider the beautiful gardens, the lovely ambiance and surroundings, and the wonderful food, then this place represents very good value for a truly special evening. My wife and I had the pancakes to start (wow) and then the roast lamb, a dish for two that was simply wonderful,it is a must if you go here...... for pudding we had the pineapple tart which was a masterpiece in food art besides tasting as good as it looked. Service was good and the Gres Rose wine was just perfect.....all in all faultless, and without a doubt will be on our return list when we visit crazy but wonderful Marrakech. Table tip: ask for a table outside in the gardens by the pool.....

“beautiful surroundings ... service ...meah..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

you enter the hotel from a beaten up street, its a beautiful riad in the Kasbah district. Upon arrival lots of french speaking staff in uniforms.. seems like it will be a good experience. Sat down in restaurant.. waited... staff looked at us and ignored us... waited. about 10 minutes.. got up and asked what was happening... told food was only being served in the bar... OK.. schleeped into the bar, waited... barman watched us.. waited 5 minutes .. stalemate... gestured for menu.. brought cocktail menu, asked for food menu.... waited... asked for supervisor, ordered food .. nobody asked us if we wanted ANY DRINKS.. its 38 degrees...! waited... 40 minutes, food arrived on the bar... we watched it..waited..barman watched it.. waited... asked for him to bring it over. Ate food it was good... still no offer of drinks.. Demanded bill.. paid left.. over an hour waiting... Had it not have been scorching outside we would have left after first idiotic wait.
