“Christmas Night Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Atmosphere fantastic, food was amazing. Would prefer if there was an alternative to the set menu as just so much food.
Wonderful experience would highly recommend.

“Lovely atmosphere and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The restaurant is in traditional riad with seating in the interior courtyard and upstairs too. (When we were there, the courtyard was covered.) The interior is fantastic: Moroccan carpets, candles, live music etc. The food was also very good. We were offered the set menu which was 4-5 courses and included the wine (that was not the best i have ever had). It was a little expensive (by local standards), around 50 eur/person, but we really enjoyed our night in this restaurant and would recommend it.

“Fantastic new year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you never thought you'd see Baloo the bear dancing, get there for a New Year party and watch the waiters join in! Great food, super evening. A swine to find - get them to send someone out to the road to lead you in or you'll never find it.

“So so!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Not a bad experience, but it could have been better if the service was more attentive. This restaurant is located in the old Medina of Marrakesh and it has been quite difficult to find it. The Moroccan set menu was great in terms of taste, but too much... and after the first 2 dishes we had only few morsels of the rest. The decor and atmosphere are nice with an ethnic band playing a bit too noisy music.
Rather expensive especially when you pay for dishes that you haven’t eaten

“Great locale, good and plentiful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The locale and ambience is unbeatable. If you're a couple, this is an amazing date place. It is the type of restaurant you would only find in Morocco. The menu was fixed and came with wine. There was a lot of food. The salads were tasty as were the tagine and couscous. The food was not as good was Al Fassia or Ksar Es Essouan, but it was still good. Make sure you go hungry because the portions are rather big and the courses keep coming.

The one bad thing was that they had these two musicians come by each table (the music was good and the guys were funny) buskering for money. For me it kind of cheapens the experience and is somewhat tasteless to be solicited for money while you are trying to enjoy your meal. The restaurant has a more serious atmosphere than other restaurants we went to, such as Ksar Es Essouan, that were more laid back.
