“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

This modern trendy bar/restaurant is well worth a visit. The downstairs is more of a bar but the mezzanine level looks over the bar and is for people dining, a good place for drinks or food.
The food is really good, we had two courses including steak and drinks and it was 600 dirhams (£46.00) which we didn't think was too bad as we really enjoyed it! The menu is in French so we didn't really know what we were ordering which made it more fun!!

The decor is nice but it's a little dark, they also show football games!
The staff were exceptional, really nice and helpful.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

We went to L'Ardoaz after finding it by accident and where really glad we did. We watched the final between Chelsea and Germany on the big screen, while being serenaded by a young singer, singing a variety of rock, pop, and old crooners songs. The atmosphere was lovely and friendly and we had a brilliant meal too. We started with casears salad, which was quite enormous and very tasty with proper fresh anchovies and then we had pigeon pie and sea bass. Again beautifully presented, huge portions and very tasty. The menu is a mixture of tapas and also proper meals, of a French/Spanish influence. The whole place is very comfortable and you can eat up or downstairs or outside (daytimes mainly). It was very reasonably priced bearing in mind its got a European owner costing us around a total of 400 dirhams and it was considerably nicer than places like Pepe Nero's (660 Dirhams). Unfortunately we only went there once as we found it at the end of our stay in Marrakesh, but would definately have gone again if we had had more time.

“Cool bar and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

We found this place right next to our hotel (Diwane). It's smalla nd easy to miss but it's beautifully well done out inside. There's a bar area downstairs and a seating area upstairs for food. The food was a mix of Tapas style and full meals. The menu isn't extensive, but the food is brilliantly presented on black slate plates and was delicious. The 7 hour slow cooked lamb was particularly good. Good selection of wines both Moroccan and French.

We used this place 3 times, twice to eat and once just for a drink in the bar. It has a really cool feel about it and had a live singer on Monday singing a bunch of pop and rock sounds.

The staff were really fun and friendly and helped us out with my nut allergy and my limited French.

Stylish, modern bar/restaurant. We had the Ardoaz tapas menu and it was delicious.
We spent a great evening in here and would highly recommend it. The service was great too.
