“Been there 3 times already in 9 days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Very authentically French. The atmosphere is just superb. Felt very welcome each time we visited.

The staff are extremely friendly and that includes Rachid, Samir and of course Foad as well as the rest of the staff.

The food is good. Wine is excellent. And again, atmosphere is seriously amazing. Do not miss out on this place.

“Think Parisian Brassarie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I loved the old Bagatelle and was extremely sad to see it closed and bulldozed for an apartment block. I am, however, extremely happy to find it re opened by the same family that have had it for over fifty years and only metres away from the old site. The decor is the same, with wonderful black and white photographs of the family and Marrakech, spread over decades.

The menu and service is as good as ever and it was wonderful to see the same staff that were there before it was closed, over five years ago. My partner and I always eat there as soon as we arrive in Marrakech and we make it a tradition, that it is the last place in which we eat before we leave.

Great location, easy to get to and any taxi driver knows it.

The clientele are mainly ex pats and locals and that too adds something special. If you eat at The Bagatelle, you really feel part of Marrakech life and it's history, more than just a tourist passing through.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This beautiful location has an interior that recalls early 20th century decor - recessed stained-glass ceiling, brass, dark wood, red lamps, mirrors. The outdoor seating area is filled with greenery and well-designed lighting. Service is charming and familiar. There is a regular menu, as well as rotating plats du jour. The flavor of dishes tends toward the subtle, with accents on a particular herb or spice, rather than overly complex or brash preparations that other flashy restaurants often try. All of this suggests a well-established restaurant that is comfortable with its repertoire. Altogether an excellent place to spend a leisurely evening, enjoying a multi-course meal in the relaxing, slightly-upscale-yet-welcoming, neighborly atmosphere that is Bagatelle.

“best restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

la bagatelle was absolutely stunning from its decor to its food and service. we stayed just round the corner from la bagatelle and visited on our last night. what a superb choice we made!! The french onion soup was amazing, the kidneys in red wine sauce were very tasty and as for the chocolate fondant....... i would fly back right now for one of these.. So wish we had discovered La Bagatelle earlier in our holiday as we would have gone back!!!! Cant rate this place highly enough!!
