A good Moroccan restaurant, as usual with a set menu, but with a good quality food, unlike other Moroccan restaurants in the Medina. In the middle of the old city, it is not easy at all to reach, but with the help of a boy, who then demanded a tip, we finally arrived. The place is not very big and... More

We were amazed by the restaurant itself: it's decor, staff and location. This is THE PLACE to be when in Marrakech. We were received by a warm staff who explained us the menu and recommended us the different dishes on it. The food was extremely delicious, we definitely could tasted the cuisine Marocaine. It's just not a restaurant, it is... More

I booked this for my partner's birthday based on TA reviews. We had a very special evening. Finding it is an interesting experience as there are no signs and it is tucked away through a labyrinth of alleys within the medina. But once you walk through the doors into the candlelit exotic surroundings it is well worth the effort of... More

We stayed only 5 mins walk away, at the Riad El Fenn, but had to ask a member of staff to help us find it along the hidden alley ways. We entered quite a dimly lit sort of indoor courtyard, duo playing music in a little alcove, given a choice of tables, we took the one to the left hand... More

This place is worth the labyrinth of alleys to find! The food was fantastic, plenty of it and the set menu value was good. It's not the cheapest meal but includes your wine and water, coffees etc.. there is music on all night and it was a lovely atmosphere.

My wife and I ate here after browsing reviews so we knew exactly what to expect. We had a lovely time and it was definitely memorable. You will probably need a reservation and then a guide or detailed map to find it. One of the staff from our Riad (Chi Chi) kindly offered to walk us here and it would... More

Took my wife and three children to this place for dinner and we enjoyed our evening. It's a lovely setting. The food was good but nothing special and cost us almost £250, even though we only order the set menu for four as they said it would be enough food given the age of our youngest daughter (9). We did... More

We ended up at this restaurant by default sinceEl Fenn could not accommodate us so a member of El Fenn's staff took us through the twisty narrow passages to this authentic riad. We were shown to a table upstairs and felt a little out on our own, no immediate ambience. Staff were pleasant but did not explain that there is... More

We were told that Tobsil was a wonderful place to have dinner in the Medina, but the experience went far beyond our expectations. We can now say that it was our favorite eating experience in Marrakech. This is a very intimate place. Even if it looks weird to get there, in fact it's quite easy because of the people from...
