“Lovely ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We sort out the restaurant by day but there was no need as when we arrived outside the maze of alleys that lead to the restaurant, there was a "greeter" who guide us. The atmosphere was pleasant and the tables were set around to central courtyard.
The service was professional and attentive.
Wine was reasonably priced and the menu was as to be expected...same as everywhere else we have eaten, but the food was tasty.
The price was fair.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

It certainly isn't easy to find. We walked past the little lane to it twice but we were so pleased we persevered. It's a lovely setting. We were encouraged to look around the house which was lovely with a great open roof which you could walk round and see the rest of the medina from. The food was a set menu with a few choices for each course. Included in the cost was an appartif, bottle of wine and traditional tea after the meal. The food was lovely and very authentic. We had a selection of cold starters, chicken tangine and then a sweet pastry dessert. There was also nibbles and breads served to us. The services was very refined. It certainly made us feel that we were really getting a true morrocan experience. And the cost was very reasonable. We would definitely recommend a visit. I would say it was my favorite experience while I was in Marrakech. Just to make our visit even more pleasant when we left the restaurant the manager came out with us and we thought he was going to direct us to where we could get a taxi. What he actually did was take us to his car and then drive us back to our hotel himself. He would accept nothing in return for his generous actions so I would like to say a special thank you to him.

“Quiet and Calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

I would recommend this restaurant for visitors who are not greatly experienced in Moroccan food.
The food is simple, classic and good. The ambiance is quiet and restrained and thankfully does not have the theatre and razzmatazz that some of its competitors 'boast'.
The French only menu could be better explained, some English guests were complaining about the price but patently did not understand everything that the price included ; pre-dinner drinks & appetizers, three dinner courses, water, a bottle of wine and coffee. We thought this was very good valueindeed.
The staff were excellent, unobtrusive with good interpersonal skills.
An enjoyable, relaxing, quiet evening.

“Best place in Marrakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

This restaurant is amazing! It's tricky to find it but luckily a man from the restaurant was waiting for us and guided us! The place is an old private home and everything feels so authentic! We hade the gastronomic menu which was around 500 dirham, then you got an 8 course menu with cocktails, wine and water and it was amazing! The tagine and couscous was the best I had In marrakech! It's a lot of food, we couldn't finished al so come hungry :D
