“Very expensive and not really worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The architiecture here was really amazing so that almost makes it worth the trip without any food. The food was in ridiculously large portions-they must throw away so much food a real waste. The taste was nice but nothing special in terms of flavours. Service attentive.

“BEST Meal in Marrakech !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

A must if you’re visiting Marrakech, book in advance to avoid disappointment. On your arrival you’ll be offered an aperitif drink of your choice whilst taking in the ambiance and magic of the surroundings, later you will be shown to your table and presented with a “Mezze” of Moroccan salads, olives & breads followed by fixed course of succulent melt in your mouth chicken Tagine, The best lightest couscous you have probably tasted, Succulent Roasted Lamb and a delightful and amazing crème pastille for dessert (Out of this world) and if your still not full enough accompanied by a selection traditional Moroccan patisseries and Moroccan tea. All your drinks will be included and that’s spirits, wine, beer etc,. Be prepared to pay in the region of £112 - £115 pounds sterling per couple but you most definitely won’t be disappointed by any means and the experience overall will be memorable. The service is exceptional. Like I said a MUST if visiting Marrakech!
I strongly think you should leave this experience for your last day in Marrakech as I think it will leave you with a memorable & un forgetable experience of visiting Morocco.

“Must visit when in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

For anybody visiting Marrakesh this is a must stop restaurant. You will hardly believe such a gem is located where it is, in the middle of a residential area, but the effort to get here will be worth it. The decor and atmosphere is absolutely astounding. At first you will be taken onto the roof for drinks and snacks, before being taken down into the restaurant for your main course. Typical Moroccan food, very well cooked and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole party. Next time I'm in Marrakesh, I will definitely be going back.

“Amazing restaurant - a must when visiting Marrakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

By far the best restaurant I have ever visited – far exceeded our expectations. The Riad is absolutely stunning – and aperitifs on the beautiful rooftop terrace were the perfect start to a great evening.
The menu was a set 5 courses – each one a superb example of Moroccan cuisine. Portion sizes were HUGE – the starter or Mezze would have been enough alone!
Wine was free flowing & included in the price of the set menu – another bonus! All Moroccan wines – which were again amazing – and the serving staff always on hand to ensure our glasses were never empty!
Another pleasant surprise what the price – such good value – especially as we were there over 4 hours!

“Felt contrived and a huge amount of food waste”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I didn't enjoy the ambience at all as it felt very contrived to me. There is a set menu with a completely ridiculous amount of food - what they serve two people could easily feed six. Perhaps this is meant to add to the opulence but I thought it was simply excessive. Most of the food is left on the plates - I do hope they don't bin it. Very overpriced. There are many better places to eat in Marrakech. Try Le Foundouk instead!
