“Super delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

In March me and a friend stayed 4 days at Riad Dar Najat in Marrakech and for the last evening we decided to have dinner at Dar Najat.
The food has been outstandingly good - the best I ever had in Morocco after being there already three times. The location is very nice and inviting. As starters we got served some kind of Moroccan tapas which were super tasty. And the main course? I'm dying for it! We ordered lamb tagine with almonds and plums... Just for the dinner I'm willing to visit Dar Najat once again.
Only advise to you planning to go there, is: ENJOY! You will love it for sure.

“High quality food, great atmosphere and a very nice service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had great night out at Dar Narjats kitchen. The place itself is not easy to find, however they offer to pick you up at the Cafe de France at the Jemma el Fna. We had an aperitive in the patio of the roof top terrace, went down to find ourselves a nice cozy place between comfy cushions and ate the most delicious meal we had on our trip in Morrocco. Service, atmosphere and food are all fantastic. Just one advice: go there :-)!

“Not worth the hassle”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Having read the reviews, I emailed Oliver and made a reservation for Monday 4th March at 8.30 for 6 adults and requested a taxi to take us to the restaurant from our Riad. Oliver confirmed by email, that this would be possible and said the taxi would collect us from our Riad Amssafah at 8.15
The taxi did not arrive. We waited for 15 mins then we asked our hotel to telephone the restaurant, when connected I asked about our booking and was told ‘it was not possible; (twice) there was no booking’. This was despite the fact that I had several confirmation emails in my hands. I put the phone down and we went elsewhere and had a fantastic meal in the Souk within the Medina.
My opinion – don’t bother trying to book this restaurant by email or any other form; it is a total waste of time. They are not bothered about your custom.

Dear Guest,
We are totally guilty on this booking as i did mixed 14..and 4th!
i did email the guest to appologize but was apparently not enough as it is the second time that he posted a very bad review with the lowest rating possible even if for sure the customer didn't eat in Dar Najat's kitchen.
Again sorry for the the wrong date,cheers! Oliver.

“The best Traditional Moroccan restaurant in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The food served at Dar Najats Kitchen is delicious.

We had two evening meals here, one was the Kefta Tagine, it was perfect. The other was a chicken tagine, the chicken was cooked to perfection, the meat was melting away and the sauce was delicious.

The restaurant serves a 3 course meal, the starters are a variety of vegetables, we had four different dishes, then you have your main course and then a desert.

The cost of the meal was very reasonable and the portions we got we very generous. One thing is for sure, you will be completely full by the time you leave Dar Najat's Kitchen.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Another restaurant visit based on the rave reviews found on Trip Advisor, we visited Dar Najat's Kitchen on the first night of our stay in Marrakech.

Very hard to locate within the medina and tucked away in the backstreets, we had to ask for directions on a couple of occasions. Oddly, for a Saturday night we were the only customers in the Riad for dinner and we thought there must be something wrong with the place despite the brilliant reviews.
Fair to say, this is a little gem. The food is fantastic and by far the best and most authentic tagine we had on our entire trip and in abdunance. However, be careful, as pretty much 5 mins in we were accosted by the owner, Oliver, who befriended us and subsequently would not leave us alone and played his 'DJ playlist' repeatedly on a high volume. Initially he was charming saying how he loved London, but it became tiresome especially when he inisited my boyfriend networked with him for work purposes. This didn't match the calm surroundings, but we forgave this incessant behaviour because the food was great.

My advice to Dar Najat's Kitchen is focus on ambiance and not promoting your nightlife/DJ scene. Less is more in this case.

Lovely Riad and food, annoying manager.
