“Beautiful food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2015

There is a set dinner menu with a few options to choose from. The restaurant is upmarket, and the price reflects this, but the food is top quality and well worth it. Very reasonably priced in comparison to the same quality in other countries. The setting is beautiful, in the middle of the riad.

“You can go there for the location and the food ... if you like traditional style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

We got there by recommandation for the local food, it's traditional moroccon style, well done, but with no extra invention.
The location not far away from the central place, it's typically Marrakech-style, the service was attentive in the beginning until they got a Japanese group of travelers, somehow then ou waiter got lost in transition ....
Anyway, nice place, good traditional ford, but you can find the same also elsewhere

“Delicious and authentic ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

Whilst staying at the riad, we decided to eat in the restaurant and were very pleased with the high quality of food and excellent service. The food offered was on a set menu and my husband had one option and I had the other (that way we got to try it all). It started with bread, a selection of amuse bouche and then a carrot soup. Next a chicken tagine and a beef style tagine with couscous followed by two different desserts. Mint tea to conclude.
Please note that my descriptions do not do the food justice!!!
The standard of food was high together with friendly and attentive service. You really felt you were eating authentic and traditional food and sitting around the pool made this a peaceful and romantic environment.
An excellent restaurant.

“Great location and good, but not great, food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2015

Small restaurant at this Riad just off the main square serves a good tasting menu. The food was good, but nothing special. I think the prices were ok given the very central location, but it was probably the most expensive meal of our trip.

“Excellent intimate dinner. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2015

We were recommended to this restaurant in a Riad by our concierge. It is in the medina at the end of a small alley.

The person who served us was very nice, recommending to our family of five that we only share three dishes because of the portion size.

We followed his advice and had a great dinner with dessert. The food and the service were both excellent.
