“Has Lost None Of Its Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A real treat. We first ate here ten years ago. A decade later it has lost none of its charm. The petit menu was more than enough. The sevice is simply first class.

“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We were just out wandering, looking for something to eat, when we came across a sign to Ksar Es Saoussan. We had come across it on Tripadvisor and had decided to eat there but as often happened to us in our meanderings through the souk we came across it unexpectedly. What a find. We were led down a narrow alley into this absolutely divine palace. The staff were delightful-unobtrusive but there when you needed them. We had the small fixed menu and could not do it justice. The food was beautifully cooked and tasted delicious. I really cannot fault this place.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant because of some of the good reviews on here, we wish that we hadn't bothered.
It's a beautiful inside & the staff we're friendly but it just a tourist trap. We had the smallest set menu which cost 700 Dirham in total (about £55.00) it certainly wasn't worth the money.
All the alcohol that was included tasted really watered down. The meat dishes were fatty & the slarters were just like cold slop dosh!
It's difficult to find & not worth it once you get there which is a real shame.

“AVOID!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is in a lovely building but the food was terrible! Traditional Morroccan salad which was basically 8 different types of boiled veg. We were also given a tray of olives to start which were lovely but the main dish was chicken tagine which was basically chicken with olives. Very average to say the least.
