10 of us went here for dinner while on a business trip on our first night. The restaurant is off of a side street in the market, tucked away and has it's own private courtyard which is beautifully lit at night and has a wonderful feel to it. The inside dining is expansive with typically Moroccan design and is impressive.... More

This is one of those miraculous places that's hidden behind a door in the medina that looks like any other door. Then you walk through, follow a path down the steps, and wow! It's a mosaic-tiled garden with trees and birds and a fountain... Granted, it's clearly targeting tourists; the whole place is set up for tour groups and there's... More

Came here with a large group on the first night of a trip. We had a set menu due to the size of our group. Starters were a variety of Moroccan salads - these were distributed across the tables and it was interesting as there were lots of different flavours to try with really delicious freshly baked bread. The main... More

This tourist trap restaurant was adequate, but my vegetarian tagine contained a piece of animal fat. The explanation was that the vegetables had been stirred with the same spoon as the meat tagines. This is totally unacceptable and I would not recommend this place as it obviously has extremely poor kitchen practices

Marrakech is famous for its hustle and bustle, it's a game enjoy!, we were certainly hustled into this place by 'helpful' local!!, so it's a FAIR COP on us. Thine fixed price menu clearly states 400MAD per person and the wine was 400MAD both about twice what you would pay elsewhere.......we chose to stay and 'paid the price' (go see... More
