“Lovely surroundings for a celebration meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Twelve of us went here for a birthday celebration. The ambiance was superb - we had a table upstairs. The waiters were very attentive and the dual menu of both French and local cuisine gave a wide choice. We were lucky to get a table as this restaurant is booked up far in advance which I think speaks volumes as to the standard of the food.

Book well in advance if you wish to dine here

“Great Food and Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We had dinner at this restaurant on several occasions due it being nearly next door to our Riad, The food was very good and staff were helpful and fine. You might want to book on Saturday night as they were nearly full, other nights were not a problem.

“Excellent stylish restaurant with nice terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a romantic dinner for two on the rooftop terrace. The evening was a bit chilly, but the gas warmers made us feel very comfortable. Excellent morrocan cuisine, very friendly staff. Great wine list. Expect 150€ for two.

“Lovely Up-Market Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I visited this restaurant after it was recommended by another guest at our Riad and it was wonderful!

In Marrakech many places are hard to find due to the many alleyways and streets however this was very easy to find due to it being well signposted & lit up outside.

Once inside it was fantastically decorated and the staff showed us to a table on the 1st floor. The music was great and we found the staff to be polite and very prompt in serving us. Reading previous reviews on trip advisor suggesting that staff were unhelpful and arrogant made us wonder if this place was a little pretenious but we didnt find that at all on our visit.

The food was fantastic but slightly on the expensive side compared to some other restaurants however they do have a large alcohol selection which is rare in Marrakech to get any alcohol at all.

Overall lovely restaurant : )

“Just lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great food, great ambience and great cocktails and/or wine. I would recommend it. We were told that the balcony was the place to dine but unfortuantely it had been raining in the morning so it was closed.
