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.

“Romantic ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

On the expensive side compared with other local restaurants. Food was good and all six of us had a lovely meal that evening. It offers both international and local cuisine.

“The best part is the charming patio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This restaurant is placed in the patio of the five-star riad La Maison Arabe, at a walking distance from the Koutoubia and Jeema ElFna. The atmosphere is breathtaking, as the tables are beside a pool in the middle of the patio. Apart from that, the quality and the selection of the food is not significantly different from cheaper restaurants available in the area. As a consequence, most of the price you pay is for the location, whereas the food is not particularly appealing -- I mean, nothing to complain of, but certainly overpriced.

“Great food and ambience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Breakfast was very good and a change from the usual. It was a mixture of continental and Morrocan. We had lovely fresh juices from the usual orange all the way to freshly squeezed beetroot. The homemade yoghurt with the fruit compote (they called it jam) is a must. By evening the restaurant was transformed into a tranquil, romantic, candlelit setting with traditional berber musicians playing by the pool at one end. Service was excellent and quick. I had the best tagine I had come across during my stay. It was lamb with almonds and saffron. By far the best food we had in Morrocco. The manager called Badr was very passionate about good service and he and his staff had the balance just right. We were so impressed that we asked Badr to join us for dessert and coffee. Definitely recommend this place.

“Good food great ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We ate here on our stay in Marrakech. Food was good with a reasonable selection of Moroccan, French and Asian cuisine. Also a reasonable selection of wine. As with many places in Marrakech the approach to it down an alleyway leaves you wondering where you are going but once there, the setting is excellent, the ambience good and the service friendly. One to try if you are staying in the vicinity

“Solid for guests of the hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Good food and excellent service. We stayed in the hotel and ate here for lunch twice and dinner once. I recommend it but would probably not go out of my way to eat here if I wasn't staying at the hotel, mostly because the ambience feels more like a hotel than a restaurant and I preferred the pure restaurants we visited.
