When we arrived the very friendly manager showed us around the Riad and told us a little about its history. We had a choice of tables and chose to sit on the roof terrace in a lovely tented area. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and a funny guy. He made us feel welcomed and was not too intrusive. It almost felt like we had a private dining as there was only one more table dining on the roof in the other tent/canopy area and once they had left it was just us.
We enjoyed the excellent vegetarian set meal. Had savoury pastries and lots of Moroccan salad dishes to go along with it. Followed by sweet potato tagine and vegetable cous cous and a very nice dessert. Mint tea and sweet pastries to finish. Food was very tasty. It's perhaps not the cheapest but we were very happy to pay. 90 euros plus tip for 2 set dinners, bottle of wine and water. Not bad really.

The lamb tagine is beautiful. So much food, it just keeps coming. Choice of eating on the roof terrace or in the sumptuous restaurant.

What a lovely place to have dinner. You walk through some questionable alleys and enter through a small doorway into a beautiful old home that has been lovingly restored. We had drinks on the rooftop and then dinner out in the garden next to the pool. Too many dishes to count, but all were delicious. I just wish we could have eaten it all!

the owner is a man of culture.He remained tue to the spirit of tradition and history.No fakes in his rooms,no experimentation in his food...all true ,a delightful touch,just as the decoration of the building,the mild breeze on the terrace,all is romantic,secluded and human.And all is affordable.

We had an afternoon here learning to cook Morrocan tagine of lamb and some little bread things - the riad is gorgeous - like them all in Marakesh - you go in and feel as though you have stepped into another world from the dusty streets and crazyness, we were made to feel at home instantly and after an hour in the hot kitchen we got to sit on the roof terrace with a bottle of wine or six, and waiting for out tagine to be served to us - lovely friendly staff, well recommended.
