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.

“One but nor twice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We were recommended to go check La Maison Arabe, and we were first very impressed by the environment. It looks fabulous.
The negative points came from the maitre D, who was "sugar coating" every sentence, which might have sound nice at the beginning, but it then very quickly became over the top, and we were just trying to escape having him coming to our table.
The menu itself looks great and we were really looking forward to try it all...again the menu on paper was much better than the actual dishes. Pata negra wasn't pata negra, vacherin was just a scoop of ice cream, blanc manger was whipped cream...we mentioned our feedbacks, and they kindly did not charge our desert (kind gesture) and offered us mint tea (no taste no sugar no mint?) and moroccan pastries (more like dry biscuits). Even if efforts was put to cover up, it was a disappointment overall and we wont go back.

“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.
