We ordered beef couscous. For starters you get bread with different kind of salads and olives. And then came the main course and it was fantastic. Very delicious and a large portion. I couldn’t finish it and i usually do. The place is huge. When...you get in it goes down like a cellar and you wouldn’t expect this vast ground and one room is more beautiful than the other. The food wasn’t even expensive. It was very reasonably priced. So i would definitely recommend this place for an amazing Moroccan experience. I would definitely come here again.More

I was lucky to come here with my Middle Eastern colleagues for a company dinner. The place located in the old town and gives you a real experience how Moroccan treat their guests. Good food (especially the starters are gorgeous), they serve decent wines and...you can experience local live music and dance. It is separated for several rooms in a distance, so one can have a feeling of privacy while sitting in a sizeable restaurant. The entertainment is not boring as musicians and dancers are rotating in between the different rooms. They are involving guests, my Arabic colleagues even joined musicians playing instruments and singing songs. The service is attentive but not assertive. The place has a special atmosphere! Worth to visit!More

Ate dinner on my 60th birthday, staff made me feel very special with singing and a desert (at no charge). Dinner was really tasty traditional Moroccan food - lots of choice including for vegetarians like me. Nice traditional live music and dancers to entertain diners...- but despite the lovely venue (its like eating in a Moroccan palace) and gorgeous food the price was cheaper than many nearby "standard" restaurants. Definitely recommend this place as a great experience and great value for money. Book ahead because it is popular.More

This restaurant is found in the heart of the souks which surround the main square in Marrakesh. They’ve made it very Moroccan inside and during your meal there are musicians, a belly dancer and a couple of other acts which made it a bit corny....The food was very average and because there were 9 of us, they pushed 2 round tables together which wasn’t great.More
