“What a wonderful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We ate here on our first night, and what a wow the location is. Beautiful building, and a gorgeous rooftop terrace. Having said that, the food seemed singularly tired and ultimately a rather underwhelming experience - the menus arrive wrapped in a ring, and that was interesting but fiddly by the time the dessert course came, and also a bit stained and ragged, which didn't fit with a restaurant that clearly has so many accolades. The food was ok but again, for example, the chicken pastille arrived, with nothing else (ie a pastie on a plate). So, go for the dining experience, ad take the food as it comes.

“Great food amid amazing ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Are here for dinner twice while on a recent two week trip to Marrakech. Different guests with us on each occasion. All professed themselves impressed with the food (menu features both Moroccan and French cuisine, each clearly labeled and explained). Also a decent wine selection, including some excellent Moroccan product. As others have noted, staff a little stiff, but in no way impolite and actually very helpful when called upon to assist. Easily the culinary highlight of our trip.

“Roof-top dining in the middle of the Medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Sitting at a candle-lit table on the roof-top terrace, we especially enjoyed the attentive service in this high-quality fusion food restaurant. While never exaggerating, service was always present and needn't to be called upon.

Offering a nice mixture of Marrocan-inspired and international dishes, it is the atmosphere which made this dinner quite an exceptional experience.

“Simply Beaut”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

From the hustle and bustle of the tiny alleys and streets emerges Le Foundouk. A beautifully decorated, staffed and located restaurant. To sit on the roof, surrounded by beautiful lanterns, soft decor and enjoy fantastic food is a pleasure missed all to often that not. A must visit in Marrakesh.
