“Great Trendy Atmosphere, but later in the night.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Overall a good Resteraunt with good food but very small portions.
Belly dancers and entertainment was great and a relaxed no hurry atmosphere. Drinks and food quite expensive for Marrakech, but the night club vibe and music after 11 makes it a worthwhile visit.

“Only went for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The decor seems very authentic and is very popular amongst the hip and happening crowd in Marrakech. Rightly so, the bar area had a live band that was simply amazing, playing lots of classics 80's pop music, the band was superb and the singers very good. Be sure to have money to spend though a bottle of corona was 120 Dhirams (£9.61 at our rate of exchange).
I hope you enjoy it, we certainly did,

“New Year's Eve, not the best start to 2013”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

It was aweful ! Food was soo bad! We told the wait staff and they did nothing, we finally found the manager and he didn't care! The French people next to us also complained and at least the manager spoke to them. Midnight came and then they passed out the party favors :/ a woman in our small party of 3 is allergic to shellfish and they did nothing to acomadate her. Told her it would be ok if she ate the food! Food was all over the place bland, overcooked, still frozen, sand in my scallops and just weird (cappuccino gumbo). We were serve one glass of champaign upon arrival and nothing for new year toast. We could have bought a bottle for a min. of $300! Our New Years package was already over $300+ per person!!! Party favors were pathetic and the band was playing in the bar area for only a few people! We asked our tour guide if we would have good seating and he told us that they assured him we would be well taken care of...we sat by the open door and froze! We also only saw the entertainment for about 15 minutes! The belly dancers wenre the best part of our evening if only for a few minutes! We had nice table neighbors and were able to laugh at the situation but we will never reccomend this place. Way overpriced for bad food and poor service!!!

“This is an entertainment venue, not a restaurant!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went there for New Year's Eve dinner, so our experience might be illustrative but it was not typical. These people do know how to entertain - great show, fantastic dancers - the only let down was the mediocre live band (they did not even do a venue-wide countdown - the only thing remotely approaching one was a waiter making a round of tables and saying "midnight in 2 minutes!"). Service was brisk and remarkably friendly, especially given that it was a packed house. However, the food (western) was BAD-TO-HORRIBLE, even making allowance for 'industrial' cooking on such an evening. Patrons - mainly hip young people or nouveaux-riches older ones - did not seem to mind, because the atmosphere was good. Price was steep for the value given (€ 270 per head with service but without alcohol).
