“Better than the reviews suggest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

As the title of this review states, I had high expectations so was very happy to report that the meal was better than expected. Originally myself and my wife had emailed booking the reservation and wanted to ensure due to my wife's nut allergy that this could be catered for. I was very happy when they consulted with the head chef and replied they could.

The actual meal consists of canapes and drinks on the rooftop terrace, then you are led down to the ground floor where you are treated to 5 courses of Moroccan inspired cuisine. Every dish was fantastic (particularly the puddings) and the service was attentive but not obtrusive.

It is a little more expensive than some of the other restaurants but you get what you are paying for. The wine is not overpriced and was very good too.

All in all fully deserved of its number 1 slot for Marrakech and another 5 star review from me to add in there!!! I have dined at various restaurants who do tasting menus and this was up there with some of the best for me.

If we ever come back to Marrakech we would definitely make a beeline for this place again!

Thanks to Paul and his team

“Lovely meal - amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Fantastic meal and service. Started with canapé and drinks on the candle-lit rooftop terrace, under the stars and overlooking the labyrinthine alleyways of Marrakech old town. Then we were taken down to the restaurant for dinner - we chose a table by the hotel's dip-pool (together with the resident giant rubber duck in the pool) and lovely fireplace. The decoration of the hotel is definitely eclectic and somewhat surreal (there is a giant camel head with cigarette in its mouth in the smoking room), but we loved it.

The food was delicious - we had the five course taster menu (big fan of taster menus) - and the service relaxed, but attentive. In fact, the whole meal and ambience was very relaxing and enjoyable.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

This was a lovely tranquil oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of marrakech. The canapes were served on the roof in a beautiful setting before we sat down to an amazing 5 course meal. The service was just right and the food was incredible. Would definately recommend.

“Excellent food, service and location - divine is the descriptor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We managed to make a late reservation with their staff in London after finding this restaurant on TripAdvisor. All of our contact with the staff was fantastic and very professional.

The location of this restaurant is tucked away in a small alleyway off of the Jemma el Fnaa. Once inside you are transported to an area of luxury. The outdoor seating area is comfortable and magical with a view over the Medina.

The service was excellent from all of the staff that we encountered during the evening. With only seating for a limited number of people, you really do feel as if you are special.

The food was excellently displayed and tasted as good as it looked. The chef was able to cater for a vegetarian without problems. The five course menu with canapes kept getting better and better with each course. It was a very nice touch to have the chef come out and talk to the diners at the end of the meal. He was genuinely interested in our comments.

A great dining experience in any city, not just in Marrakech. A fantastic meal, atmosphere and location...a must visit if you enjoy good dining.

“Excellence on every level.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Visited Marrakesh in October and had seen good reviews for this place, we were not disappointed.
From the moment you eventually walk through the door (easy to find once you know where it is!), you appreciate the owner and staff alike are proud of what they have created.
It is this pride and attention to detail which defines an excellent restaurant from the rest.
It was said about La Gavroche "It is not just food, it is theatre!", the same applies to MK.
Sitting on the roof terrace with an ice cold drink as the sun goes down, you could be a million miles away from the hustle of the town, only the calls to prayer remind you that you are in fact in the middle of it all.
The food couldn't be faulted and the service was always attentive.
As it was our wedding anniversary, we were sat in the corner booth which was very pleasent (even if one of the pictures on the wall was reminiscient of a horror movie poster!)
All in all a very enjoyable experience,
