“High-end cuisine, but lacking coherence”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I've been many times to Villa Mandarine, situated within a residential area, at the end of a road. The restaurant is appreciated by many, some of the dishes are indeed showing a certain level of research. Prices are on the higher end of what you can find in Rabat. I'm a little bit concerned about the lack of coherence in the menu. Taken separately, plates are enjoyable, but the full dinner experience is missing. With a little energy, owners could deepen the ability to transport you into the warmth of a colonial past, but the experience is rather flat, due to poor service.

“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just perfect!! Great food, good service, nice cadre. It would be better off with some background music.
It's reasonably priced for what you get. Every penny that you'll spend in this place is worth it.
