Food was fine. It's a fixed menu. They have someone who meets you at one of the gates of the Old Medina and walks you to the restaurant which is down a narrow ally and around a couple corners off a main part of the medina. You have to knock to get in. Location, authentic design, music, etc. all make... More

Reading the other reviews before dining here at the invitation of friends, I did not have super high expectations. The walk deep into the medina's winding lanes was a great precursor to the meal. The interior decor has a wonderful old world feel and a walk up to the rooftop at sunset yields a wonderful vantage point over the rooftops.... More

A jewel in Rabat medina! Need to go through a part of the souk then through a small street and then you will enter a Riad where you will be welcomed by a very joyful team and you will experience a delightful local food!

We found this restaurant by chance. Entering, we were welcomed by a guy in a typical moroccan dress and 2 waitresses served us. There was some live music in the form of a young guy playing and singing moroccan songs. The menu is fixed. 400mad per person. Wine was not available, only beer. Everything, from the setting to the dresses... More

What a beautiful place. The food is good but do yourself a favor and climb the numerous flights of stairs to the observation deck on the roof. The appetizer juice drinks are very flavorful. The waitstaff is dressed in traditional Moroccan attire. The Moroccan tea pouring is its own spectacle. There was a live musician playing the Friday night our... More

This restaurant, Le Ziryab, is tucked away in the middle of a maze of old town alleys in the old town. The traditional Moroccan cuisine is phenomenal. You can find it by following signs posted in the old town shopping area. Frankly, it is not so easy to see, so in case of need, feel free to ask the locals.... More

Not correct. Low quality food. Promised menu and music were not offered. Bill based on head count and not on ordered food. Kids counted as adults. This place should be closed for being a trap. Menu is not shown. Prices are hidden. Our night was ruined.

Don't be dazzled by the relatively good looking Moroccan interior design, the restaurant, the food and the menu is a big lie. Touching base with the restaurant over the phone, they listed numerous entertainment from belly dancers to moroccan singers ..., when we got there, there was nothing but a solo playing Oud and he left 20 minutes later....
