We decided to include this French cuisine restaurant in our itinerary while in Marrakech as a break from delicious though slightly monotonous Moroccan cuisine.
The hotel is very elegant, especially the exterior, a modern interpretation of a walled Berber village we thought. The restaurant was very international in its decor (elegant and smart - slightly clubby), not a hint of the kasbar, or Arabian Nights! We could have been in Paris or even New York or London. It actually made a nice change for the evening. The china and glass wear was particularly elegant.
Service was a little disappointing - the main waiter we had brought the wrong wine and was a little clumsy in his serving. We had two other waiters as well who were much more polished. The restaurant was not very busy either.
The food was good international fair - the starters were good (beef carpaccio and a goats cheese salad). The mains were good too if unremarkable (chicken and fish). However, the desserts were exceptional, a perfect hand crafted mille feuille and a rich chocolate and coffee torte.
The bill was not overtly expensive (not a budget option either) and it was a refreshing alternative in menus.
