Nice place to eat food was very nice. Would recommend but advise to go there later. I had the steak and chips and my wife had a lamb tagine. Well prepared and presented.

Distilling all Marrakech's cosmopolitan flair into a signature dining experience, Le Trou au Mur is an absolute must for weekend explorers and seasoned medina gourmets alike.

What a super review, thank you very much I think my favorite quote has to be "an idiosyncratic blend of Moroccan and European traditionalism delivered with urbane sophistication." I very much hope that we can look forward to welcoming you back very soon!

Description
Le Trou au Mur brings a breath of fresh air to the Marrakech restaurant scene. Chic, laid back, fun, relaxed, intimate and comfortable but, above all, totally serious about food. Set in a small riad in the oldest part of the medina, the décor is a unique blend of superb local craftsmanship with the best of modern European style.
