“Bring your appetite!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Le Tobsil was our first dinner experience in Marrakech and wow it did not disappointment. Amazing variety of food on the fixed menu, and the portions were just amazing in both size and flavors. We would recommend you arrive very, very hungry because you'll want to consume everything that's put in front of you.

Delicious meal!

“A secret door to a great experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wandering the back streets of the Madinet looking for Le Tobsil is enough to challenge anyone's faith in their sense of direction. On the verge of giving up, you will find an uninspiring door in a dark unlit alley. Go through it. The experience is more than worth it.

The inner courtyard if this elegant and cozy Riad is the setting for a great culinary experience. No choices (other than the wine, if you want) and a thousand and one plates of authentic (and good) marroccan cuisine will arrive and leave you bursting and entertained.

Surprising, memorable and worth every Dhinar.

A small but beautiful restaurant. MANY courses - all of which were beautifully presented in small portions. A treat for the senses!

“Quirky Morrocan restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great experience and a beautiful riad. We had the morrocan tasting menu - plenty of food but a little bland. It's definitely worth a visit but when booking ask if here is an al a carte menu as that may be better value.

“Fabulous food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We booked this restaurant in advance of our trip as it had been highly recommended. It certainly didn't disappoint and the food just kept coming and coming. Everything served was typically Morrocan and of a very high standard. Our only criticism would be that there was too much food and we felt a little embarrassed at not being able to eat it all! We loved the ambience and the ethnic music. There is no way you could find your own way there in the dark and we were met by a guide to take us through the back alleyways. What a little gem when we did arrive!
