“Belly Dancing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fantastic food (Lebanese and Moroccan)- Try the lamb and apricot tagine, and all of the appetizers are great (we ate here twice during our visit). Great belly dancers and nice outdoor seating for before and after dinner- hookah if you want it.

“Lovely break from tagines!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Went here after seeing the reviews on here. Service was good, was a little slow at times but think this is common in marrakesh!
Overall the food was delicious and the cocktails were fab. The mixed kebabs were so nice, meat was seasoned well. Our fries were over done which was a bit of a dissapointment but the caramel fondant made up for that when it came to dessert time
If your looking for a break from tagines id recommend you try this place out!

“Outstanding Food, Brilliant Service & Great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We were truely blown away with the whole package.

When we arrived we were given the option of having drinks for 'happy hour' first or having dinner. We had a drink outside in the lovely seated area.

After drinks we ordered several starters, some were small portions some were decent sized but the quality was superb. All dishes seemed very fresh. Would definitely recommend Batata harara, halloumi spring rolls and the lamb shawarma (main)!!

After dinner we had shisha outside as well as desert and they were more than accommodating allowing us to relax and do everything in our own time.

The service was as you'd expect in a top restaurant in England and probably even better!!

It was slightly on the expensive side but well worth it!

“Best restaurant in Marrakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

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!
