“Authentic Local Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We recently ate at Al Fassia in Marrakech and were delighted by the delicious local cuisine and friendly service. As a starter we had a selection of traditional salads which could have been a main course in itself! At least 10 tapas-sized salads which included the most delicious aubergine I ever tasted! I would definitely recommend trying this as it gives you a wide variety of local foods to taste and are perfect for sharing. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and laid back. This restaurant is a true gem if you are looking for authentic, aromatic and hearty local food.

“Authentic, tasty food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Tucked off the street, at first glance you might walk past this restaurant. But you would be sorely missing out on the Moroccan delights it has to offer. An a la carte restaurant at a reasonable price. The food is traditional, authentic and flavoursome. Offering a light, airy interior for you to sit back and relax. I went there for a birthday meal and enjoyed succulent lamb tagine that fell off the bone.

“Do not Miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Echoe all the reviews food was superb as were the staff. Not cheap but then Marrakesh is not as cheap as the guide books make out - if you like decent food. Had a bit if a blow out 1000 D f for three course having said that the red wine was 300 D - local carbebet very palatable. Great experience would certainly go back. - very busy local in crowd seem to like it - we got in without booking but others were turned away - sugged you find it one day & book for next day - or just take a chance en shalhah - Enjoy

“Marroc ambiance and cousine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Restaurant is clean and staff is friendly. Good service.
You can find the traditional Marroc foods. Just ask for traditional tastes if you like to get a decision.
