My wife and I dined here the night before we left Marrakech. Having had 3 days of exploring the Medina and beyond, we opted for this restaurant based on reputation for quality ingredients made into authentic cuisine (and not priced with "tourist tax" either).
Even though it was a bit cool, maybe upper 50's, we dined on the roof terrace within one of the tented booths that line the sides. The open terrace is quite lovely, and I'm sure this place cranks in the spring and fall months when the weather is optimal.
My wife and I wanted to have some traditional lamb tagine, since we had only had chicken up to this point. We ordered "pastilla de poulet" and "3 salades marocaines" appetizers, with the pastilla combining the sweet and savory flavors perfectly (ask them for some housemade chile pepper sauce, it's outstanding with this dish!). The 3 salads was a combo plate of carrot salad, potato salad, and eggplant salad, very savory and delicious.
For our entree, we shared the "tagine d'agneau pruneaux et amondes" which is traditional combo of lamb, prunes and almonds. A delicious balance of savory and a touch of sweet, with the almonds providing some crunch. This was obviously slow-cooked to perfection, as the "crunchy bits" on the bottom of the clay tagine were seriously addictive - like the prize at the bottom of a Crackerjack box!
You should definitely check this place out as a dining destination, well worth seeking within the confusing streets of the souks!
