Overwhelming Feast

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... read 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

Tucked away on a back street, just as you enter the gate. An oasis of calm, beautiful interior and amazing plants inside! Mint tea is the best around - loved it!! Kind people and very welcoming.

Popped in here on a day visit to the town and had some mint tea and Moroccan pastries. The riad is beautifully decorated in local style and the family who run it were most helpful.

I went looking for this place based on Tripadvisor ratings and was not disappointed. Nice quality of food which was well presented. If you are in Taroudant this place is worth a visit for sure.

We are delighted we found Riad Maryam in a back street off main Av Mohamed V. The public areas are tiled on floors and walls and the decor is out of Arabian nights. Drapes and soft music and comfy sofas. The food was the best so far in Taroudant, both in terms of quantity (massive) but also quality. Every type... More
