Very discusting, not fresh food at all I am very disappointed, I think they can not afford to make fresh food, because it's very quite, we were alone in the restaurant at 21h30

We come to Marrakech every year and we always come to this place one day for lunch. It is cheap, local and the roast lamb is good. Half a kilo for two people is enough. Until now. This last time we went there as always...and the waiter Omar asked mechui for two? I made the mistake of saying yes without specifying half a kilo and Omar thought ok,I and going to rip these tourists off, so he brought one kilo of a part which was mostly skin, fat and ribs. We ended up paying twice the normal price and eating a few chunks of meat. I don't know whether it was Omar's idea to screw us or someone else, but the result is that I will not go back.More

Ok the tangier I had here was amazing. These guys dont sacrifice quality. It's very busy so sit down and expect a little wait. But the food was worth it. Also had slow roasted lamb which was so good. Overall my favourite meal in Marrakech.

After reading all the good reviews about this place we decided to go for a mid afternoon snack. We arrived around 3pm, upon arriving the place was full of locals and we instantly felt out of place, however keen to try some locals snacks we...proceeded to order two drinks two portions of chips and some olives. After ordering and sitting at a table a second waiter arrived to tell us we were not welcome unless we ordered a main meal as we had to spend a certain amount of money... Feeling awkward we spoke again to the original waiter who said we could stay however this kind of ruined our experience....More

Amazing little place and very friendly and accommodating. The lamb is amazing that they cook and if you ask nicely they will show you the oven they cook them in. They sell it the lamb per Kilo so be careful as we asked for a...small portion around half a kilo but they massively overcharged us. To be fair due to how good it was and how cheap we paid it and left. The cumin salt is amazing they serve it with.More

After reading reviews, visited with friends. Speaking with locals at the neighbouring table, we ordered 1kg of roast lamb with bread. Really, really tasty lamb - would absolutely recommend a visit. Choose to sit outside on the top floor - definitely the best location.

After reading about this place and being shown the lamb cooking process the day before, we had to try and were not disappointed. We arrived at 12.50pm (we weer advised 1pm was a good time) and were able to get a table downstairs straight away....We had a half neck Mechoui and it was beautiful. Super lean, hardly any fat, piping hot, cridpy and perfect! With some bread and the spiced salt, it was so so good. Highly recommend it to anyone wanting an authentic experience.More

Thanks to TA reviewers who preceded me, I knew to arrive early around 11. Eating solo, I was directed to a seat at the communal table near the fire pit (all locals except for me). As a result, I received a front-row view of the...extraction process (made a video). The choicest cut for me is the meat near the tendons. Hychem at my riad kindly wrote me the word in Arabic, “Mlouja”. I ordered a 1/4 kilo for 50 dh. It was tender and succulent. I really wanted seconds but as I had already broken my commitment not to eat lamb (and other baby animals), I convinced myself that it was enough. A good experience.More

The best lamb ever tasted. Really good food and environment. In the medina, really close to main square.

I’d seen this restaurant on cooking shows in the Uk so wanted to visit myself. It’s extremely busy so u will have to queue for a table, but it’s worth the wait. The staff work very hard up and down the many flights of stairs....We opted for the roast lamb to share between 4 of us, with local bread and a bottle of water at only €18 for lunch, bargain. The lamb is quite fatty but the meat is so tender and falls off the bone. The staff were all friendly even tho they were so busy and showed us the hole in the ground were they cook the whole lambs. A must when visiting Marrakesh.More
