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.

“Beautiful setting, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited for a birthday dinner. You are in the courtyard which has a pool at its heart in this historic and gorgeous rhiad hotel. Service was very attentive and without my asking for anything specific beyond mentioning a birthday all the waiters gathered to sing happy birthday and presented a cake. You choose between a Morrocan or international menu - the tagines were great. Romantic and lovely spot, well worth it.

“Wonderful evening :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We came to have a drink at the Piano Lounge around 9 pm and realizing that we were a little hungry asked if there was a menu - well, the head bartender showed us the menu and it was the dinner menu for the restaurant! We were so surprised and happy to have the empty lounge to ourselves for dinner and the bar right there - impeccable service and wonderful staff in the lounge - definitely worth a visit after the dinner rush!

“Impolite, unexperienced and arrogant waiters”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

After reading the reviews and seeing the pictures on tripadvisor, I e-mailed the manager to inquire for a group dinner for 21 people. He came off as a professional so I made a reservation for the last night of our trip. Entering the beautiful riad you expect a service to match. Unfortunately, this is a good case of why you should never judge a book by it´s cover. The food was so so, nothing special (I´ve had much better for far less). The worst was the staff though. My toes cringed several times witnessing some of the biggest mistakes one can make working in the catering industry. Arguing with the customer at the table the whole evening, blaming your own manager for mistakes made, shouting at the guests who ordered what instead of asking thembefore the food was served, leaving a lady without food after having serving everyone else and finally bringing her the food 15 minutes later, cold soup, arrogant waiter with a very very rude and big mouth. After confronting him with this, I found myself surrounded by 4 other waiters. One finally partially admitted being in the wrong but our evening was already ruined. Unfortunately we left very disappointed and even more insulted when the waiter ran after us accusing us of being 80 dirhams short even though we counted the money three times over. We didn´t leave a tip, maybe he wanted to force that out of us. Such a huge shame for what could be a fairytale experience.
