We were a bit disappointed in our visit to this restaurant, considering the number of positive reviews it received. On a busy weekend in Marrakech, we were worried about getting a table, but were surprised to find ourselves as the only customers in the place.

The limited set menu was fine for us, but might be problematic for diners wanting a degree of choice. However, the food was rather bland -- not really worth the 20 EUR price being asked, considering the number of good restaurants we visited for much less during our trip.

The rooftop dining area was pleasant and the service adequate, but nothing more. There are better options in Marrakech.

Refined, Moroccan-inspired food was a delicious find at this hidden-away dinner-only restaurant. The space is modern and eclectic, and the wait staff very on top of things. We loved every dish, but especially the chocolate/coffee parfait that ended the meal. We could have licked the dish clean, it was that good.

Not enough staff meant the service was slow and a little slap dash. The food was just ok, with the fish dish over cooked. But the idea was right. Its a little out of the way so all in all im not sure i'd make the effort to go again. Didn't live up to expectations.

Found this through one of our guide books. I was a little skeptical about a guide book recommendation, but searching the internet and Trip Advisor wasn't producing much else. We actually tried going before, but it turns out they were closed on Tuesday (our riad manager tells us that many restaurants in Marrakech are closed on Tuesdays, something the guide books fail to mention). I left a message on the answering machine, not realizing that the machine said they were closed (it was in French, which I do not speak). So, we called back on Wed to make a reservation on Fri. Tip: it is really helpful to speak French, because whoever answers the phone does not speak English. The food was very good; they use fresh ingredients and determine the menu based on what is available. Perfect for a couple: my wife and I ordered one of each item so we got to try everything they had available that night (set menu, 2 choices per course). Ambience was relaxing and modern. Great value! (We went to Bo-Zin the following night, which was not worth it -- see my review).

We didn't reserve a table but were welcomed to one of the two remaining when we arrived about 9pm. With two choices for each course of the 230dh menu we opted to try them all between the two of us. All delicious - perfecly cooked and presented. The service was attentive and polite. The night (March 22nd) was cool but we were warm in this minimalist riad. It is a bit out of the way down an alleyway signposted to (and past) Palais Gharnata, mid way between Dar Tiskiwin and Musee Dar Si Said. Well worth seeking out
