“Nice place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We visited this place with some friends. I selected this restaurant because it was said it was very good for a reasonable price. The place is very nice, modern and cosy. The owner welcomed us and often made sure we were good. There were other groups of people at the same time at the restaurant. We had to wait very long to have the drinks ordered and even longer for the starters. We were ok to wait but we ended up very hungry. Entrees were ok, not amazing, nice presentation but my plate did not impressed me. It took us 3 hours and we skipped the dessert because we were afraid to wait an other hour to get it. I will try again this place hoping that it was just a bad night.

Hello Virginie and thank you for your nice comments and your wish to come back.
I just want to point out that, as you were a group we had asked you to choose a menu among five as we had several other groups that evening. And you answered by mail on the 19/09/13 :
"Si cela ne vous dérange pas, nous avons décidé de ne pas prendre un menu. Cela ne nous dérange pas d'attendre, nous réservons notre soirée pour passer un bon moment tous ensemble dans votre établissement".
Let me also remind you that you asked me to leave you time to make your choice on the card and that it took quite a long time.
Anyway, we were delighted to receive you and by the compliments about the food and the place that your friends from South-Africa made.
And we'll be pleased to welcome you when you come back.
Best regards,

“Fantastic food & ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

A group of us ate here on our final night in Marrakech. The food was simply amazing. The staff were friendly and the setting is very relaxing. We had a great evening. The only downside was that we waited almost an hour for our desserts to arrive, however it was so yummy that we can forgive them for this.

“You have to eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst walking around in Marrakech. Wow what a find. The food is excellent and also the atmosphere.

The décor and ambiance is completely Moroccan, dark and classy. I had the best tagine I have ever had and during our stay we returned to this restaurant.

There is entertainment by belly dancers and candle dancers, all very clever. My partner certainly enjoyed it.

If your on holiday in Marakech put this restaurant on your list to visit you wont regret it

“Good food, good atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I had dinner here for the first time this week with friends. Situated close to Dar el Bacha this is an easily found restaurant in a converted Riad. Stylishly decorated througout it's 3 floors we chose to dine on the terrace as it was a warm evening. Our waiter was charming and attentive and later we met Kim, the manager who told us about the Vietnamese and Thai evenings they host on Wednesdays. They will provide food from any of their menus however with advance notice when you book.

We had duo of risotto and filet of St. Pierre for main courses and chocolate mousse for dessert. Mains were served attractively, piping hot and were delicious. Dessert was rich and creamy. With a bottle of wine, water and fruit juice the bill was around 800 Dirhams so on par with other mid range restaurants of this quality in the medina.

Must go back on a Wednesday!
