“the restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It's not quite easy to locate but it was situated in a peace and I think in a right place.
I was with my friends and we always have a dinner here.
They have a very nice ambiance and great and friendly staff.
The food I like the most in this restaurant is the chicken cooked in tajine.

“Coped beautifully with a large group, excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The restaurant was booked for a celebration for a group of 20+ people. The regular menu was offered (although the starter was pre-booked b'stilla for all) and all the dishes were excellent.

I particularly enjoyed my calves liver (a dish that is easy to wreck). Cooked just right and tender.

Ambience was wonderful and the wait-staff were attentive and friendly throughout

“A wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were taken there by buy our friends on holiday and had a wonderful time. The service was very polite & friendly. The food we chose was excellent. The atmosphere was great. You can imagine being in a french restaurant in the late Fifties.

“Our favourite restaurant in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

As we were visiting Marrakech in March the outside garden of Bagatelle was closed, so when we first approached the restaurant we weren't even sure if it was open let alone whether it would be any good! Behind the thick red curtain lay a lovely, traditional French Bistro - our fears melted away!!

The atmosphere was great, a lot of locals and families out for Saturday night dinner, and the food was amazing! Traditional French fair but beautifully cooked. We might have been feeling sentimental for Marrakech as it was our last night but we had such a great time at Bagatelle, everyone was so friendly, I can't recommend it highly enough. Make sure you book though!

“Very good French Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Came here on the strength of the reviews and was not disappointed.

The confit of duck was seared on the outside so it was crispy but the meat was soft inside. It fell off the none easily. Best french fries in Morocco (not mushy- the usual in Morocco. IDK why). The pastilla was a crisp shell with powdered sugar, chicken with raisons, nuts and cinnamon inside. Liver was great, as was the tongue in cream sauce. Classic French desserts. All a welcome change from the ubiquitous tagines, although they offer it.

Alcoholic drinks in this Muslim country are usually disappointing. Not only do they pour them short, you cannot taste any alcohol. This is true all over Morocco, not just here.

Service was attentive and professional. The atmosphere is Paris bistro circa 1910. There is a large outdoor seating area but Feb. temps kept us inside with a cozy fire.
