We were only on a drastically short trip into Marrakech amounting to little more than three nights. We were staying in a Riad close to Les Jardins de la Medina and kind of fell upon it while exploring. We enjoyed an excellent and rather clever light lunch there one day and then pushed our boat out and went for dinner.... More

Really romantic restaurant, lovely food and great service but be warned if you sit in the middle of the restaurant you might get pooed on by the wildlife or creatures landing on you or in your food....when I mentioned I'd been unfortunate to experience that 3 times they quickly brought a parasol to put over me.

We were fortunate enough to be staying at the hotel and ate a few lunches and dinners here. The menu is a mix of local and international and all the food is well cooked and presented. It is worth visiting for a meal or a drink just to sit in the gardens and enjoy the view.

My husband and I had dinner here. We had reservations and were greeted at the entrance and let into the garden. We were directed to sit at a dirty wine stained table when we went up to the bar because all of the tables were dirty before it being cleaned and our drink order taken. I was not too happy... More

The location is not perfect as it is located at the end of the kasbah. However, food is excellent (at least what we got) and the service good.

This was only a short walk from where we were staying and we did not want to fight the crowds in the town centre. The restaurant is situated in the rear garden which is a lovely, interesting setting and not what you woulde expect from the front. Service was excellent as we ordered pre meal drinks while perusing the menu.... More

If this was just about the food, then it would be a 2* max but eating around the pool, with the very mellow strains of a live guitarist across the courtyard, brings out the romantic! Set in a beautiful, hidden city-centre Riad, the ambience and refinery is an absolute joy. The setting is literally perfect. The staff are attentive and... More

Dear Sir, Having read your comment, I can only wonder whether you may have confused the Jardins de la Medina with another establishment. Our menu offers 48 dishes ‘a la carte’ as well as 4 extra menus to satisfy all tastes and budgets Of these 48 dishes, about one third are Moroccan and there are only 5 couscous. Our menu... More

We came in for a romantic lunch before leaving Marrakech. What a beautiful setting right in the Medina of Marrakech. It's pretty amazing how luxurious the gardens are in the middle of this wonderful setting, the name of the restaurant is well deserved! It seems at least 10 degrees cooler, and the relaxing atmosphere overlooking the pool and the gardens... More

For our final evening in our 2-week-holiday in Morocco we decided to make our last dinner special. And we were brought by fate to Les Jardins de la Medina and the awesome experience still linger in our memory. First, the service from the very start to the very end was impeccable.
