“Great food, weird vibe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Food was absolutely delicious and great value at 230Dr for the set menu. The lamb spring rolls in particular were a triumph. The atmosphere is not great however as everything is grey and quiet. Slightly strange seating meant we ate while sat on a hard sofa with no back and awkward pillows.

The high grey walls mean there is no view from the roof terrace and these are not even decorated, they are simply prison-like grey walls!

The lack of liquor licence is also a problem as a glass of wine would have been perfect with dinner. Perhaps allowing customers to bring their own wine and charging corkage would be a good idea?

Having said this, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Mama Ti Lee and would recommend it to anyone.

“Lovely and refined menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The Moroccan inspired restaurant was a great find. The space is modern and eclectic. the staff is excellent and speak both French and English. we loved every dish of the menu. The restaurant is a bit difficult to find. I suggest to ask the locals for directions.

“great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Definitely a lovely place. I had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. The tast of the dishes are very well balanced and subtile. I loved the coffee/ chocolate desert. And a good thing too is, it has a really friendly owner. I would go an other time.

“Bland food, empty restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were a bit disappointed in our visit to this restaurant, considering the number of positive reviews it received. On a busy weekend in Marrakech, we were worried about getting a table, but were surprised to find ourselves as the only customers in the place.

The limited set menu was fine for us, but might be problematic for diners wanting a degree of choice. However, the food was rather bland -- not really worth the 20 EUR price being asked, considering the number of good restaurants we visited for much less during our trip.

The rooftop dining area was pleasant and the service adequate, but nothing more. There are better options in Marrakech.

“Lovely and refined food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Refined, Moroccan-inspired food was a delicious find at this hidden-away dinner-only restaurant. The space is modern and eclectic, and the wait staff very on top of things. We loved every dish, but especially the chocolate/coffee parfait that ended the meal. We could have licked the dish clean, it was that good.
