This place was amazing, we went for my boyfriend's birthday and I wish we'd gone again for mine instead of the totally sub-par Le Marrakchi (especially as the prices are pretty similar)
Firstly, when you arrive, you didn't have to go straight inside, but could sit outside smoking shisha and drinking cocktails, which were presented really well. My boyfriend's were served out of a Moroccan teapot, and I was casting an envious eye at the next table where they were served in an awesome looking cube-like glass. They were pretty tasty too, mine was a really lovely lychee margharita.
Service is excellent. Culterally I think Moroccan service is generally slow, which is nice and relaxing, but can be irritating when you want a drink, or to order more bread or your bill. At, Azar you only had to empty your glass and they'd be topping it up with more wine before you'd put it down. Even better, they managed to do it in that totally unobtrusive way you only get with really good service.
The food was totally to die for, everything was so perfectly cooked.
The only down-side were the belly-dancers, I felt they stayed out just a bit too long and personally I prefer the Moroccan musicians, like the Berber music to belly-dancing, but that's just a small niggle, and you could tell that there were very skilled dancers.
If you want to go anywhere for a special meal while in Marrakech this is the place to come!
