Description: Our new restaurant, “Les Trois Saveurs”, which offers a choice of French, inventive Moroccan or Asian-inspired dishes. Our head chef, Didier Levy, was previously in charge of the kitchen at “Le Pavillon”, considered for many years the best French restaurant in Marrakech. Didier has a passion for seafood, which is bought fresh to the hotel from the coastal towns of Oualidia and Essaouira.The handmade teardrop-shaped lanterns at “Les Trois Saveurs” were specially designed for La Maison Arabe by Yahya Rouach; his workshop is producing the most refined metalwork in Morocco today.

“Everything was delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Best meal we had in Marakech, hands down! We recommend the tasting menu to get a variety of several traditional Morroccan dishes. The tagines and salads were excellent.

“Delicious but extortionate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We decided to go to La Maison Arabe because it is famous, has good reviews and is only a couple of steps from our riad. The staff were charmin and the buildings lovely although we ate early so there were very few guests. The meal was delicious but the prices are shocking compared with everywhere else. We didn't go there again as it cost as much as going out for supper in London despite our limited choices.

“Eat by the pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Lovely restaurant, (there are two, so eat in the one by the pool!). Great choice of food, including veggie options, and wine selection is not bad either. Worth visiting, probably be twice the price of anywhere else you eat in Marrakech, but still, not even London prices etc.

“Expensive but average”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The food is fairly average for what it costs! I would also advise that for anyone not ordering the set menu that you ask the waiter to tell you the prices of the individual courses and then write it down in front of him. We thought we were going for the cheaper option of just a starter and main course, but when we got our bill at the end of the meal we found that we'd been charged for the set menu. When we asked the waiter about it he said that by ordering mint tea our total bill had exceeded the price of the set menu so they "did us a favour" by only charging us the set menu prices. When we challenged him on the prices of the individual courses (and the 150 MAD we were charged for a pot of dried mint leaves in hot water!) suddenly the prices we were quoted when we entered were wrong. It was his word against ours and suddenly no one could speak very good English. To rub salt in the wound we even had to pay the service charge included in the bill. The cynic in me really believes we were deliberately ripped off because they were having a quiet night (we were the only couple in the restaurant the entire time). It's taught me a harsh lesson that there are dishonest people the world over so why should Marrakesh be any different.
