“Best night in Marrakech!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

My boyfriend and I went to this resturant for our last night in Morocco after a month of travelling. We took a taxi for 20DH from Gueliz and it was SO worth it.
We were welcomed from the moment we walked in and what a haven! We were given the choice to have a drink before being seated but wanted to be sat straight away which wasnt a problem even though we hadnt booked. The dining area is gorgeous and very romantic. The tables are all set around a swimming pool and the majority of the lighting is left purely to candle light.
I chose the risotto which was amazingly delicious and great value. My boyfriend had the lasanga which as he was saying he'd like some bread to dip in, the waiter, as he said it, provided us with some!!
Perfect evening and great service with delicious food and wine.
I would 100% recommend this place while in Marrakech. Great last memory of our holiday!

“Birthday Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great location and lovely ambience. Have to say felt rushed as the food came too quickly between the courses.
But okay

“Definately worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We picked this restaurant out of a guide book and we were so glad we did! The whole evening was a magical dining experience. A place to put on your glad rags and dress up for the evening. We hadn't booked so just chanced that they had space and we got lucky. Pre dinner drinks were taken in the courtyard area (beautifully lit with candles) then we were shown to our table which was next to the shimmering, candle lit pool (that no-one swims in!) I have rarely seen such attentive staff. If I'm honest the food was, in my opinion, only OK, nothing wrong with it but only 1 out of 4 of us "absolutely loved it". We didn't have starters or mains. Despite this I would definately go again just to soak up the wonderful ambience.

“Poolside garden dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

What a fabulous place. We started our evening with cocktails in the garden area then proceeded through to dine beside the pool. We food was superb and made such a change from couscous and tagines. There were 11 in our party and each and everyone of us enjoyed our meal. Many locals were eating here when we were there. All in all we had a lovely evening from beginning to end. I would thoroughly recommend this place. Out of all the restaurants that we eat in this was by far my favourite.
