“Depends on your point of reference”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

There is a competent restaurant serving good Moroccan food in a reasonably good setting, nothing more than that. If you regularly look out the latest entry in the Good Food Guide, or high ratings on Zagat, you will probably find the food lacks subtlety. If you visit Michelin starred restaurants you will find the service a little surly. So forget the 'brilliant' reviews but it is quite good, and much better than most in Marrakech. It is also reasonably priced.

“Great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

The decoration of the restaurant was beautiful. Very romantic setting. The service was very good. We had a few appetizers and afterwards a tajine. Delicious. It was our first night out in Marrakesh and it was just a great way to start our holidays!

“Wonderful Moroccan Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We dined here on our last night in Marrakech.
The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and the staff were helpful and pretty attentive (I generally found service in Morocco to be lack lustre but Al Fassia was better than most).
The food was really excellent. We had pigeon pastilla for starters which were delicious - only complaint was that they were too big to be a starter but I don't think that can really classify as a complaint.
We both had chicken tagines for main course (mine with squash, my better half's with olives) - both excellent and very happy customers.
Would definitely recommend.

“Chicken tajine...a dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had a wonderful evening in a beautiful setting with delicious food.
The staff is very efficient and friendly - only ladies.
We had a selection of Moroccan starters (16 little plates to share, simply delicious!). We had good fun trying ti guess which spices and herbs were used in the preparation - absolutely amazing.
Then I ate chicken tajine with olives and preserved lemons...it was really tasty and unlike any flavour I had ever come across.
Although the restaurant is large and rather busy, it still feels cosy and very pleasant.
I would suggest to make reservation; it is completely booked most of the times.
Children felt welcomed.
Value for money was very adequate. Around 150 dh for a main dish.
Highly recommended.
