“Excellent set menu, musician and belly dancer to boot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Eating out in Marrakesh isn't cheap and this is no exception, but at least the food is well presented, tastes good and doesn't give you tummy upsets! The amuse bouche at the start brought a smile to our faces. Staff are brilliant.

“Excellent surroundings and food to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Great Moroccan food and hospitality. The salad selection to start followed by veal and chicken tagines were the best we had in Marrakech. The live entertainment was icing on the cake. Reasonably priced for Marrakech and a restaurant we would definitely recommend

“Francine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful building, good service BUT very average food. We were actually quite disapointed as no real ambiance a sweet old man playing the guitar but it was completely lost on the enourmous room, the belly dancer was sweet but was very young and as on her own it was hard for her to get an atmosphere going. Not the most memoranle night of our stay which was a shame as it was the most expensive.

“Lovely birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I booked this resturant on line before we arrived for my Husbands birthday. I mentioned it was his birthday and would they do a special dessert.
We arrived and had a lovely table in the corner, the decor is beautiful, we both ordered from the Marakech menu, pigeon parcels were tasty and I had the mixed sea food and meat parcels also very nice. For our main meal we had lamb tagine with prunes and cous cous it was so tender and delicious.
The manager came and asked if I had per booked on line and if I found it easy.
They asked us for our dessert choice and I was wondering if they had forgotten the birthday.
However the musician started to play and all the staff came out singing with a wonderful chocolate cake, which they told us was a gift ! It really was good.
My husband had a lovely birthday and we would definitely return when next in Marrakech

“Great traditional Moroccan restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We discovered the Red House through a Trip Advisor search for a special valentines day dinner and we were definitely not disappointed! After a fun filled but exhausting day in the souks we arrived more than an hour early for our reservation but were warmly welcomed and led to a comfortable living room where we were invited to have a pre-dinner drink and I was presented with a red rose. The staff were all very friendly and even lit a fire for us and invited us to play the piano or guitar if we wished -luckily for them we declined! The dining room was impressive with ornate tiling and authentic Moroccan decor. We chose the Moroccan themed set menu at 400 dirhams per person which included a traditional pigeon stuffed pastilla, chicken and lamb tagines, cous cous etc and were brought a little seafood mousse as a taster in the shape of a heart in celebration of st valentine. The food was all delicious and the Moroccan Cabernet Sauvignon rosé wine was a perfect compliment and not too expensive. Rashid and the rest of the waiting staff were all very attentive and happy to spend time talking to us during the evening. Live music was played throughout the evening with a belly dancer appearing later on for a brief spell. All in all we had a great evening and would highly recommend this restaurant.
