“Average at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

The sort of place where they make a fuss that you haven't made a reservation - even though it was never mre than 10% full in the 2 hours we were there.

Decor is good - food and service is average at best. Starter course was carpaccio - nicely arranged - and haricot verts with duck lardons, but the lardons seem to have been bolied and not fried.

Veal Millanese was good, but moules were the worst I have ever seen or tasted, Size of a thunbnail and cooked to the texture of bullets. The sauce for the moules was a very uninterseting grey......

Desserts were ok.

Sevice was slow, with the main waiter seeming to spend most of his time sat at a table by himself. My complaint about the moules seemed to create much discussion and surprise amongst the waiters - but no response to me.

Bill was wrong - in our favour. Would normally have pointed this out - but not this time.

“A good alternative while in Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2010

We decided to include this French cuisine restaurant in our itinerary while in Marrakech as a break from delicious though slightly monotonous Moroccan cuisine.

The hotel is very elegant, especially the exterior, a modern interpretation of a walled Berber village we thought. The restaurant was very international in its decor (elegant and smart - slightly clubby), not a hint of the kasbar, or Arabian Nights! We could have been in Paris or even New York or London. It actually made a nice change for the evening. The china and glass wear was particularly elegant.

Service was a little disappointing - the main waiter we had brought the wrong wine and was a little clumsy in his serving. We had two other waiters as well who were much more polished. The restaurant was not very busy either.

The food was good international fair - the starters were good (beef carpaccio and a goats cheese salad). The mains were good too if unremarkable (chicken and fish). However, the desserts were exceptional, a perfect hand crafted mille feuille and a rich chocolate and coffee torte.

The bill was not overtly expensive (not a budget option either) and it was a refreshing alternative in menus.
