It has been the best experience in marakesh, from the service to each of the plates they have served. They bake exquisite french-style bread. Just wonderful!

We went here because the restaurant we wanted to go to was full. Should’ve searched for another place: the food was bad and the ambiance too. It was the worst diner I had in Marrakech in a week. The lemon juice was mixed with water:...it was more water than juice. The bread was really dry and hard. The meat was overcooked. The waiter told us to tip him, which I found kind of rude, because he didn’t even check up on us during our meal. He wasn’t even visibly present. My advice: just walk past Restaurant Cherif... There are way way better spots more into the Medina.More

When you actually return to a restaurant on the second day in Marrakech, you know the food is good! The Tajine Marrakech was nice & spicy and very tender meat (ask for Harissa if you want extra spice). The chicken pasta was a great appetizer,...a mixture of savory and sweet. Very nice. Zoobair was very nice and explained all the dishes in English. Mint tea started us off for a great meal!More

The oldest Riad in Marrakech offers a brilliant opportunity to relax and enjoy great food in a relaxed environment. Lovely staff.

Was empty at peak times, shouldn't have accepted my friends idea to eat here but I had my guard down and the rest is history. Ordered apple juice, was given orange juice which had to be eaten with a fork, was more like chunky soup....Would not be the least bit surprised if Heinz next limited edition soup is inspired by this establishment. Olives looked ill. The waiter informed us how much we should tip him, which was very generous of him. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something to doMore

We liked the look of this restaurant as we walked by on most days of our visit so decided to eat there on Tuesday. However, they are shut on Tuesday so we went on Wednesday. First, although the wood fire was on it was cold....Next, my wife decided to have the chicken and vegetable tagine and I had the mixed grill. The chicken was tough and stringy as was some of the meat on my skewers. My wife had a reasonable size portion but mine was quite small and I was glad of the bread to help pad out my meal. The cost was not excessive but we would happily paid more for better.More

Whilst walking around a wet and cold Marrakech, we stopped in for dinner at one of the famous restaurants on the main square, after 15 mins of waiting we upped and left. Looking down one of the side streets we decided to take a walk...and stumbled across this little gem. The outside doesn't do it justice and don't be put off by the scribbled menu and cheap prices. The inside is beautifully decorated and a welcome change to the busy square 2 mins away. The restaurant was quite empty as I'm not sure you can tell much from the street, but trust me, it's worth heading inside. If I had one tip for the owner it would be to sit your guests in the front part of the restaurant so it looks busier, sometimes people are put off by the lack of clientele. The food is ridiculously cheap and yummy. I would thoroughly recommend stepping off the square to this little gem.More

We visited in February when the evenings are cool and the fire was a welcome draw. The service was efficient and friendly, the food hot and tasty and the dishes were a third of the price of restaurants on the main square.

We were promised kids eat free pricing as "it is a slow night" stated the heavy set middle aged owner. The alleged owner was not to be seen after delivery of our mediocre meals which seemed to take forever to arrive. The wait staff said...they had no knowledge of any such arrangement. We paid and left. This was our only bad restaurant experience (out of several) in Morocco.More
