After 5 years I made it back to le Relais du Lac at which I have somewhat of a history. With our team of 22 we enjoyed lunch at what is arguably one of the most magical places of Marrakech. Located roughly 30 kilometers from the city on the reservoir Lac Lalla Takerkoust, Le Relais is a must go on... More

We stopped here for lunch as part of a horse riding day. Good service, good food and fantastic views. We finished off with coffee and jumped back on the horses. Wonderful!

This restaurant is SPECIAL!! It sits on the edge of a lake, overlooking the snow tipped Atlas mountains, yet has a feel that encompasses many different cultures. The place is run by a trio of very experienced, classy operators, the principal lady spoke perfect english, her native french, and moroccan. The food also was a mix of french, and arabic,... More

We didn't eat here as we weren't hungry but the food being served looked good. The wine & beer were UK prices 170 DH for a... More

We went to this place, which I think has a new name and a new owner now, at the end of our visit to the lake. Staff was very friendly and the French-Finnish owner came and asked about the food. She was very interested in our opinion, made suggestion about the food and was personnally involved to achieve several customers'... More

We didn't stay at the hotel (and thank god), but we stopped over for a meal. As we entered the hotel and walked down to the restaurant a man approached us asking us ''table for two?'' when clearly table for 4 was needed, after making a wise comment on our Moroccan clothing we were finally seated. We all where utterly... More

A Breton escape 30min drive from Morocco. The road is easy and beautiful, so we enjoyed a ride. We had a table with the lake view, the cote de boeuf was great as well as the atmosphere. The only negative thing - this live music following us! Middle-aged French man singing classic/old French songs. I wish they just had calm... More
