“atmosphere romantic terrace dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Wonderful atmospheric evening. Beautiful restaurant , but the true experience is to reserve a table on the terrace under Moroccan skies. The service was impeccable, Moroccan wine was very good and the food was quite good if not excellent. Great place for a quiet romantic culinary experience. Worth the effort to find it, unless you are staying at Riad Farnatchi which is just around the corner. Highly recommend .

“Brilliant Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Very good food with a nice change from Morrocan cusisine as there are two menus- a French one and a tradiitonal one. Can't complain about the food but the restaurant was very hot and a bit too intense in the day!

“Average, International, experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My wife and I ate here on the recommendation of the driver who had taken us to the Ourika Valley. The food, décor, staff and service were all good but very expensive by local standards. Perhaps because of this, it felt a little too much like a restaurant in a ‘five star’ international hotel than a small, local restaurant located in the heart of the Marrakech Souk. I doubt that there were any Morrocans dinning there, certainly no locals.

Le Foundouk is difficult to find, although that’s part of the fun and they provide guides to help you find the restaurant upon arrival and a taxi after your meal.
