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.

“Nice Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We had a really good starter with a delicious variety of salad/vegetables served in small tagine pots - just the kind of rustic flavoursome food we were hoping for. We made the mistake of ordering two sweet tagine dishes...the beef and orange and the Royale...lamb and apricot. One of those balanced with something more savoury would have been a much better choice. The food is great to share. The tagines were good but I would have enjoyed a more savoury balance to the fruit which was so intensely sweet. The dining room is really beautiful and the live music and roaring fire were welcomed.

“Don't miss out on Couscous and Tajene dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Fantastic sampling of traditional Moroccan food. Pleasant live music at 8 - 2 guitarists. Eat very little during the day, portions are delicious and generous.

“The service is fantastic, the food is delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This restaurant is located inside the hotel and its simply amazing. We had an aperitif before our meal and the bartender was exceptional, very friendly, very knowledgeable just as a bar tender should be. He remembered our first names, he kept on doing non alcoholic juices and offering to prepare those with any choice of alcohol that we wanted, this is a great subtle upsell that was very welcoming. The restaurant is located inside the Medina at the end of an alley, it has tables around the pool at the inner courtyard, like many other tourist restaurants in the area. The F&B manager came to introduce himself which was very nice and he went to say goodbye to everyone who was dining at their departure. The service overall in fantastic. I had the chicken tangine and it was OK, but the fish dish that my friend asked for was delicious!! Expect to spend around 500 dirham for a 2 course meal.

“Luxe Setting & Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Perfect setting, outside on the terrace next to the pool and in the garden area. Quite what I thought a dining experience at a Moroccan riad would be. First dinner as delicious: spicy carrot soup, crab salad flavored with Argan oil, Moroccan version of duck l'orange, and the prawns, finished with the crepes Suzette. Highlight was when the waiter gave us jalabiyas to wear because our heat lamp wasn't working; that was dining in style!

Our second dinner here was our last night in Morocco and it didn't disappoint. Traditional moroccan salads (eggplant, sweet peppers, potato, lentils, a sweet potato like chutney, mini phyllo dough spinach pastries), monkfish tagine, and Creme brûlée for dessert.

Wines are quite good as well, and the service is impeccable.

Breakfast should not be missed. Stuffed Moroccan bread is the star (it's made by hand and to order by a woman who sits pool side, and you can watch her at work!), but the yogurt is the true surprise. Great fresh squeezed juice and pastries as well.
