“Incredible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Perfect service, wonderful place, extremely romantic, however the food was not up to what we had expected. Excellent chicken pastilla though.

“Fantastic food and unbelievable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

From beginning to end I have never received as warm a welcome!

The food was truly amazing, two people, five course and one bottle of lovely Moroccan wine, all for 990 dirhams.

“Elegant and quality dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

This is a stunning Riad. Difficult to find, but isn't everything in Marrakech. It's a set menu of Moroccan specialities, served over 5 courses. It starts with soup, then the pigeon pastry, selection of vegetables, tagine course and then the dessert. It's a massive meal, maybe too much, but the service is excellent and the surroundings are very elegant. It's a special occasion restaurant with bill to go with it. But definitely worth making the trip. Always book, as this place gets busy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Comfortable, elegant, exclusive atmosphere but very friendly -- the owner made a point of meeting everyone after dinner. Superb traditional Moroccan dishes, make sure you pace yourself!
