“Great locale, good and plentiful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The locale and ambience is unbeatable. If you're a couple, this is an amazing date place. It is the type of restaurant you would only find in Morocco. The menu was fixed and came with wine. There was a lot of food. The salads were tasty as were the tagine and couscous. The food was not as good was Al Fassia or Ksar Es Essouan, but it was still good. Make sure you go hungry because the portions are rather big and the courses keep coming.

The one bad thing was that they had these two musicians come by each table (the music was good and the guys were funny) buskering for money. For me it kind of cheapens the experience and is somewhat tasteless to be solicited for money while you are trying to enjoy your meal. The restaurant has a more serious atmosphere than other restaurants we went to, such as Ksar Es Essouan, that were more laid back.

“Fabulous experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Loads of different beautifully cooked courses kept coming. And they kept bringing more wine and water. We thought it was good value for all we ate and drank. Wonderful surroundings. The only problem is that it is very difficult to find. If you get close, someone will guide you.

“perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Fantastic atmosphere, candlelight, romantic and extremely friendly. The owner is so severe as efficient. The menu is endless and the food is fresh and of excellent quality. The waiters very good and kind. A bit pricey but absolutely of good value. I would definitely recommend it.

“Very Exotic, Lots of Food for Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

In order to get to the restaurant you need to be met on the street by a guide which the restaurant supplies. Then you are led down narrow winding streets until you get to the restaurant, which is lovely, with lots of candles and exotic music. The dinner is prix fixe, huge and very good.....many courses. I would definitely recommend going here.

“Should be the set for a James Bond Film”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

By the standards of Marrakech the food was very si,ilar other restaurants, marginally better than others. However the setting was outstanding. We visited the restaurant twice, first time we sat upstairs on a sofa in the corner and the second downstairs in the covered courtyard. Music was fine, service was good.
Thoroughly recommend
