“Delicious food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I was lucky enough to have lunch here as well as an evening meal with friends. Both were delightful experiences with great food and service. Tara and Ed are the perfect hosts. Lunchtime was extremely busy and had a great atmosphere. Things were quieter in the evening and was lovely to follow up with drinks inside. Hats off to the French chef......the food was delicious!

“Room for improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We heard about this place last year and finally made it. Nice setting, service was so so, needs training and language skills an issue. Food was ok, nothing special, a bit on the expensive side for what it is meant to be in the country. The menu although limited(and full of spellos) looks promising but what it delivers in the plate is somewhat disappointing: complicated, tortured is the the word, rich sauces, and lack of seasoning. Set up is nice, cosy but you really have to want to come here since it's off the beaten tracks. Give them more time and another try...

“What an amazing place, with great hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We spent the day at The Capaldi and I cannot praise it enough. Tara and Ed are just the perfect hosts, and the hotel / restaurant is wonderful. A real Oasis just outside Marrakech. The attention to detail on decor and facilities is superb, we were lucky enough to spend a day relaxing by one of the pools, then a wonderful lunch cooked by the talented French chef.
If you want to escape the hustle bustle of central Marrakech then this place is perfect. We will be going back hopefully to stay in the Riad Capaldi in the centre for a couple of days and then to the hotel Capaldi for some calm and relaxation.
A spa, cinema, restaurant, pools, great beds to lie by the pool, more sophisticated and less pretentious and far more enjoyable than 'Nikki beach' but cool and relaxing. No detail has been overlooked.
I would recommend this to anyone thinking of going to Marrakech. A truly wonderful pace to stay or just for lunch.

“Amazing food in a stunning setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fantastic French chef, amazing setting by the pool (with a beautiful indoor area with fireplaces and a glass roof for winter months) - one of the best meals I have had in Marrakech
