A class act, with some of the best traditonal Morrocan food in town, excellent service, in a relaxed non-tourist atmosphere. Even the locals eat here !

Great salad to start. Tagine lovely. Staff pretty and grumpy, they could learn to smile. Overall great food if you don't mind poor service.

Recommended by all the critics this female run restaurant has had rave reviews. The interior is not overtly Moroccan but very pleasant with gentle lighting and walls painted alternately dark red and cream. I did feel howver that the tables were very close together, throughout our meal the waitress' rear end was presented to us as she squeezed past to... More

It's such a shame that what is probably the best kitchen in Marrakech (salads to die for, divine cousous and tagines) gets seriously let down by front of house service. Wait staff border on the rude. We had to ask twice for aperitis and the food - when it finally arrived - was just plonked down in front of us.... More

First, you go here for the food, like a pilgrimage or something. You're not here to be wowed by fancy decor, or fawned over by jacketed toady waiters. The decor is quite lovely, and the service more decent than some folks indicate, but that's not why you're there. Morocco is a country with wonderful ingredients, and millennia of tradition with...

I am going to have to agree with the last review. We went to Al Fassia this past weekend because of its high rating on Trip Advisor and because we had read another article listing it as a great place for a fine meal. We arrived for lunch with a reservation and the food was excellent. I had the lamb... More

We had a delicious meal in Al Fassia (the Rue Zerktouni location) that was unfortunately overshadowed by the worst service we encountered anywhere during our time in Morocco It all got off to a bad start when the waitress ticked us off for arriving a few minutes later than our reservation. We were then told that we would not be... More

The first thing to say is be aware that there are two Al Fassia restaurants (both run by the same people) in two different locations. Not realising this, we asked our riad to book us a table at Al Fassia, assuming this meant the venue in our guide book, and set off in a taxi to the Guéliz area. You... More

OK..this place comes highly recommended in all the guide books... mains are about 15 pounds sterling... it has 2 locations and the one in the guide books on 232 mohammed v is the one we went to. This is a prime example of a place that now has made it in to a guide book and is absolutely overrated. Nothing... More
