Chez Mado is not difficult to find but is in a quiet side street. The decor is modern and crisp in tones of red and brown and the service is friendly and efficient.
Inside the front cover of the menu is the story of Mado (Madeleine - the chef's grandmother) after whom the restaurant is named. It is a lovely story of how she arrived in Morroco with her husband and opened La Bonbonniere hotel and restaurant in Cassablanca and the photos on the walls continue the dedication to Mado and her work.
There were several dishes not on the menu the evening we were there but the food we had was excellent - probably the best Caesar salad I have ever had and the John Dory with Churizo was very well prepared. We had the soufflé with Grand Marnier for dessert which required an additional 20 minutes to cook but was absolutely a little piece of heaven! We had both ordered it but due to a mistake in the kitchen only one was cooked. However, it was huge so we were not disappointed! We were offered a couple of Limoncellos by way of apology as well.
This would definitely be a regular haunt if I lived in Marrakech. Sadly I don't have that option but I am delighted we had the opportunity to dine Chez Mado!
