“a Wonderful meal after a long trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

When we booked our rooms at Dar Najat, we did not even know they served dinner. However, during the initial emails with Olli, the owner of Dar Najat, he suggested we might want a nice Moroccan dinner from the Dar Najat kitchen our first night in Marrakech and if so, they would be happy to prepare a special meal for us. Wow! are we glad we took him up on his offer.

My wife ordered beef and I ordered chicken. The other couple did the same. The taste was absolutely fantastic. The service was great. The price was reasonable. Everything was cooked fresh. To relax after a long day of travel and end the day with a quality meal such as this made the trip worthwhile! We ate our dinner by candlelight on the open air balcony at the riad.

The owner likes to have a day's notice so that they can shop for everything fresh. Rather than hunt around trying to find a restaurant on your first night in Marrakech, do yourself a favor and go with the Dar Najat special dinner. You will not be sorry.

“Wonderful fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The fact that you are asked to let them know before 2pm if you'd like dinner that day so that they can buy your food in fresh from the markets is a big reason why the food is so good. Breakfast is all freshly prepared with pain au chocolate, crepes, fresh bread, tasty preserves, omelettes, fresh fruit, coffee and orange juice that is simply fresh oranges roughly squeezed into a glass for you.

We had 2 dinners that were the best food we had all the time we were there. Our evening meals started with a wide selection of vegetables, perfectly prepared, followed by tagine (the chicken is superb) and dessert of fresh fruit. The portions are very generous and you can accompany your meal with wine or beer at very reasonable prices.

“Fantastic food!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We are staying here at the moment and are here last night - complimentary meal as part of our package so unable to comment on the value!
The food was absolutely exceptional. I am very fussy and am a bit of a foodie - the starter mezze selection was beautiful - green beans with garlic and spices and courgette the same way. There was then a fantastic aubergine dish that is very similar to an aubergine curry that I make myself so I was very impressed. The main was rice cooked in butter and a chicken tagine which was excellent. If you like good food and spicy authentic food then you have to try this!

“Moroccan gastronomie at Dar Najat:”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The food at Dar Najat is simply delicious. The breakfasts are wonderful starting with fresh orange juice and hot bread, followed by pain au chocolate and pancakes and ending with omelettes and large plates of fresh fruit. We booked dinner on a couple of evenings and were similarly impressed. We had a Chicken tagine on the first evening and enjoyed this so much we had a lamb tagine on the second evening. There were perfectly cooked vegetables to start on both evenings along with freshly baked bread and fresh fruit for desert. The food at Dar Najat is a cut above the norm so make sure you pop in - whether you are staying there or not - during your stay in Marrakech.
