“Excellent typical family restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We loved this restaurant, it was a great taste of real Moroccan food and family run. The harira was the best we had in Morocco and they did a tasty lamb tagine with beautiful meat.

“Authentic Morocco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We ate at this lovely restaurant twice during our stay in Morocco.

The restaurant is situated in Riad Laarous, nestled in among a narrow main street of shops shops and more shops :-)

The entrance is lit up with candles and a colourful front door which enticed us in. We were greeted by a man in dress, who guided us up the stairs and into the most inviting little Moroccan gem. Its not a big place, but enough to seat maybe 20. Big comfy couches with pillows at the back, authentic decor and Moroccan music to really make you feel like you have arrived in this amazing city.

The menu is not extensive, but none of the reasonably priced restaruants in Morooco are. I went for the veg tagine the first time and it was lovely. The second time I had the chicken shish with Moroccan Salad which was fantastic. Followed by Mint Tea and Patiserries.

The service was most excellent, nothing we asked for was too much trouble and the man who served us was calm, friendly and relaxed.

I highly recommend this restaurant, the food was great, service fantastic and we really felt like we had stumbled upon a real peice of Morrocco.

Thanks everyone at Dar El for making our dinner outings so special!

“Good food, excellent value and friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

This small family style restaurant is characterized by good traditional Moroccan food and a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable, most main courses around 50-60 dirham. You can eat in a lounge style area surrounded by colourfull cussions.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Tucked away in the medina, El Walidin offers good service and delicious food at bargain prices. Dinner for two 150 dirhams!
Definitely worth a visit.
