“Good local foot at affordable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

The food here was really nice, the service great and they didn't over-charge our bill as we heard that other restaurants do.

“Who reviewed this restaurant?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We booked this restaurant based solely on the great reviews and high ranking. No idea who reviewed it before but it was terrible. How it got number 13 ranking is beyond me.
Firstly there is a large wall mounted TV showing football and tables and chairs that resemble a UK caffe. No alcohol although this is not too surprising. No atmosphere at all. No locals either - every customer spoke English.
The olives that came first were fine. We had calamari sautéed in garlic which was ok but not great. The main courses were chicken and citrus tangine. The chicken was so dry and chewy we left 90%. The grilled lamb chops came with some veg, salad and chips. The chops were fatty, chewy, stringy. The only nice food on the plates were the chips (French fries). No one bothered to ask us about the food or if we enjoyed it.
Please avoid this restaurant and don't waste your money. It bears no resemblance to a real moroccan restaurant on any level. Yes it's cheap but you get what you pay for.

Good moroccan tajines, lovely stuff and good music. I'm in love with this restaurant. I will certainly come back next time I visit Marrakech

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Me and my wife were out in Marrakech for our anniversary. We were walking past, looking for a nice restaurant, when we came across Eveil Des Sens. The staff were great, my wife is a veggie, so the waiter took his time explaining what was ok for her on the menu. They even went out of their away and made a dish specially for her. the food was great and for 160 D, about £14 for 3 courses for two people, all can say is absolutely fantastic! Definitely highly recommended,

“Exceptional value and great quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We hadn't intended eating here, but the restaurant we had picked was getting some poor reviews so a quick scan of trip-advisor in the hotel led us to this restaurant.

I'm glad we found it, very glad!

Tucked away down a street off the main avenues but well worth looking for and finding.

Anywhere that is popular with locals is always a good sign in my book and this was popular! There were two seating areas and we opted for indoors as outdoors was pretty full.

The menu isn't huge but does offer a wide range of foods, so should keep nearly everyone happy.

We opted for the 70dirham set menu - 3 courses and a choice of at least 4 dishes on each course!

The food was was full flavoured and the portion size was very good! So good I did actually have to leave some of the main to fit in dessert.

The dessert does deserve a mention...it was only creme caramel but it was, or at least appeared to be, made on the premises and the taste was out of this world.

Service was prompt and the staff were very friendly.

This is one restaurant we would really recommend you dig out and find if in Marrakech, at the prices they charge you simply can't go wrong and it has the quality of food to ensure a good meal.
