“Fun dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Delicious chicken pastilla starter!! Lamb and fig tagine very sumptuous - falling apart, no need for a knife. Good Moroccan wine and belly dancer show at the end. Expensive, but good fun and delicious food. According to our source at the riad, it is the only restaurant on the square that serves alcohol.

“To be avoided”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our last night in Marrakech we decided to splurge at the Le Marrakchi. What a mistake! Even though it has a great location, it was a disaster. Food was average, service slow, and the waiter inattentive. Understandably we got up from the table without leaving a tip and then the tirade began. We could not understand all that was shouted but the words 'tip' and 'diarrhoea' were clearly enunciated in English. This restaurant is to be avoided. We should have read reviews in Trip Advisor before going!

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Just off the main square this busy restaurant was recommended to us and didn't disappoint. The staff were very obliging, food was good and plentiful (ie too much), but a little bit more expensive because of its location. We just missed the Belly Dancers, but enjoyed the musicians. Wine and Beer available.

“Go for the overall experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

With a great location just off the Jemmaa El Fna this is an ideal place to eat having looked round the night market . Very good ambience including music and excellent belly dancers . The food is perfectly good , but this is not goumet dining . Service was OK , make sure you sit a few tables away from the musicians otherwise your conversation will be hard . We had a great night and really enjoyed it . Ideal for a first night in Marrakesh to give you taste of all round local flavour
