Felt like a cruise ship. Tour groups everywhere. Food was bland, waitstaff unfriendly, and their credit card machine was "broken" so we had to pay with cash. They also charge for the "dinner spectacle" show. Avoid this tourist trap at all cost.

I see that there is another place that is called "Al Fassia" but we went to this one "Restaurant al Fassia" and we were in one of the two tour groups there.

The decor was lovely, the service good, the entertainment appealed to the group and the food enjoyable.

Like the Riad round the corner that sent us here, the restaurant is very beautiful.
Very good service, friendly, helpful waiters.
Starters were substantial and delicious. Tagine/couscous combo later in our holiday became tedious, but this was one of the better ones.
Entertaining Toureg and Berber floor show although 2 belly dancers seems one too many. The musicians were superb and created a lovely atmosphere.
Rather pricey - nowhere else in our 12 days in Morocco charged as much, and does not take cards.

However, the night we got locked out of our Riad, they took us in, gave us tea and pastries and contacted the Riad manager for us - many thanks!
