“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

La Sultana was recommended to us as a great venue for dinner in Marrakech and we were not disappointed. The venue was just stunning - so beautiful; the food was fabulous - the best we had in Marrakech by a comfortable distance (strongly recommend the 'Tasting Menus' - have one of each and share them); the staff were very professional, attentive, polite and welcoming.

Once the meal was over we were given a tour of the hotel and it was spectacular. If we return to Marrakech this is the place we want to stay.

The whole experience was just wonderful. Not cheap, but worth every penny. We loved it!!

“Beautiful terrace restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We had a lovely dinner here. As a moroccan I know quite well the difference between what tourists are served up in the square and what authentic moroccan is, and this is really it! It tasted just like home. Delicious moroccan courses in great portions will have you unwilling to move. We had the wood pigeon pie and beef tajine, and some moroccan mezze. Delicious! The terrace was stunning with a night view over the medina. The oud player was very talented and played some arabic classics really well. The service was impeccable and the waiter spoke great english for my guest. We were the last people to leave and they waited on us out of sight allowing us to enjoy the terrace and appeared only when we had decided to head home. Very discreet. We also had the pleasure of watching a moroccan wedding procession happening down bellow. It was magical really. After the dinner we were given a tour of the stunning riad. All in all a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone in Marrakech for friends, family or couples.

“A special meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My friends and I decided to have a special evening out on our last night in Marrakech. We chose the Restaurant of La Sultana based on the reviews and its location close to our riad. We were not disappointed. From the time we arrived the service was attentive and professional. The setting is wonderful and the food excellent. While not cheap (we paid about AU$60 per head) I would say this is one of the best meals I have eaten. Certainly worth it.

“Wow Tres Magnifique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This amazingly beautiful riad/restaurant is set back out of a bustling busy street in the Kasbah area. From the moment you walk down the red carpet, the decor, lighting and music all combine in a feast for the senses. The food, while fairly expensive by Moroccan standards, is no more than you would pay for a meal in Australian/European cities, but is so much better than more expensive meals I have eaten! In fact I would have to say this was one of the best meals I have ever had (spinach risotto with the most amazing champagne cream sauce!). The service was incredible too, and nothing was too much trouble. Could not recommend this highly enough!
