“What a waste of time and money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2015

We were a party of four all aged from 68 to 75 years of age. Having been recommended this place we arrived having booked the night before. As we understood there was a floor show, this consisted of 5 ladies dancing on tables etc and having given to them monies for the privilege. What an absolute disaster and what a complete waste of money. If anyone can avoid this place we all would advise you to do so at all costs.We would never ever recommend this place to anyone.

I went to this restaurant with my wife on recommendation of our host. We had such an amazing time. The food and service were great with lots of different belly dancers and entertainment. I would definitely go back.

“Made to feel like second class citizens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015

We had booked a table for 19th May and had not been advised of any restrictions. The two men in the party were wearing chino long length shorts polo shirts and sandals. On arrival the security team of three were really rude advising us we could not enter as we were dressed inappropriately. When we asked why we were advised that shorts and sandals were unacceptable. We asked why as we had not been advised of this, one of the security team left us to go inside. Another English couple arrived and he was wearing short chino shorts with loafers. We told him of the problem, but the security team said his dress code was acceptable as he had shoes on no let him in. After waiting for about 10 minutes we were finally allowed in. The interior is atmospheric and very dark and with low tables and chairs, by the time you are seated no one would be able to see what you were wearing from the waist down. We were also surprised at the number of women in mini dresses showing a lot more than from their knees down and wearing sandals isnt this double standards especially in a Muslim country. We had asked to sit outside but were advised you could only get drinks and shishare there, but whilst we were seated a number of people were served food outside..We ordered and wanted the food to be bad but it was surprisingly good. The security team had just ruined our experience and were nothing like any of the friendly Morrocans we met in Marrakech. On our way out we were asked by the manager of experience. We told him what had happened but he was paying lip service to us and did not even listen replying " oh good"!!!!!!!!!

“Nice entertainment, overrated food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015

The Comptoir wins the price for theatrical performance. With an atmosphere of a high standard location, multiple Maroccan dance acts, a full DJ set and very helpfull staff, the feeling was good and the promises by were high. Unfortunately, at some crucial points, they did not deliver the promise and price for us.
By entry we were somewhat earlier then our time of reservation. Instead of giving us the reserved table (that was not occupied at that moment of time), they send us to the bar. Felt like a way of getting some extra turnover. The staff was very helpfull and alert. But the food wasn't meeting the expectations. The quality was at the most average and not very original. By styling these dishes they tried to make it more fancy then it was (and ask a much too high price for it). Besides that, the social atmosphere among the guests was distant and pretentious. Maybe this meets the location. A lot of appearance and limited inner quality.
