“Great food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Excellent food, had best ever lamb tajine with caramelized onions, tender meat, sauce so delicious.

The service was hit and miss, with some lovely friendly waitresses but others a little surly.

The restaurant is a taxi ride out of town. It is beautifully decorated with an outside dining terrace, which we used. Would probably sit inside next time unless the outside lighting improves…struggled to read the menu and see the food, also road noise was a little intrusive.

Although a little expensive, we felt it represented good value for money.

Would go to either of the Al Fassia restaurants again, best food we’ve had in Marrakech.

“You have better options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Highly recommended in most of the hotel this new Al Fassia has nothing to give.
A poor atmosphere done mainly by the bad lighting( check the two projectors on the terrace) and loudspeakers is topped up by the slow service.
Definitely a tourist trap.

“Very popular and great ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We managed to squeeze in a booking in this very popular restaurant. The food was copious and delicious and the service friendly and efficient. It was well priced and had wide range of wines which makes it popular with the European community.

“Let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This was recommended on Tripadvisor, by our hotel and a series of locals and so we went for our last night meal.

Certainly seems to be the place to be seen at the moment. But the ambiance, service and quality of the food was all very poor.

Tangine or Couscous were the only real options on the menu and none of the dishes, especially the couscous had any flavour.

We had eaten at far better places and were disappointed to leave Marrakesh on a low.
