“Good food, nice view, rude waiter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We accidentally found this place having got lost looking for Dar Essalam. Greeting was warm, service attentive and food good. The pigeon pastilla and Marrakech beef Tajine are great. The place is not cheap but in line with similar establishments.

I would have given them a higher score but for the fact that a very rude waiter spoiled our evening by bluntly asking for tips 3 times. He didn't get any of course as he really got our back up.

The dancers were not fantastic but very entertaining.

Also good selection of Moroccan wine.

“Lovely traditional restaurant, beautiful decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We visited as a family with our 6 year old daughter at lunchtime. The service wasn't super-fast but after the hustle and bustle outside it's nice to have time to relax! The food was lovely, not cheap but more comparable with what you'd pay in the UK. We sat on the terrace upstairs for the view but the inside of the restaurant was beautiful, decorated like a traditional riad. The toilets were very clean. The restaurant owner was very friendly and helped give us directions to the jewellery quarter after our meal.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The food and decor was brilliant - the best briouche we had in all of Marrakech and the best meal (I had the tajine of lamb and prunes) of our stay (and the best lamb dish I have ever eaten!) The decor is stunning as well, with amazing lights and comfy seats. It's let down a bit by waiters that like to check their mobiles a lot, but otherwise it was one of the best meals we have had in ages.

“A Moroccan Banquet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We enjoyed a gut busting Moroccan banquet on the terrace for a reasonable price.

The views were great and the food was out of this world, but I must admit the service was a little slow - thankfully the atmosphere meant we didn't mind waiting too much.

I actually preferred the decor of the restaurant (which was very quiet compared to the terrace where the views are) and if we returned I would be inclined to enjoy the privacy of the rooms in the restaurant to eat.

The concierge was tip top and you were made to feel very welcome and valued.

“Lovely romantic setting and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We went here on our second night and we are a bit suprised about some of the other reviews on here yes there are belly dancers as entertainment but it goes on for about 15mins and you can join in if you want and no the local woudnt go there but as they eat in the square im not sure what nice restaurant they would go to. so yes it is full of tourists but they do lovely choice of morrocan food with tajines and couscous and other meat and fish off the grill. it is a lovely style of restaurant and if you want a romantic meal away from the hussle and bussle in a nice place i would recommened this place as we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere and we would go back again
