The food was ok, service was pretty good (fast) although the girls could smile a bit more. The athmosphere was not too great and I personally thought the prices were a bit too high for Morroccan standards.

Two words: amazing food. This restaurant has great decoration, sophisticated but relaxed, intimist (great for couples or small groups) but the ost important thing, the food is even better than the looks! Well worth it for the price (although a bit pricy) as the quality and quantity of food will certainly leave you with a smile. Staff is friendly although... More

We tried to find the best restaurants in Marrakech and this was the best. The food was stunning. The menu is a la carte so you can choose how much you want to eat. Having said that, the vegetable tasting starter came in no less than twelve separate (tiny) dishes. All beautifully prepared and distinctive. The pastilla of pigeon was... More

Went there in November for my birthday. This restaurant was outstanding. We had none of the petulance described by other people and the staff were brilliant and helpful with the meal choices. The salad mezze was outstanding. Just for information: The restaurant is run by women only. It is a female co-operative and they should be applauded for just that.... More

Excellent service, excellent food, what more to say? The prices are somewhat over the Moroccan curve, and closer to what you may expect from a decent European restaurant, but the experience is definitely worth every penny. Try the lamb shoulder - the meat literally melts in your mouth.

The comments from earlier reviewers about the infamous service here are all true!! It was just hilarious to watch the waitresses in the flesh ... clock watching, tutting away at diners, shouting at each other and practically throwing plates onto tables. Fortunately for them, the chef is definitely a bit of a star as the food produced here are of... More

We were recommended to go to Al Fassia for our Christmas lunch whilst visiting Marrakech and it definitely lived up to expectations. The food was fantastic - amazing choice of tagines and local cuisine with wonderful flavours. The salads starter is a fantastic array of mezze's which shouldnt be missed either! Highly recommended!
