“Fabulous evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Han: " it felt like our private palace an we were the King and Queen"

Mart: Just a little out of the way, this was well worth the visit. The walk up to the building and the decor within really set the tone for what to expect. The decor is intricate and fascinating, the staff welcoming and professional. We were presented with free appetisers on arrival which I thought was a very nice touch. There is an aire of formality to the place but, having read other reviews, we came expecting this. The tables are sparse with plenty of space so don't expect to be thrust into a bustling environment. Here you will hear This is for someone who wants to actually talk to their dinner companion. There was gently performed Moroccan guitar music performed throughout - save for a brief but enjoyable performance by the belly dancer.

The food was absolutely delicious. We only managed two courses from the Moroccan set menu ( pigeon then veal/lamb tagine ) which was absolutely delicious - but there is also an international menu. The Moroccan wine we had was light and complemented the food well - and my glass was NEVER empty.

It was close to a perfect evening, save for our waiter choosing to remind us as we paid, that service was not included. This didn't need to be said and came off a little cheap. We were planning to tip well for what was a fantastic evening and did so - but this is our choice...

“A real feel of Morrocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I read the previous reviews and would say that if you are prepared for a more formal night out in a wonderful location then this should be on your list of things to do. Tucked away from the madness of the main city the entrance to the wonderfully decorated interior is one of welcoming calmness. As we entered the dining room we were shown to our table in a seclued area where we relaxed to the sound of traditional music being played live. The menu was a mix of local and international dishes, we all had various tagines which were excellent and sampled some of the local red wine which held up well. The highight of the evening was the belly dancer who danced for a short period of time which topped off a very enjoyable evening.

“Beautiful building but that's where it ends!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Not sure how this place warrants its excellent reviews on TA. True, the building is fabulous but the food is terrible (mains both cold on arrival) Service is sloppy! This place is not a patch on Al Fassia and charges double the price. Really sorry to be negative about The Red House but we were extremely disappointed.

“Wow, wow, wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Having dinner at Restaurant du Red House is an experience by itself. You really feel like dining in a real PALACE at a fairly reasonable price.
We even went back for breakfast to take some pictures of that lovely "Riad". The Manager was kind enough to allow us to visit some of the rooms. Now we know where we will stay next time we go to Marrakech. We could have have a 2 bedrooms suite for 4 people for what it costs us to stay at the Sofitel Palais Imperial.
