“Great food, entertaining singers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We came here on a Saturday night and it was packed so I would recommend booking in advance! Unfortunately when we arrived we were presented with a set menu as it was a special event night which we were not made aware of when booking. However, the food that was part of the set menu was excellent. I had chicken spring rolls for starters, monk fish with mashed potato for mains and the chocolate soufflé for dessert. Each course was great with the starter the highlight. The a la carte may be different but the set menu did not have any vegetarian options on for my girlfriend however, the chef prepared a special main just for her which was excellent, the waiting staff were very helpful and friendly the cocktails were also very good.

I think the main people people visit this restaurant is the live music. They had a mix of Motown covers (which whilst not being the best singers were very entertaining), flamenco singers and at one point an acrobatic performance.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Marrakech it is however, outside of the main city and cost us 15 euros each way from the centre of Marrakech but it was worth it. I would recommend booking a return taxi in advance if you are visiting.

Our bill came to about £70 for two people each having the set menu and two cocktails each.

“A trip down memory lane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had dinner at Le Blokk, and while the food is decent the restaurant ambience and entertainment were truly outstanding. The decor is mostly black and white, so you would think you are in an old movie.
There were many bands and solo artists singing Aznavour and Sinatra... And singing quite well I have to say. The finale was a gospel style "we are the world", a bit cheesy I agree but then again who can not like this song. There was also an acrobat dangling herself from ropes in the ceiling.
The funniest part is the Men in Black look alike that greet you on the outside of the restaurant, I so regret not taking a picture with them
Overall a very good night out.

“Best night out in a long time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Made the decision to go to Le Blokk after our Riad owner described its 60/70/80's live music atmosphere as opposed to the belly dancing and late night drinking venues others may know of in Marrakech. Absolutely overjoyed that we made this choice! After a lengthy taxi journey outside of Marrakech to the north-east (we paid 250 dirhams return as arranged by our Riad ower and had Le Blokk call him to pick us up on completion of our night to the south side of the Medina) we were seated front row and centre as we were first there at around 8pm! Not long after arriving did the nights acts begin sound checking with some old Rat Pack numbers. Very relaxing atmosphere and drinks and starters began to flow quickly. All of our food and drink were on recommendation of the most attentive and friendly staff we'd come across in all of Marrakech so far (aside from out Riad's staff that is...). We stayed until 1am and enjoyed every minute of the night. About 10 singers in all performed all through the night and even had some acrobatics from one young gymnast to music. Would recommend the night to anybody, especially couples or groups. Prices were reasonable-high, in comparison to UK prices but totally got your monies worth with the whole package of food/drink/atmosphere. We paid about £150 in total for three courses, two bottles of good rose wine, and a fair few drinks afterwards :-S ... But, all totally worth it and would do it all over again. If we could afford it. :-) ENJOY!

“An alternative Marrakech dining experience at Le Blokk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We went to Le Blokk on the recommendation of a Moroccan friend, and almost turned back as we travelled out of Marrakech, expecting a touristic cliché the further we travelled. Arriving at 8pm, and fifteen minues after settin out, we were the first guests. Another omen? Entering the vast restaurant, the décor was classy minimal, in tones of grey and black, with white and silver highlights on the tables. Then came the menus.
As English-speakers, we were delighted that there was no language gap. Even with the menu. We began with excellent Manhattans (in Maroc) and chose the degustation menu, to be accompanied by a lovely Moroccan red from Volubilis.
Almost immediately the stage that we were facing, lit up and one by one, soloists in formal attire stepped forward to present classics and standards – in English and French. And at a very relaxing sound level.
The meal was seven courses of surprises. Nouvelle, innovative and tasty. Every course explained by our waiter(s). The restaurant was soon packed and the ambience was warm as waiters unobtrusively bustled among the showroom style of tiered dining tables – but definitely not in a Las Vegas packed showroom format.
We departed at 11pm. I understand that patrons stay to enjoy the food and performers until much later. Although we did not experience it, we heard that the formal attire of the performers is replaced by impersonator costumes (such as Elvis) as the night goes on. Such a pity that we had to depart so early, but I would recommend Le Blokk to anybody with a few nights in Marrakech and not wanting to be ethnic at every meal. Prices were reasonable for the quality.
