“Birthday Evening Celebrations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stayed local to this venue in the Medina, & our riad staff suggested the Les Jardins, on 11th Sept 2013.
We did'nt book in advance, & our party numbered 6, for a special birthday evening. The waiting staff were very helpful & friendly, & as soon as they knew we were celebrating they offered us discounted champagne.
The food was good, but what made it really special was the decor/garden setting, just gorgeous.
Thoroughly recommend this hidden gem in the Medina.

“Stunning setting, incredible food, wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were not staying at the hotel but decided one night to see what the restaurant was like. We were not disappointed. As soon as you come in off the streets of crazy Marrakech, it was like a tranquil haven. The setting next to the pool amongst all the plants and trees was truly beautiful and was the most peaceful setting I have ever eaten a meal. It was magical and very romantic. I would recommend this restaurant for the setting even if the food was not amazing, but that was not the case!

The food was excellent. I had some of the best meals I have ever eaten in the three nights we dined here. The Lamb Shank and Beef Tagine were incredible. The meat was cooked to perfection. The service was great each night we dined and we felt we were very well looked after.

If we were ever to come to Marrakech again we would think about staying at the hotel just because it was so beautiful and tranquil compared to the crazy rustle and bustle outside. We ate out at a few different places during our weeks stay in Marrakech, and although great, none of them were a better experience than eating at the Jardin. We could not find a place with the same amazing food cooked to such perfection. Would love to return! Highly recommended.

“Amazing food, beautiful garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Very relaxing atmosphere - you'll forget all the hustle outside. The food is insanely good, so good actually that you won't mind the sauce arriving two minutes after the seafood couscous (it's THAT good even without the sauce), the white wine you ordered with your main course arriving a little late, etc... The service isn't perfect but there's nothing annoying about it - they absolutely do their best to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I'll defenitely come again on my next trips to Marrakech.

“Beautiful setting, excellent food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We were staying at the Riad so decided to eat here for 2 nights of our stay. The soups and pancake starters were lovely. The beef Rossini was superb and the lamb excellent. Prices are more akin to UK prices but worth it.

“amazing dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

My husband and I were looking for a romantic restaurant and this place was just the ticket! The restaurant has a romantic and elegant feel from the second you walk in! There is fantastic view overlooking the traditional medina of Marrakesh! The food and service were fantastic! The next time we travel through Marrakesh this will be a for sure stop!!
The food is amazing, i order brochette de poulet and banana juice and my friend order moroccan tea and pastilla.i recommend you to try the dessert, pastilla creme the taste is amazing and the service is great.you can enjoy the view of Marrakesh from the terrace of this restaurant. Its totally worth to try while you were in Marrakesh!
i want also to thank the chief of the restaurant miss sanna GAMAS because i will never forget her food and her hospitality wich was very freindly and welcoming person and also i want to thank all the staff of jardins de la medina *all of u are fantastic* see you next time
