This Restaurant & Club is a place where a colorful, cosmopolitan clientele of the famous and the not-so-famous rub shoulders in a festive atmosphere created by exotic dancers, live musicians and DJ's… A fun and trendy place offering a menu featuring both International and Moroccan dishes. The perfect blend of the Orient and the West, this is the place in Marrakech where night time means party time.

“Nice but not fantastic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Recommended by a friend to go here, I found the whole experience a little too international and a bit false though the belly dancing was in fact very amusing and done well.

Despite booking we were put outside on a tiny table next to chain smoking American lady who was far more modified than original material. I have seen people smoking before and after a meal, even between courses with members of the British royal family but never between spoonfuls.

The table was tiny.

The food was though not bad at all and I guess if you want to stay at an international hotel outside of the city and wander to eat sort of international stuff like the world famous comptoir burger this is the place for you.

Would I do it again no , good value, not bad including drinks it was 85 euros not bad am i being picky?

The belly dancing and the ladies dancing with trays on their heads was very funny.

“A nice alternative evening.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you have already seen the souks the Medina ..the desert and everything else that is the real Morocco why not spend a night as you would at home!!
Well that was our thought as we made our reservation. The place lived up to our expectations. Nice decor inside and out helpful smiling (goodlooking!!!) staff and if you turn up before 10:30 you will be able to watch (and why not participate.)..the exotic belly dancers performing.
Of course as back home the place(food+drinks) is overpriced but still worth visiting.
