“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Went into this restaurant in Jemma el Fna for lunch on spec and had a delicious meal. We had the menu de jour for 65 dirhams which was three courses - selection of cooked Moroccan salads, chicken with lemon or beef and vegetable couscous and oranges with cinnamon or sweet pastilla. Really good but a bit lonely because we were the only people in there.

“Excellent food on a tourist spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

During our 8 day trip we visited Dar Belkabir twice.

The tajines were great and the portions were good as well. (both beef and chicken)
As said before, the pigeon is not that great and IMHO should be taken from the menu.
I would highly recommend the plum chicken tajine!

Decor is nice and cosy.
Waiters are very kind.

Bottom line: good food for little money.

“excellent tangines and couscous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The briouats, tangines and the couscous was excellent. But the harira soup was disappointing. We went at lunchtime after walking through the souks. We particularly loved the couscous - it just melted in the mouth.

“Authentic Moroccan Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Enhiues dinner here with friends.
Moroccan salads very good. Most of the main courses were good- one diner ha the pigeon and was not impressed, tiny bird with literally 2 mouthfuls of meat! Beef with tomato asn caramelised notions very good. No alcohol. Comfy, basic furnishings, well used, which is good. Not plush but authentic. A bit cold on the night we were there! A god, authentic dining experience, worth going to, and just off the Square

“a hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Fellow riad guests recommended this restuarant to us. Although located on the main square it was still hard to find but well worth the effort. We ate heartily for €7 each...would recommend the beef & veg tagine & beef with prunes tagine both v tasty. Also veg couscous was the best we'd had during our visit. Staff were v discreet altho no english spoken but that caused no problem. Wish we'd found it earlier after several disappointing meals.
