“Fine food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This restaurant run entirely by women, is truly excellent. The service is superb without being fawning and by European standards it is a excellent value (dinner for 2 with wine about 75 euros).
The food is classic Moroccan, but done with care and really delicious. The patrons are almost exclusively European, but that is too be expected. The only disappointment was the doorman (the only man involved in the restaurant) got us a ripoff taxi, that ended in a shouting match and cost twice what it should have. But taxis are going to rip you off in Marrakech.

“good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

A really comfortable restaurant with good food and service in the Gueliz area. I had a really generous selection of salads as a starter followed by a delicious tagine. If you are staying in the Medina you should get a taxi there.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Unlike other reviewers we did not book, but it was lunchtime! The food was excellent. The Moroccan salads as starter came with 15 varieties. The couscous with caramelised onions was sweet and succulent.
The all female staff were friendly and charming.
Not more expensive than other good restaurants

“excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

the food here is something to write home about, I like to eat here everytime i come to marrakech, if in the busy season you will have to book a table as the restuarant is very popular with local as well as tourist customers.
