“Yum....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

On a trip to Morocco we were guided to dinner at this lovely restaurant by the wonderful manager of Dar Les Cigognes. The interior was gorgeous, food excellent and the music perfect. I would recommend using a driver and not trying to find this spot on your own as you have to wander part of the souk to find it. Definitely worth the effort.

“Come on people”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a totally average restaurant food wise, pretty setting , with ridiculous musicians that play one song and never take a break. For the price of 3 great meals anywhere else in Marrakech I do not understand how anyone rates them highly if they have ever eaten out before.

“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!
