“Al Fassia, Marrakech, Morocco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Very few Moroccans eat Moroccan food outside their homes as they firmly believe that the best Moroccan food is what their mother makes!
Having said that and in the absence of eating a home cooked Moroccan meal I would rate the one we had at Al Fassia at Gueliz, Marrakech as definitely worth a visit. Make reservations, its popular and you wouldn't want to be disappointed.
The interiors and ambiance are typical Moroccan.
They do serve liquor, I don't remember if they were serving spirits as well but wine and beers were certainly being served.
Food very good as was the service.
Their website is : http://www.alfassia.com/restaurants-gastronomique.html

“A taste of morrocco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Our hotel was a short walk from al Fassia...the food was delicious, the service brilliant... I believe it is run by sisters, one of which spoke perfect English. She always smiled and I think that added to the experience. We visited twice an both times were great. We would recommend visiting around 9pm as this is when the atmosphere is buzzing. Great venue!

“Best Moroccan restaurant..authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Locals referred us...we ended up going every night of our stay. Have to make a reservation. Tangines, coucous , everything fabulous. Where the locals save to go to. Staff helpful but culturally women are not as friendly as Americans...if you want that stay home. Loved the food..my son was pleasantly amazed.

“great food at great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our top choice of Dar Yacout was closed for Ramadan so our guide and hotel manager recommended we eat at Al Faissa. We were warmly greeted. The hot Moroccan salad was easily enough for 3. About 12 small vegetarian dishes. Tangines and chicken with pumpkin were very good. We returned another evening and were treated like close friends. With glass of wine about $30pp
