“Come on people”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a totally average restaurant food wise, pretty setting , with ridiculous musicians that play one song and never take a break. For the price of 3 great meals anywhere else in Marrakech I do not understand how anyone rates them highly if they have ever eaten out before.

“Bring your appetite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Le Tobsil was our first dinner experience in Marrakech and wow it did not disappointment. Amazing variety of food on the fixed menu, and the portions were just amazing in both size and flavors. We would recommend you arrive very, very hungry because you'll want to consume everything that's put in front of you.

Delicious meal!

“A secret door to a great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wandering the back streets of the Madinet looking for Le Tobsil is enough to challenge anyone's faith in their sense of direction. On the verge of giving up, you will find an uninspiring door in a dark unlit alley. Go through it. The experience is more than worth it.

The inner courtyard if this elegant and cozy Riad is the setting for a great culinary experience. No choices (other than the wine, if you want) and a thousand and one plates of authentic (and good) marroccan cuisine will arrive and leave you bursting and entertained.

Surprising, memorable and worth every Dhinar.

“a Moroccan feast!”

A small but beautiful restaurant. MANY courses - all of which were beautifully presented in small portions. A treat for the senses!

“Quirky Morrocan restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great experience and a beautiful riad. We had the morrocan tasting menu - plenty of food but a little bland. It's definitely worth a visit but when booking ask if here is an al a carte menu as that may be better value.
