The food is good and the decor is beautiful. The entertainment is geared for tourists, but since they have been in business since the 1950s who can complain? Even Hollywood visited!

All tourists, many in groups. Entertainment that is meant to appeal to what mass tourist would expect to see in Marrakesh. Service quite good, food acceptable.

100% tourist restaurant: “typical” music performance is quite entertaining but if you look for a place that focus on food and allows talking to each other this might not be your place of choice. Food was ok - but quite pricey.

We were a bit taken aback by the strange decor and somewhat run-down look of this place. However this was more than compensated by the absolutely superb dishes - far too many of them! - brought by the very friendly staff. The musical entertainment was...More
