“Still a great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We first ate here last year and were impressed by both the food and the atmosphere. We
were not disappointed on returning this year. It remains a busy, buzzy place, very French but that's part of the vibe.There's a good range of choice on the frequently changed (large) board. Staples include steaks, (try the Chateaubriand with maroilles) and various fish dishes. The rest depends on the day. The wine list is interesting and reasonably priced for Marrakech. You can reserve by email and it's a good idea to do so.

“Buzzy French”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Found this by recommendation from our riad.

It's very French, mostly expats, if you don't like the French way then don't bother.

If you do it's great, menu chalked up with all the usual suspects - mind you Tournedos at 125DH a bargain. Wine list was interesting red? Moroccan or French - that was the choice had the Moroccan - it was very good.

Service was fine, owner came over to say hi and most folks seemed to know each other - just like a provincial French restaurant.

Lots of smoking - like it or hate it.

So if you are a francophile and need a fix while you are in Morocco go - it's great. Lots of style chatter and quality food at a very reasonable price.

“Smokey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

If you are French, love to smoke and enjoy poor service then this is the restaurant for you. Sorry, this is the first bad review I have written for Trip Advisor but I had such a bad experience. The one thing in its favour is that the food is reasonable good. Besides that, as non-smokers, we were gasping for fresh air when we got out and our clothes and hair stank. As I say, if you are French you would probably enjoy it but for those of us used to dining in smoke free environments give it a miss.

“Very, very French”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

On the night we dined at Le Studio we were the only non-French there. The clientele consisted of French ex-pats but despite being tourists the atmosphere towards us was cordial enough.

The food was good and the prices reasonable, the service was, well very French really. Efficient enough and the waitress did her best to explain the dishes to us in English despite limited language.

If air thick with cigarette smoke deters you from having a good time you may wish to give this a miss.

As a break from tagine and couscous this restaurant served us well and we would recommend but brush up on your French first.

“Forget it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I would recommend to choose an other place if you look for a restaurant in Marrakech. The place is expensive, the food is just ok, the service is bad. On top of that the boss is not friendly and must learn what clients mean in any business. The Studio wants to be in and fashion but they have a lot to improve if they want people feel being in a good restaurant...
