“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

My husand and I ate here on Christmas Eve. We had initially booked another restaurant but after reading its poor reviews on Tripadvisor decided to try Azar's instead as its reviews were much better.

The doorman was very friendly and walking into the restaurant was a 'wow' moment. Amazing decor and atmosphere. We hadn't booked but this wasn't a problem. We were given a great table. For starters we had a selection of Mezze which was so tasy! I had the lamb tagine for my main course and it was absolutely outstanding. It tasted so good I ate it all despite being full and I wanted to savour every mouth full! No room for desert after 2 tasty courses!

The waiters were attentive and friendly. Was the most expensive place we ate in Marrakech but was really good value for money and a definite gastronomic highlight of the trip. I'd love to go back one day!

“Fantastic !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We went there quite early ( around 7.30pm ) and we were worried that it wasn't any good cos there was no one else in this place.

But it turned out to be fantastic night, probably the best restaurant we have been to during our stay in Marrakech. Food was very fresh and tasty. The mocktails were amazing :) not to mention the outstanding dessert and the belly dancing!!!!

“Fave restaurant in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We spent three nights in the city and this was our favorite night spot by far. The decor is trendy/cool, the live music was unbelievable, and the food was great. It's a nice change from tagines and couscous.

“Great atmosphere -- OK food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We went to Azar for a Christmas day meal (Marrakesh does not celebrate Christmas...) and while the ambiance, service and space is really cool and fun, the entrees (Cous Cous Royale and Mixed Grill) were comparatively average, although portions were large. The Appetizers we ordered were good (Kibbeh and Chicken Wings) as was the dessert (cottage cheese with dates, almonds, honey etc.). They also had belly dancers and hookas with a bar on the second floor. Outdoor seating looked good - except was too cold in the winter.

“Excellent all around, highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We ate here twice in a row during our visit in December 2012.
Lovely decor, interesting ambiance, our server was helpful and attentive. The vast selection of Mezze is impressive. We tried about 9 of them and loved them all. The mains were just as delicious. We had cous cous, grilled brochettes and a perfect steak.
The price is very reasonable as well for what you get. There was a live guitar performance one night, and live belly dancing the other night, both very professional, tasteful and well done.
This was by far our best dining experience in Marrakech.
