5-8 October 2012. I have never written a review before but feel compelled to share our experience at Riad Kasbah.
There was a total of 11 in our all female group (as you might imagine, some more easy to please than others and all quite fussy!) We were away on a 'girlie' weekend and celebrating
two birthdays. All 11 of us had an amazing time and were extremely impressed with Riad Kasbah, offering a fantastic level of service at all times - we arrived around 10 am ish, having been met and transferred from the airport by the very friendly staff - guided on foot, dodging the mopeds, donkeys and carts along the tiny cobbled lane to the Riad (quite dark and stinky but just adds to the quirky charm). On arrival we were offered breakfast, free of charge. We had arranged for a 'banquet dinner with belly dancing' on the Friday evening and this included a birthday cake - EXCELLENT value with a good variety of starters, breads, lamb tagine and orange mouse followed by the cake. Highly recommended and a great start to our weekend.
During our visit we also dined at:
'Terrasse des Epices' for lunch on two occasions (it was that good!) Really, really lovely.
'Al Fassia' for dinner Saturday evening which was truly awful - over priced, terrible service and very, very disappointing and such a shame as this was the only bad experience we had!
'Pepe Nero" on Sunday night. Superb ambience, excellent service and delicious food - €40 ea which included good wines and an amazing light chocolate layered mousse cake with candles!
I wish we had asked Hicham beforehand about his recommendations as he has excellent English and is exceptionally knowledgeable - next time.
Needless to say, we all plan to return.
