“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

The food at Chez Yassine is well priced, but unfortunately portion sizes are meager. The rabbit tajine in particular was disappointing, it was effectively a collection of bones swimming in sugary water, and the pasta dish we ordered could have been made by myself at 3am after a heavy night on the sauce, and I'm a terrible cook.

“Exceeded expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We only stopped here one evening for a light bite but were treated to a delicious meal. We started with fresh fruit smoothies, followed by a pizza and a well flavoured rabbit tagine.

Not far off the square, our bill came to 108dh- what a bargain!

“wonderful, clean, family run restaurant, very accommodating staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

great place to eat. reasonable prices, clean inside and you can watch your food eing prepared.
Delicious freshly squeezed juices and the best pancakes ever!
Pizza is delicious and the brochettes were the best we ate.
Family friendly - the staff gave my kids extra juice at no extra cost.
Woudl definitely recommend and a good stopping point just outside the medina, and on the way to jardin majorelle.

“Cheap and tasty, great combination!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

A lovely, small restaurant with excellent food and friendly service.

Althought it's located close to the Koutoubia Mosque, we actually had a hard time finding it. We couldn't see it the first time and the second time we happened to walk past it and I suddenly saw on a piece of paper 'Chez Yassine'. When you come from the Mosque it is located on your left side.

Tagines were only priced at about 30 dirham and they offer combinations you don't normally find at e.g Djemaa El-Fna square. Tagine portions are quite small, especially for dinner, so my friend had to order a second one. He didn't mind though as it was so yummy, he actually became lyrical about it.

As for me, I ordered the mixed skewers and they were grilled on a charcoal grill next to the door. It includes 4 skewers, warm vegetables, fries and bread for about 45 dirham. Normally, I have a hard time finishing my plate, but here I just finished the lot. It was that good!

Other food on the menu includes pizza's, pasta's panini's, ...

“You feel like a local here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

As a tourist in Marrakesh, you, at times, get food and a service which is a little disappointing, e.g. in the main square the food in some booths are overcooked and the service treats you like cattle. (Not all, just some). We found Chez Yassine and it was so welcome. It became our local luncheon! Lalla, the manager and cook is sweet, patient and welcoming. You can relax and not feel that you have to go as soon as you have taken your last bite! Food is fresh, which takes a little longer but is very worth it! And the price is very reasonable, about 4 GBP with drinks.And that's with 2 mains! Mains are not big, but its cheap enough to get another and another! We even came really late and hungry and she still made us food after we shared some with her and her lovely colleague. If you are in the area, go and eat at Yassine. Its just what you need
