“Excellent- And with a party member with a life threatening food allergy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Firstly and most importantly for us Maison MK handled our daughters life threatening nut allergy- faultlessly. We all ate relaxed knowing that chef and staff alike were only too aware of the severity of our daughters food allergy.

In addition, from the moment our emails (relating to daughters allergy) started to the time we left Maison MK, we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience- attentive, warm, friendly yet professional staff. Delicious and artistically presented food, jaw dropping interior and our youngest-loved the ipods in the rooms!

We were seriously impressed with all aspects and upon our return, will definitely visit again.

We had a memorable family night out.

“Warmest welcome in marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Easily the best place to eat/stay in Marrakech . After trying a couple of recommended restaurants , AlFassia and Le Comptoir , where they served traditional Moroccan food , i.e Tagine's and where service levels were pretty poor and even after eating at la Mamounia for lunch , Gastro MK is an unrivalled shining star in Marrakech . MK is exactly what we needed to unwind and relax after the mayhem that is the Medina . Make sure you print out the map from the web site , because even though it is only a few meters away from the taxi drop off point it would be pretty easy to get lost and then have to rely on one of the numerous Moroccan’s offering to help you get to " MK " .
But once you ring the bell and the door opens you are in a different world .This is true 5 star service . The warmth of the welcome from the staff on the rooftop bar more than made up for the rather chilly night we were there , the decor of the hotel and restaurant is breathtaking , a lot of thought , time and money has gone into making every visitor realise that this is 5 star Morocco . The star of the show is the food with a fixed menu where the choice is of meat/fish or vegetarian main course , every dish had a wow factor . My personal highlight was one of the appetizers , Pumpkin and leek veloute , which does not sound that fantastic , but the favour of this soup deserves a Michelin star on its own . But every dish was amazing and Omar the chef came out at the end of the night to chat to each of the guests . if you get the chance , read the book about how Maison MK was established , the photo of the fire extinguisher on the wall sums up Morocco to a tee . Maison/Gastro MK have succeeded in delivering a true 5 star experience that sadly can not be matched by many other so called 5 star establishments elsewhere in town.
This is a must see on any trip to Marrakech.

“Should have a Michelin Star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This was easily the best restaurant during out 4 day stay in the city. We had no prior reservation, but manager Hanana managed to squeeze us in. She's a good communicator. It is easy to find in the medina, just off the main road. We had a wonderfull dinner here. Dishes like 'Fresh mango Juice with Verbena Foam and spiced cucumber sorbet' where even better than the name promised. From start to finish, this was a mindblowing dinner, set in a great ambiance with very attentive waiters en chef. The atmosphere is somewhat subdued, really romantic. Accompanied by good Moroccan wine, this was an eating experience I'm not likely to forget anytime soon. This chef should have a star, but I'm glad Michelin didn't find the way to Marrakech: the price (55 euro for a 5 course meal) would probably skyrocket. Heartily recommended.

“Maison MK Cookery Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Visited Marrakech last weekend and had a recommendation from a friend to do a cooking class at Maison MK. I can't say that we were in any way disappointed. As with anywhere in Marrakech, finding your way around is a little difficult but we were called the day before to reconfirm and given clear instructions to find the Riad. We had printed recipes on arrival of what we would be cooking and had personal attention throughout from the head chef on preparing traditional Moroccan salads, a lamb tagine, bread and mint tea. It was a very fun and relaxed morning, and we will definitely be attempting all of our courses at home ... hopefully with the same level of success! We were given really good hints and tips throughout the class (including, for me, how to chop onions properly!!). And when we had made the bread dough we were taken to the local ovens around the corner which all the riads and residents use - a great experience to see how this all works and watching your bread go in this huge oven! And it all tasted delicious when we ate it at lunch. Would recommend this very personal cooking class (they only take two at a time so you get maximum attention at all times).
