We was recommended this restaurant by a friend as a really nice place to go for food and entertainment in Marrakech. We asked our hotel concierge who were very reluctant against us going saying the place wasn't good at all but we decided to take the chance and go. The restaurant is hard to find and located on a side street so a cab will be your best form of travel to get there. The restaurant itself is very well presented, lovely decor with candles on every table and a live person playing a string musical instrument which sets the atmosphere perfectly. We were seated quickly and given a menu. As Lebanese food lovers there wasn't anything unusual on the menu for starters. You could opt to order your own mezze's or six at a set price but the chef will choose for you. We opted to order our own and went for houmous, Fattoush and Jawaneh chicken wings. The portions are relatively small so order depending on how hungry you are. Bread was provided free, which was nice and soft. The houmous and fattoush were fairly standard but the chicken wings were very tasty. For the mains we decided to go for the mixed grilled as recommended by our waitress and a chicken Tajine. Once again the presentation was very nice of the food. Never having tried a Tajine we were quite impressed with the taste and tenderness of the meat! The mixed grill was also nice with very unique tastes with a selection of three meats. The mains was served with rice or couscous. There was a belly dancing show which unfortunately we couldn't stay for and Shisha and drinks were available upstairs if required. Overall was a very pleasant evening. Can't really justify the negative reviews posted everything lived up from atmosphere to food. Definitely worth a try if out there.
