“Brilliant Experience - one not to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Our cab driver left us outside the arch to the medina without clear instructions on where to go. 8 women in high heels trotting on cobbled stones looking for a resturant must have looked a sight and hence the reason for the crowds of people that suddenly surrounded us. Thoughts did run through our mind on what we had let ourselves into. Once we found the resturant and stepped through the door we were taken up to the terrace...a whole cloud just lifted. This was the best experience while in Marrakech, food was fabulous and the resturant and service was amazing. We were celebrating the special birthday of 2 friends and the night was perfect from the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left. Food was presented very well and exceptional for the price.
We were looked after very well and there was no pressure for us to leave straight after the meal so we sat on the roof terrace. I picked this restuarant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and I would thoroughly recommend that you visit this restuarant on your trip.

“Very romantic and gourmet meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

While staying at La Maison Arabe, we asked the concierge to book us for dinner at Gastro MK. He said to go at 8:30 but it was 8:00 so we booked for the next night. We were told we could come at 7:30ish for drinks on their rooftop. The concierge sent us with an " escort " to walk us to Maison MK!!
It was a 5-8 min. walk. The riad was so beautiful, traditional and contemporary at the same time. Beautiful rooftop bar! After drinks and starters, we were escorted down to the dining area which was very romantic around a tiny pool with a fireplace. Then we understood that they serve all the guests at 8:30, one seating for the night.
As was our experience in Morocco, the service was very friendly and attentive. We were really wowed with the food, did not expect such gastronomy here! Everything we had was delicious. Moroccan ingredients with a modern technique, like a "de-constructed" pastilla, and the tarte Tatin was incredible. Even though we're not much for desserts, we ate it all!!.
Chef Omar ( I hope I remembered his name correctly) came to do the rounds at the end of the meal and was very friendly to everyone. It was the highlite of our meals in Morocco. Unforgettable!!

“Superb - you must eat here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Best restaurant in Marrakech without a doubt - wonderful Moroccan food, amazingly presented in a beautiful building.

Good value for the price you pay, very attentive staff who looked after us superbly. Vegetarian options were provided without any trouble, as was a fan to cool down Europeans not used to the heat! Pre- and post-dinner drinks on roof terrace were lovely as well.

Highly recommended!

“Marrekech is an experience that should be experienced by all mankind. MK is a small part of that exceptional, hedonistic journey”

Stunning experience that could have been enhanced if dinner was served on the roof terrace. Exemplorary in every other way.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had dinner but the hotel itself was beautiful! I would have liked the opportunity to stay there as it was lovely. The food was very good, per dinner drinks on the roof terrace was a great touch. The service was excellent, the courses well set out and the staff very attentive but still allowed for plenty of privacy. I would definitely recommend Gastro MK to anyone visiting Marrakech.
