“Gone was the umbrella”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is a funky place.Surprising in its decoration,and,for the service.As usual,the Morrocans are kind,yet ,often not up to par.El Fenn is luxury,also in its prices.The service is average.The bar is located practically in the restaurant.If you have a drink you watch the diners,whether you like to or not,or the other way around.It seems to be British clients oriented,since the owner is from the island,yet the owner seems to be absent often .I went with friends to dinner a few weeks ago:the waiters were unattentive,never asked whether we like the food and the wine we had to serve ourselves.It was raining.When we left,the umbrella was gone,and someone promised to call the next day.Never did.One day I was there,they did not want to be paid
in cash,only credit cards,the next cash was fine.As above:everyone was smiling,but efficiency suffered.

“Great Night”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

A magical place, where people were so welcoming that we couldn't even leave them !!

Rooms are unbelievable, like the one with the private swimming pool up the room.
Don't hesitate one second, go go go !!!

“nice restaurant and riad”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

this restaurant is owned by Branson's sister. We really appreciated the place which is exceptionnaly decorated and well located. The restaurant is nice and tasty and the drink in the lounge with the view is wonderful. I recommend this place. a little bit costy but worth it. Not far from jemaa el fna place

“Reliable reasonable great location”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

We are staying in this popular Riad and tried the food. Breakfast is more than adequate but dinner can be very good for this city with the NYE event Providing good food and great atmosphere if with slow service.

“Delicious.”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

I stayed here, and ended up eating dinner in the restaurant three times. The food was phenomenal. We had clean, simple, gourmet prix fixe (3 course) meals. A refreshing alternative to the omnipresent tagines and couscous.
