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.

“Most romantic setting ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The ambiance at the restaurant, which surrounds a small pool at the hotel, was unbeatable. Exquisite lanterns, warm lighting, live music... It blew me away. The service was also very good. Our food was ok: The mezze appetizers were excellent. The tangines were good, but nothing I would make a trip to this restaurant for exclusively. However, the setting alone is worth the trip, so do not hesitate to go! (Our hotel made a reservation for us)

“very good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great atmosphere inside the Riad La Maison Arabe. Food was good but not great. We both had Tiagines but different styles. This was on the same level as some other tagines so unless I was staying at the Riad La Maison Arabe, it is not extraordinary that I would go out of my way to eat here

“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We didn't stay in the hotel, but were recommended the restaurant by the owner of the Riad where we stayed. Elegant dining by a beautiful pool with traditional live music. We stuck to the Moroccan menu and had 2 great couscous dishes that wowed us. Service gets top marks as well as quality of food and wine. European prices, but a wonderful evening and experience!

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I highly recommend this restaurant. The setting is gorgeous -- alongside a lovely pool in a courtyard garden, with beautiful quiet music being played at one end. The food was delicious -- we especially loved the lamb tajine with oranges. (The lebanese mezze was kind of ordinary -- but it was poor ordering on our part.) All in all, it was delicious and memorable. (It was about a fifteen minute walk from our hotel near the Koutoubia mosque.)
