We have had a few days in Marrakech with some friends and wanted something special for our last night and this restaurant certainly fitted the bill. The dining room is below ground level but overlooks a lovely courtyard and is very plushly furnished whilst maintaining a Moroccan feel.
Service was attentive, friendly, polished and most importantly prompt, although we fined early by Moroccan standards (7:30) so there was only one other table occupied when we sat down. The menu offered a number of Moroccan starters and tangines and a few more European options. There was also a reasonable list of mainly Moroccan wines.
We had been eating at the street cafes so were craving some more sophisticated dining and were not disappointed. We all ordered tangines of various sorts and all were a cut above the simple food we had been eating. We were also treated to complimentary starters and Morroccan sweets with our coffee at the end if our meal which we couldn't finish! We had a Grenache blend which was quite pleasant although at around $40 was expensive for what it was. The females were offered roses as we left!
Overall we spent around 400d (about $60) a head which is very expensive by Moroccan standards, but quite reasonable for the standard of the food and the ambiance of this beautiful restaurant.
