We ate here on our first night in Marrakech after stumbling on it in the afternoon... Gorgeous interior - an old palace converted to a restaurant with various huge rooms. We were walked straight past one of the rooms which was very very lively and...More

A friend recommended this restaurant to us as 'must see' whilst visiting Marrakech. Nice interior but food was pretty mediocre, waiting staff not very polished compared to many other restaurants and quite honestly I didn't really rate it. Many other places to eat which are...More

Very easy to miss from the narrow street but when you look down into the entrance and see the tiled walls and fountain it's as though you're entering a labyrinth of tiled walls and have stepped back to the time of the sultans. There are...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.
