“Truly Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This really is a "must do" whilst in Marrakech.

I booked this for my first anniversary and it met and exceeded all expectations. Be sure to get there early and make the most of the roof top terrace for drinks.

The setting was delightful and we were given a wonderful table that felt like a secret cavern just for the two of us. Very exclusive. The two tables by the pool are also wonderful. The service is second to none and nothing is to much trouble.

The food is exceptional in terms of quality and presentation. The broccoli and blue cheese soup was the best I have tasted. The sea bass cooked to perfection. Portion size was perfect and you certainly feel "full" on departure. We were even treated to a surprise extra anniversary dessert. It was such a lovely touch and quite unexpected.

There is simply nothing to criticise. It was perfect from start to finish.

As for it being hard to find... If you are dropped off at the right gate it is actually quite simple and there are plenty of locals willing to help you. We actually went on a mission to find it the day before our meal so we didn't waste any time getting lost in the maze that is the medina !!!!!!!

Enjoy. We certainly did.

“Cool place with a gorgeous menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Taking the advice of fellow Trip Advisors we decided to celebrate my friend's birthday at Maison MK. We loved the aperitifs and canapés on the roof top terrace and enjoyed discovering the mouthwatering tastes of the following courses.

An excellent evening, with wonderful food and excellent service. Our best night out in Marrakech.

“Well worth the search!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Amazing experience! Delicious food served in a wonderful relaxed manner with just the right amount of time between courses. The "pool" tables are the best.....great watching the giant yellow rubber duck floating around! Next time we will stay here. The rooms are a sensational mix of cool and Moroccan.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I visited MK after reading some reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. When we arrived we were greated and shown to the roof top terrace for some canapés and drinks. We were then shown to the restaurant where we embarked on a 5 course meal which was absolutely delicious. You have to choose your main and then everything else is already preselected for you but the combination of foods flavours and presentation was just great. After being in Marrakech for 4 nights already it was so nice to find a restaurant where there was more choice than just 'tagine'. This restaurant served duck, sea bass, asparagus parcels you name it they came up with it.

A little on the pricey side for 2 people who were not really drinking alcohol our bill came to £115.00 but I would definately recommend it as I enjoyed the food that much. My only criticism would be its location. You will probably find this being the case with a lot of restaurants in Marrakech that you have to walk through some very narrow roads near the square to find these places, however the email reservation with the directions were absolutely spot on and we had no trouble whatsoever finding it.

A very nice touch was at the end our meal the chef came out to speak to all the tables and asked each of us how we found the food and if we had any suggestions to have made the experience better which is not something you often experience which I thought was just lovely.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Not disappointed having read all previous reviews. Worth arriving the hour beforehand for drinks and canapés on the beautiful roof terrace. Views of the sun going down were spectacular. The restaurant was difficult to find - be warned. Get taxi man to escort you to door or use GPS on phone. This really is an oasis. Restaurant very tastefully done and food was very good. Service was excellent in all respects.
