“Excellent food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had our best meal in Marrakech at Riad El Fenn. The service was nice, but not much English was spoken here, mostly French. I had the el fenn burger (beef plus lamb) and it was the best burger I ever had (of all the places in the world). The chicken salad, sea bass and salmon ordered by the rest of the family were very good as well. The prices were slightly high for Marrakech, but not all that bad for the quality of the food. A nice break from the Moroccan food that we had for 3 straight days. Highly recommended, but the place is small so you should get a reservation if you know when you will be eating there. It was not very noticeable from the street (a very small sign), but it was very close to our riad and right next to our place for our daily coffee, so we had no problem finding the place.

“The best in Marrakech !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Great food, great ambience, great service and excellent location. The prices are very reasonable - a three course meal for about 30 Euros without wine. I would not hesitate recommending this restaurant.

“Gone was the umbrella”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

It is a funky place.Surprising in its decoration,and,for the service.As usual,the Morrocans are kind,yet ,often not up to par.El Fenn is luxury,also in its prices.The service is average.The bar is located practically in the restaurant.If you have a drink you watch the diners,whether you like to or not,or the other way around.It seems to be British clients oriented,since the owner is from the island,yet the owner seems to be absent often .I went with friends to dinner a few weeks ago:the waiters were unattentive,never asked whether we like the food and the wine we had to serve ourselves.It was raining.When we left,the umbrella was gone,and someone promised to call the next day.Never did.One day I was there,they did not want to be paid
in cash,only credit cards,the next cash was fine.As above:everyone was smiling,but efficiency suffered.

A magical place, where people were so welcoming that we couldn't even leave them !!

Rooms are unbelievable, like the one with the private swimming pool up the room.
