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.

“Excellent haven in chaotic Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

La Maison Arabe is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the hubbub that is Marrakech, and the restaurant is a fantastic way to experience it. Once you enter, the sounds, soot and cares of the city melt away, and you are able to relax by the pool and fountain, amid lush plants, and enjoy a relaxed, quiet meal. The staff is friendly and courteous, and the food is delicious, with fresh ingredients, lightly spiced as is most traditional Moroccan food. Highly recommend this spot!

“Amateur food, high price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful atmosphere, but that's the only positive comment I have for the restaurant. Dishes ranged from fair to offensive. At this price point, the quality of ingredients and preparation should be much higher.

“Pretty restaurant - Not great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I'll start with the positive. This restaurant is really pretty and romantic. The live music was great.
However, the food was mediocre, and the service was not friendly. The food just missed the mark, and the spicing was off in all of it. In several of the Moroccan salads, one spice overpowered the others. The specialty is chicken or lamb cooked in a clay pot. That suffered from the same lack of balanced seasoning.

We've had much better food for less money.
