“Vastly (?) over-priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Gastro MK yesterday. We went as it was listed 1st in Trip Advisor's chart of Marrakech restaurants. It's conveniently placed in the medina and easy to find. Once inside, the renovations are fabulous, with lots of style and colour; it must be a wonderful place to stay. Reserving by phone with Hanane was a charming and friendly experience.

Aperififs and canapes were served on the beautiful roof terrace but it was just too cold so we were shown to our table downstairs in one of several warm, discreet and intimate dining rooms. The food on the obligatory 5 course tasting menu was for the most part delicious, although somewhat fussy and over-refined. Nouvelle cuisine making a belated comeback! Presentation of the lamb, for example, was odd: scrapings shaped on the plate; one of our group commenting that if he'd seen a photo of the dish he wouldn't have chosen it!

Service was friendly and professional, nothing like as pompous as Casa Lalla used to be, but the bill was simply twice as much as you would expect to pay for a similar gastronomic experience in Marrakech. Nothing about the food, service or ambiance should discourage you from trying it; just the cost!

“1001 night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

we visited mk two times. first time to check the restaurant, second time to spend the anniversary evening of my wife. both times we had great dinners and wonderful evenings. it starts with the place of mk. inside the medina, the last meters you have to go by foot. then you ring the bell and enter a very special place. attentive waiters accompany you to the roof, where you are overlooking marrakesch. there you start your evening with a drink and a starter. later you take place downstairs in the small, but perfect furnished restaurant. all what was serviced, also the way it was serviced, was made with imagination and perfect prepared. o.k., you have to pay for it, but the atmosphere, the service and the quality of the food is it worth. we enjoyed the evenings very well.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Wow this place is special!
I would consider myself a bit of a foodie, but I never expected to find the quality and sheer perfection that we received in Mk!
From the first impressions and welcome to the mind blowing setting, the food in my opinion is of Mitchelin star quality!
And to discover that it's a hotel also. If we were to return to Marrakech we would definitely stay here!
Although we only booked dinner, on arrival we were given the grande tour and it was extremely impressive!
Then we were taken up to the roof top garden, with stunning views of Marrakech twinkling in the night and where there was a cocktail bar and we received canapés and viewed the menu.
As I said the food is of mitchelin star quality so don't save yourself for the main course as the menu is perfectly balanced leaving you perfectly satisfied after each course.
The chef even came out and met us all after the meal. The restaurant/ hotel has a relaxing room you can go and unwind after your meal. We went and tried their hubby bubbly there after which was a fun experience.
If visiting Marrakech you simply Must eat here! I have no hesitation in saying that!
