“A warm welcome and excellent steaks”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We discovered this lovely French style Restaurant by accident one lunchtime. Walked in a got a card - liked the look of the place - very traditional French in a modern block but tucked away in the New town. Cracked a joke with waiter and decided to go back that night. A great decision.

The food was fabulous - steaks - and the wine good value for Marrakech. Excellent friendly service and not too smoky. Interesting place with a very nice ambience and not a few ex pat Frenchmen with their Moroccan mistresses!!

It was a tempting meal, the service was really nice, funny and friendly. The mixture of the people gave a pleasant athomsphere and finally the head of the restaurant invited us to a drink.
In conclusion we had a wonderful evening!

“Been there 3 times already in 9 days”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Very authentically French. The atmosphere is just superb. Felt very welcome each time we visited.

The staff are extremely friendly and that includes Rachid, Samir and of course Foad as well as the rest of the staff.

The food is good. Wine is excellent. And again, atmosphere is seriously amazing. Do not miss out on this place.

“Think Parisian Brassarie”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

I loved the old Bagatelle and was extremely sad to see it closed and bulldozed for an apartment block. I am, however, extremely happy to find it re opened by the same family that have had it for over fifty years and only metres away from the old site. The decor is the same, with wonderful black and white photographs of the family and Marrakech, spread over decades.

The menu and service is as good as ever and it was wonderful to see the same staff that were there before it was closed, over five years ago. My partner and I always eat there as soon as we arrive in Marrakech and we make it a tradition, that it is the last place in which we eat before we leave.

Great location, easy to get to and any taxi driver knows it.

The clientele are mainly ex pats and locals and that too adds something special. If you eat at The Bagatelle, you really feel part of Marrakech life and it's history, more than just a tourist passing through.
