“Geeat food but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Came here for an evening meal. The selction of food on offer is a mix between Lebanese and Morrocon and all three dishes were tasty. I had the lamb tagine with honey, almonds and apricots, it was fantastic. Unfortunately service was slow at times but polite none the less. I would definitely avoid eating around 10pm when the belly dancers come out, it is very very loud and most definitely makes the dining experience feel tacky.

“Good value meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Attentive staff. Good cocktails although beware ordering cocktails in happy hour. It's buy one get one free per person rather than split between members of the party. Easy to find. Tasty food. Atmospheric but didn't stay for the belly dancers so can't comment on this.

“Good experience, but average main courses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Started sitting in the mezzanine drinking the 2-4-1 cocktails which were lovely. the service was very attentive and the atnosphere was perfect. we moved inside for dinner, once again the atmosphere was really good - there was music in the background with dim light and the service again was great. We chose the 6 mezze to start plus one extra - they were great and actually quite filling! For mains i had the mixed grill which was ok considering i had the same thing at the kasbah cafe for a lot less money, portion size was good. My husband had the royal coucous which was a massive portion and rather bland. We were expecting a lit from the food but it wasnt the best. I completely agree with another reviewer thst the food scores low and the place/service scores high.
I had been looking forward to the belly dancers as this was something different, however we did not really enjoy it - it kind of ruined the atmosphere and cheapened the place. We quickly left, as did others.
Overall, a good experience while in marrakech though!
