“One of the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

During our 9 day stay in Marrakech we visited a different restaurant every night, and this was our favourite (others included Cafe Arabe, Le Jardin, Cafe D'Espices, Souk Cafe). It was a Saturday and they were fully booked but were able to squeeze us in. We were sat on the very atmospheric roof terrace, and the food and service were both very good. The only problem was finding the restaurant, and getting past the quite surly doorman!

“Not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our first few seconds of the experience were ruined by a very rude doorman who encouraged young kids to hassle us for money! The rooftop was nice so I would go here for a drink but I wouldn't eat here again. My meal was horrible (chicken pastille) and the tagines didn't come with couscous which was surprising for the price. It was the most expensive meal we had in Marrakech and we wouldn't recommend it to anyone! House wine was also not nice. There are much nicer places to eat in Marrakech so avoid this one!

“Great Restaurant in the Medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great location in the Medina... no question you are eating in an authentic Marrakech restaurant. Menu has two sides, Moroccan on one side, continental on the other. Great selection of local wines. Service is excellent, food is great....

“Forget it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Best part of our evening was getting to the restaurant through the narrow streets of the medina. The service was rushed. The waiter even brought incorrect food. The food itself was poor quality. There are such better places to eat in Marrakech .
