“A look inside the Morroccan cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a must-do if you are staying in Marrakech and want to have some good Morroccan food. It isn't cheap food but it's worth it. You leave the restaurant with a feeling that this was both good food and a good experience.

“Lovely food, but.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The concept is such a good one, a restaurant run by women. We went to Al Fassia near the Majorelle Gardens. We read elsewhere that one of the starters is a combo of salads and that is just what we were looking for. We ordered 3 (the fourth member of our party ordered a main course chicken). It was at this point that the lady taking our order became disgruntled and sadly let her feelings be clearly known. This continued well into the meal but she seemed to relent towards the end. But you can imagine how this impacted on our dining experience. This is why we aren't giving 5*.

The food - to wit the salad combo - was in fact some of the best food we ate during our stay. And was the perfect amount, with lovely bread and a bottle of wine.

(Watch out for the midget dining tables and chairs).

“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.

“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!
