“Yummy Amaia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Please don't be fooled by the craziness going on outside this restaurant- for once you get through the doors, it is a peaceful haven in Marrakesh! The service was friendly and the food lovely. I ate the Amaia salad and my partner had the spaghetti bolognese. Very modern and clean. Would thoroughly recommend it!

Marrakech is a very noisy city with a lot of motorcycles....but good music and good food are a good cure! Thank's for appreciate.

“A lovely change to marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We looked this restaurant up on trip advisor. What a lovely little restaurant :) the owner, luckily wasnt moroccan so we knew the food would be above average. You can see the lovely clean kitchen so there is no worry about getting sick. We had the pumpkin soup and the salad for starters and the carbonara and the burger for mains. The pasta was probably the best carbonara I've ever had. The ambience was really nice. Very small and romantic :) we hate morocco so won't be returning but if we had to we would eat here every night :) 5*.

“Excellent Food!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Looked this restaurant up on trip advisor, had really good reviews so decided to pay a visit, the food, the service all were delightful. I had the chicken wok with rice and it was oozing with flavor and melt in your mouth chicken, hubby had the new york steak and was cooked to perfection. Don't miss on such yummy food when in Marrakech.

“Small intimate french bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Based on trip advisors list we went looking for this restaurant. We were not disappointed. It was quiet with only 3 or 4 tables occupied. This place should have been full based on the food and service. Cozy and romantic The staff could not do enough for us. Well worth a visit when you are in Marrakech.

“Wonderful little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is fabulous! We were so impressed with the service and the food that we visited twice. Seabass tartare was fabulous...simply divine. Both times we visited the place was very quiet which is a shame as we honestly felt that this was the best restaurant we ate at and deserves to be full of people. Eric, the owner gave fantastic advice on food and the accompanying dish for each course. Not to mention that the price is extremely good! We were thoroughly impressed and would highly recommend this restaurant. Well done, Eric on a fantastic restaurant!
