The place is an old palace, the entertainment is good but if you want to take a photo you have to give tips. The food is expensive for the quality.

We went in there one afternoon and compared to other restaurants, the food was great. We didn't have any entertainment, so our review is purely based on food and service. We really enjoyed the chicken dishes and the service was good. If you're in the...More

The experience of the interior was worth it alone and doubly enjoyable when taken with food. Would recommend as a must in choosing somewhere to eat.

This is a tourist trap beware. Fascinating building, good dinner entertainment if you like belly dancers etc and nice table set up. However food is extremely average and wine pricey.

As I mentioned in my review I visited the restaurant on a organised group trip. I would believe the entertainment is regular, and that she would come out and dance have a break and then come back out again. That's how I... More

N full heart of the medina where merges tradition and modernity, an authentic restaurant has several years of perfectly preserved history. DAR ESSALAM is the first moroccan restaurant in Marrakech since 1952, it's here that the Hitchcock's movie "the man knew too much " was filmed. Come and taste our refined moroccan cuisine.
