Habib, the owner and chef was very friendly, generous and welcoming. Food will definitely blow your mind as it was different, fresh and well made. I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Also, well worth the money

- Location - Riad Maryam Restaurant is located in a back-alley. You probably won't find it on your own, so it will be best to ask a local to show you the way. Once you know where to look for the signs, then you can find it on your own! - Restaurant - The restaurant is located inside the home... More

My top choice for eating in Taroudant. Ryad Maryam is a lovely old riad in the heart of Taroudant medina, one of the originals. Habib and Latifa and always welcoming and the setting, eating in the patio with the small gardens around you, adds to the atmosphere. Latifa's cuisine is the best! You never go away hungry! Almost endless choice... More

For an authentic experience of Moroccan hospitality, ambience and food you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better than Riad Maryam. Go with a big appetite and don't full up on the soup! You've got another three courses ahead of you. And wow, what a selection. What they called the salad course would have made a lunch for four.... More

This olden restaurant is exceptional value for the sheer size, quality, and freshness of its offerings. An ordinary mortal will not be able to deal with the courses, so ideally a party of two would split a meal and order some accompaniment in place of two full meal orders. Parts of the decor seem randomly bizarre, yet they sync with... More

We had a large family meal here on 25 December. The Riad is beautifully decorated in lovely colours, plasterwork and fabrics. Dinner is served in the alcoves of the alcoves of the courtyard just next to the verdant garden, The owner is an excellent host and, more importantly, his wife is an exceptional cook. Everything we had ordered was delicious... More

We started with the best harira soup we've tasted in Morocco (and we've travelled around the south multiple times). Then 8 different salad dishes, all interestingly different and all great. The main course was a classic lamb tajine with prunes and dates, again one of the best we've tasted in Morocco. For dessert, we had a perfectly executed ktefa, crispy... More

We visited in the evening with three adults and two small kids and the owner said we would have to get five adult menus. He went on to serve us, (and charge us) for a huge bowl of soup, ten largish plates of vegetables, one and a half chickens and a gateau which would have fed ten people. The soup... More

We stayed in the riad one night. The host is a very flexible and cosy guy with an obvious talent/joy for food. The riad itself is extremely colorful. All rooms have a different style. Some I liked very much and some are very a little too cheapy. The food is extraordinary good, the marrocan salad is an explosion of different... More
