“Comfortable, but a bit pricy for what it is.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We were recommended to this place by our riad on our first night in Marrakech and found a very enthusiastic welcome from the staff. Service was good, there was a floor show from dancers who invited audience participation in typical tourist spot fashion, and an overall pleasant atmosphere. The food was good in quality, large in quantity, but seemed a bit overpriced. Starters: pigeon pastillas were a bit too dry, the assorted briouates more pastry than filling but the fish pastilla was excellent. All main courses were very good, the Tagine Essaouira especially. This fish tagine had a whole whitefish (probably bream) fillet under excellent slow-cooked vegetables; the monkfish brochette was also well cooked. Without desserts or coffees but including two bottles of wine, the dinner cost Dir1935, just over £140, for the four of us. This was our first night and a good re-introduction to Moroccan food. Afterwards, we ate better for the same or less - and there are many places to choose from!

“Nice decor , good service, very average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

DIned here on a recent 6 day trip. Restaurant is very well decorated and the service is friendly and efficient. During our meal there was a belly dance show going on, which was quite entertaining. The food was just average though and a bit too expensive for the quality served. We did have a pleasant evening - but the food was a bit bland.

“Turistic place. Average food. Nothing Special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere at night with candlelight and cool music.
Typical turistic place, with traditional bellydance shows and average food, nothing special.
There are better options in Marrakech.

“Very nice food if a little touristy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We ate at this restaurant on the advice of our hotel after just arriving in Marrakech. We found it very nice although it is very much for the tourist. We came back and ate here again due to its convenient location and were equally impressed with the food. Massive portions, well-cooked with beer at a reasonable price.
