“First Night In Marrakesh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

The hotel concierge easily booked us a table for dinner on a Monday night. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived and was only partially full for the entire time we were there. It was easy for taxi driver to find and we were able to hail a taxi easily for the ride back to the hotel after dinner.

Restaurant is definitely for tourists as there were no locals present. The service was good as was the food although it was a bit pricey. We get in mind is the ambiance was nice. The decor was elaborate and there was even a treat of a belly dancer show halfway through our meal.

We stayed to enjoy a shisha pipe after dinner and then had dessert. The dinner was nice enough although like I said the value was not great. For us it was a great first night in Marrakesh.

“A nice restaurant with high standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The food and the service were really good. The venue is cosy and will remind you of places in the West. It's a lebanese restaurant though, so don't expect typical maroccan food.

“fun evening out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We chose Azar because we love meze and wanted a change from tagine!
We arrived early for cocktails and just enjoyed the glitzy atmosphere and people watching
The food was excellent quality, service was good, ambience great
Would definitely recommend if you want something un-moroccan for a change!

“Could be in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We found this restaurant in our guide book and didn't expect it to be as glamorous as it is! It felt like walking in to a top notch restaurant in the centre of London. The prices however were very good. We ended up eating at this restaurant 3 times. Lebanese food is my favourite food and they had all my favourite dishes. Would definitely recommend it!

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Lovely restaurant , beautiful inside and out. Had a lovely evening with good service and amazing food. Would recommend it as a top class restaurant for Moroccan and Lebanese food to any one who comes here. Think even Gordon Ramsay would be impressed.
