“You'll never taste roast lamb like this anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

At £80.00 for two, there are cheaper restaurants in Marrakech, but when you consider the beautiful gardens, the lovely ambiance and surroundings, and the wonderful food, then this place represents very good value for a truly special evening. My wife and I had the pancakes to start (wow) and then the roast lamb, a dish for two that was simply wonderful,it is a must if you go here...... for pudding we had the pineapple tart which was a masterpiece in food art besides tasting as good as it looked. Service was good and the Gres Rose wine was just perfect.....all in all faultless, and without a doubt will be on our return list when we visit crazy but wonderful Marrakech. Table tip: ask for a table outside in the gardens by the pool.....

“beautiful surroundings ... service ...meah..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

you enter the hotel from a beaten up street, its a beautiful riad in the Kasbah district. Upon arrival lots of french speaking staff in uniforms.. seems like it will be a good experience. Sat down in restaurant.. waited... staff looked at us and ignored us... waited. about 10 minutes.. got up and asked what was happening... told food was only being served in the bar... OK.. schleeped into the bar, waited... barman watched us.. waited 5 minutes .. stalemate... gestured for menu.. brought cocktail menu, asked for food menu.... waited... asked for supervisor, ordered food .. nobody asked us if we wanted ANY DRINKS.. its 38 degrees...! waited... 40 minutes, food arrived on the bar... we watched it..waited..barman watched it.. waited... asked for him to bring it over. Ate food it was good... still no offer of drinks.. Demanded bill.. paid left.. over an hour waiting... Had it not have been scorching outside we would have left after first idiotic wait.

“Great setting and location..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Following trip advisor reviews and also our riad owner, we went to Le Jardin one evening this week during our short stay. Overall a great choice - lovely setting, good food (I had the chicken lemon tagine) and decent wine. Service a bit brusque to begin with (hence just the 4 stars), but overall no complaints and we would go there again.

“delicious food in a nice riad in the south medina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

When you want to have a nice dinner in the center of the south medina , in a nice garden , then you have to go there. It is a 10 min walk from the jamaa el fna , but worth the walk. The food is very good , as well the lunch menu as dinner are fantastic.

“Very nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

A hidden gem in the medina. We ate there twice during our 4 days trip. The food was very good, especially the pastilla, fish tajine and beef steak. The atmosphere was very nice and the waiters are very friendly. They also have a good selection of Moroccan wine. We love all the food and wine that we tried.
