“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We wanted something quite light to eat at around 9pm in the evening and had passed by this little restaurant earlier in the day. We thought the menu looked like a nice change from traditional Moroccan food so we checked TA and found it well rated and thought we would give it a try. We sat right at the top of the building on the rooftop terrace with only two other tables occuped. We ordered cream of carrot soup with almonds which was OK but lacking in much flavour. We followed this with a duck and goats cheese salad and a "Thai" chicken dish. The salad was sprinkled with balsamic vinegar, a few meagre slices of smoked duck, walnuts that tasted mouldy and goats cheese sandwiched in the middle of small choux pastry buns that were dry and burned in their bases. The Thai chicken was not remotely resembling Thai food and was accompanied by some kind of sauce that had more in common with an oxo cube than anything else. We did pass our comments on to the owner who apologised and said that they would revise the sauce or not call the dish Thai chicken. Perhaps we just went on a bad day or too late but from our experience we certainly couldn't recommend.

“Lovely food and setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

When in Marrakech we visited this place twice because the food and service were so good. All the food we tried was well cooked and delicious, and the desserts were AMAZING! Compared to a lot of other restaurants we found in Marrakech, this place offered incredible value for money and a really lovely atmosphere to enjoy an evening meal, lunch or coffee and snack. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We celebrated our new years' eve at the restaurant. The menu was a bit pricey but well worth the money. The restaurant has three floors and I think the terasse would be very nice during warmer periods. Instead we chose the second floor which was nice and a little like eating in a living room.
The service was excellent and professional and so was the food.

“Eating here twice a day says it all..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stumbled upon this place en route to the Place Jemaa El Fna. We sat on the roof top terrace..
I ate a salad of duck, orange, walnuts and delicious little goat cheese profiteroles that were so light and fluffy and such a pleasant surprise. As we ate I watched other meals being delivered to tables around me and I wanted each of them so we returned again and again.. We began having our dessert in the afternoon with coffee and I made it through a good selection of the desserts and was absolutely satisfied with all I had.. We ate in many places around Morroco but loved returning here for the well priced, well flavored and very consistent food. The staff were all attentitive and Anne downstairs is such a delight.
Will return again tomorrow for one last coffee and dessert before we depart for Australiaonce again.
