“Wow, awesome dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

For our final evening in our 2-week-holiday in Morocco we decided to make our last dinner special. And we were brought by fate to Les Jardins de la Medina and the awesome experience still linger in our memory. First, the service from the very start to the very end was impeccable. Everything and everyone seemed to be so well-coordinated that our glasses were never empty and the timing from one service to the next is just so much in harmony. People were not only clearly excellent in their work but they were all so pleasing and kind and one can only imagine that these people love what they do. Secondly, we had excellent recommendations for wines, and the wonderful lady who acted as the "sommelier" advised us the best Moroccan wines and indeed they were! It was also so special to think that she would offer us the option to taste test a bottle and if we don't like it (not necessarily if it has corkage problem, just simply if we don't like it that), she will recommend and open another bottle for us. Wow, what flexibility! But all the wines she offered were among the best we've had so far. And thirdly, the food was Michelin-star good! My starter was a layer of aubergine and avocado and my hubby had a typical Morrocan dish with a twist and both were a delight. We both had Tanjia de souris d'agneau safranée aux pommes grenaille, served ceremoniously like in most starred restaurants and it was melting in the mouth with all its spices and savor. Not to forget that before we had our dishes, the excellent lady offered us a bowl of their delicious Ramadan soup (Harira?) which they share for free to hotel guests. Oh we were pampered! We dined in the terrace surrounded by greenery and serenaded by a gentleman playing traditional music to which every now and then the waiters would hum or sing softly along with. Superb ambiance! So romantic too! We told all the people we met the next day to try this restaurant because we love to share great experiences. Les Jardins is now in our highly recommended restos and in our to-go-back-to-list the next time we're in Marrakech! Thank you and bravo!

“Really nice place but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Great food and service if a bit on the pricey side. Not a good place for families or youngish girls as you have to get down some pretty rough streets to get anywhere. No problem if you are happy to use taxis they are reliable and fairly cheep

“Rainforest in the middle of Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Loved it. Amazing food. I got duck and it was amazing. The atmosphere and decorations were so nice, reminded me of having a nice romantic dinner in the middle of a rainforest. Definitely recommend it!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

You never know what is behind a closed door.

What can I stay, as soon as the door opens you are blown away. We ate near the pool in the gardens, the tables are a good enough distance apart so you are not to close to other diners. The food was really tasty, my husband said the monk fish was the best he had had.
