“Couscous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The couscous they cook is delicious! And breakfast typically marrocan made fresh every day. You get a coffee, different breads, fruits and fresh orange juice. And eating it on the terrasse is very relaxing. You can also sit in the jaccuzzi and have it served there :-)

“Best food in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Riad Dar Najat is an oasis of calm in the loud and chaotic city. We had slight trouble finding it though but it seems to be normal in the maze of little narrow streets of Marrakech.
The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming; the place itself is nicely decorated with atmospheric lighting and pleasant background music. The restaurant is on the terrace with jacuzzi, which we were welcome to use even though we didn't stay at the hotel and came just for drinks or dinner.
I have never been a big fan of Moroccan cuisine but I loved that meal. We got a selection of crunchy salads, green beans and okra with argan oil for starters and then ordered what I thought was the best tagine possible: soft juicy beef, with excellent sauce and plums, served with slightly sweet cinnamon rice with toasted almonds. The portions were so generous that we barely touched the fruit that came after the the main course.
The beer was overpriced but we were happy to pay as it seemed to be the only place selling alcohol during Ramadan.
After having such an amazing evening meal on the first night, the rest of the journey around Morocco was culinarily disappointing. So if you want to taste the best of Morocco, this is definitely the place to go to.

“Fun and interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

A guide is necessary to find this discreet Riad in the Medina. Once found, it is an oasis of calm amidst the chaos. Traditional tagines, prefaced by an assortment of salads. All beautifully prepared and served with a smile. As others have noted, the ambience is terrific on the rooftop terrace and a great evening was had by all.

“Great food, ambiance and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Dinner is served on the rooftop terrace, decorated with wonderful lighting and great music. Intimate setting, not a lot of tables so it's best to reserve ahead of time. Good size portions, usually a salad, a vegetable dish, then the delicious tajine, either lamb, chicken, etc and of course, their great mint tea. Definitely give it a try!

“Superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This was our first meal on arrival to Marrakech and it was excellent! We had a little trouble finding it (but were very kindly guided by people) so would suggest getting transport there. We preordered the set menu and it was excellent, and ch mark to set all other meals in Marrakech against. The couscous and tagine were both excellent as were the starters of salads and the courgette soup. Come on a very hungry stomach, the portion sizes are extremely generous.
