Description: Situated on the edge of a palm plantation just outside of Marrakesh, the exclusive boutique Palais Dar Ambre resort is ideal for discreet romantic holidays. Infused with exotic spices and aromas, the kitchen at the hotel's restaurant is headed up by chef Xavier Mathieu – who is an admirer of Auguste Escoffier and Joel Robuchon. Mathieu's French/Moroccan menu is exquisite, and the Dar Ambre restaurant seamlessly spreads from the indoors dining room through sweeping curtains to the sheltered al fresco terrace. Surrounded by palms, and the scent of roses and jasmine, this is a divine place to dine – and signature dishes at Dar Ambre include the thinly sliced beef served with fresh mint served with fragrant gnocchi.

“OK, Way overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is your basic tourist trap restaurant. Good location, nice atmosphere, mediocre food. It was recommended by a tour guide and I would not be surprised if there was a "relationship" . Most people visiting Marrakech are going to be a little daring anyway. This is not Paris. I think 100% of the people at the place were out of towners!
There was a cheap music show which I am sure was designed to increase the price a bit. The meal was price fixed at 650DH and there were only 3 choices in each category. They were not very exciting choices either. I think you get the message,
