“Awful place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

We visited this restaurant at the end of May for dinner, and whilst the setting was nice with cocktails in the garden the food was awful. The beef carpaccio was definitely not what it was supposed to be and the steak wasn't either. It was I inedible and not beef! Once we politely complained they totally lost interest and didn't offer us dessert or coffee. At least the didn't charge us for the steak, and the bill was still over £ 60. Do yourself a favour and give this place a miss as there are much nicer places to eat in Marrakech.

“Nice setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

The setting and the service in this restaurant is super. Its interesting and unusual with the tables around the pool, and provides both an intimate and lively ambience. The food is very nice, I had some salad with parma ham to start, and both my husband and I had a chicken dish to follow. All the dishes were beautifully presented and tasty, but the sting in the tail is the price, which is Why i awarded this restauarant an average. We had one bottle of water and one glasse of wine and one starter each and one main course and it cost £60. Heston Blumenthals "Dinner" has a set menu lunch for £32, which is 100 times more skillfull in its execution, taste etc etc and its in a prime central London position, so why does a place in the back streets of Marrakech think it can charge these prices? Go to Brahims No1 or 2 just off Jmeea el Fna for a comperable food quality meal, not so good setting, but half the price. We regret having gone there, it was a waste of money.

“Great atmosphere, ok food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012 via mobile

Great to have cocktails up front in garden. Lovely quiet place in the midst of new city. Restaurant has great atmosphere around the pool. Staff friendly and helpfull. Food and menu is good, but not excellent. Still worth a visit and enjoy the evening and atmosphere.

“A lovely meal and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

I definitely recommend you try this restaurant, the setting is lovely set around a pool, definitely ask for a table outside. We went on a Tuesday night and it was fairly busy. I had the fish which was excellent. Also arrive early to have drinks as the bar is nice. It's quite romantic and very relaxed.

“Decent but not what expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Having seen this high up on restaurants to visit in marrakech my partner and I booked a table on our last night Wed 14th March for 9.30. We arrived to a lovely bar and seating area having a few drinks before we proceeded to the restaurant. We sat down at a table next to the pool which I must say was a beautiful setting for any romantic couple. Our waiter was friendly and service was good. However, the menu is a typical italian menu with nothing that jumps out at you. The starters were fine nothing spectacular that they could go wrong with although the cheese and tomato tart my wife ordered was more like a pizza base with melted cheese and a few cut tomato's on top. As soon as the plates were taken away the main course had arrived. This really angered me as we obviously didn't have enough time for our food to digest. The main course was not great. I had seabass which was ok enough but the vegtables weren't cooked well and soggy. My wife had lasagne which looked pretty awful and didn't satisfy her and the tiramasu wasn't much better. An average restaurant that didn't live up to expectations. Had a lot better in Marrakech!
