This is another restaurant which you would never find without a taxi driver or by accident. It is a very modern chic place which would not be out of place in any UK city. It was also the first place in Marrakech where the lighting was bright enough to read the menu without squinting!
The service was brisk from a young waitress who spoke only French, so help in explaining the menu was from the owner who was courteous & helpful. The wine waiter was a Craig David lookalike who was friendly & attentive.
There were 3 veggie starters & one veggie main. The rest of the menu was steak & fish based. I chose creamed lentil, bacon & onion starter which came as a soup & was tasty. My husband had prawn cocktail which was shrimps & avocado, fairly average.
My main was carpaccio which I liked, my husband had chateaubriand which he had to return as it was undercooked, but after kitchen apologies returned cooked ok. We didn't have a pudding, & had a red wine from the middle of the list which was Moroccan & a reasonable £13.
We had coffee & my husband asked for Americano. However, the waitress misinterpreted thus for a cocktail on the menu of the same name. We didnt complein & thought it was funny, but the owner went away and gave us both coffees & the cocktail free if charge, which he didn't have to but was a nice gesture.
The only negative was the atmosphere. I can't put my finger on it as everything seemed right; lighting, music, busy, service, but no buzz. Having said that it certainly wouldn't stop me recommending a visit or returning there myself.
