“Lively nightspot but get the timing right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2014

We went here after a fun evening shopping in the souk for dinner. It was fun to experience the more sophisticated young Marrakechians, very lively bar and with live music, but there are two ways to visit this place which is worth knowing. If you want an early (8.30pm) dinner make sure you get a table on the ground floor where it is buzzing with diners, the food is delicious and local specialities are on the menu. Or go later (10pm+) and get a table on the first floor where the cabaret is and it stays open until 3am. Girls all very dressy, boys in jeans and t shirts.

We ended up having dinner on the first floor too early where it was a bit empty and then felt too exhausted to stick around for the belly dancing. Our hotel were told the show started at 8 so it was a shame to miss it. Clearly a destination hotspot for the locals and one to return to now we know the score!

Staff very friendly and a welcome break from the more traditional/historical stuff in the Medina.

“Decadent but Slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We initially had a reservation but ended up being very late so we decided to have a drink and some Shisha. We were seated in the garden at the back which wasn't as glamorous - it took a very long time for someone to take our orders and even longer to receive our drinks and Shisha - was somewhat disappointed in the end.

“Just drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This bar is perfect for grabbing drinks before clubbing. I went there with my friends, we never ordered food, it was just drinks.

Visited : Nov 2011 but I checked May 2013 in the review because there is not an older date.

“Below our expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We were recommended this as a good place to eat with music. On arrival we were shown to a poor table with little space between tables. The food was average, my wife eating the meatball tagine. The quality was poor and the service was slow. The following morning my wife was ill, assumed due to the previous evening.
The experience generally was average although not cheap.
I would rate this restaurant as below average.
