I eat at Ben Youssef's EVERY single night that I'm in Marrakech - it's amazing!!! I'm here right now, enjoying the most succulent fish tagine and a pastilla :) years ago, I would travel to Marrakech every few months; and I would sample various restaurants in the Medina. All of the hundreds I tried had flavors that were slightly "off"... More

After walking past multiple times during our Marrakech visit, we are glad we kept our promise to come and dine here. Enjoyed dining on the Terrace with tasty fish and chicken tagines, and delicious specialty dessert chakhchoukha.

I had the mixed grill which was delectable, especially the lamb chops in there which were the best I have had. My friend had... More

We found this restaurant by chance, having eaten at two expensive and not so good restaurants the nights before. We ate on the terrace, accompanied by a musician who played quietly in the background. The staff were perfect, and the food delicious. We had the 130 dirham menu which was great value for money and very well cooked. It's really... More

Ate here on the roof terrace good tasty inexpensive traditional fare. Large restaurant on 3 floors, lower floors cool in summer heat owner explained many locals like to eat there to escape the heat. Wish I had found it before the last day and it was so close to my Riad would have eaten there more often.

This is a lovely restaurant in the heart of the Marrakech Medina with a terrace that presents amazing 360 views of Marrakech. The food was very tasty - on par, if not better than the food at fancier & pricier, El Fassia. The service was exceptional. Highly recommend!
