“Really good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had lunch here last week and it was really good. It's easy to get to by taxi from the main square, along main roads, and they greet you at the street and escort you in. We had booked which seemed essential as they were really busy. The ladies were all lovely and the service really attentive. We had the mixed Moroccan salads to start - 14 mini dishes with fresh breads...a great way to try lots of things. Then had cous cous with chicken and also mixed kebabs - all delicious, and so much of it that we could only get about two thirds of the way through it all. Reasonable value too.

“Pricey but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

As restaurants go it is a little on the pricey side for Marrakech but we enjoyed it. You may want to book as it does get busy. The restaurant was pleasan and had a nice atmosphere. There were locals having a party as well as tourists.. The service very good. The meal was one of the better ones we had on our three week tour and the wine was very drinkable. Couldn't fault it really except that it does have some of the most uncomfortable seats and tables we encountered

“A slightly bad after-taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Al Fassia was everything it promised - great food (our only couscous of the holiday), nice atmosphere and good service. It is a popular tourist venue, and it's wise to book in advance.
But ... the only thing was that when paying the bill the change was 100D short. The waitress didn't seem surprised when I pointed out the error. I would like to think that it was a genuine mistake.

“Production Line.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Had its days. It was one of the good dinning places in Marrakech.
Sadly, it's the victim of its own success.
