Food wasn't special. Better food in the Medina - Soup to start was tasty - Large half side of lamb OK, but it was fatty and too dark to see what you were getting - cuscous dish with chicken was bland and tasteless. Desert was apples or oranges and 1 small biscuit. The entertainers who came into tent looked bored, walked around shouting/singing/chanting? and went out. Felt would have been better with some introduction. The outside show was very dark unless at lit end. It was just horsemen riding up and down and firing shots and people walking around all seemed very commercialised.

A good Moroccan style meal cooked in a turine. But the horse show after was well worth seeing. We travelled to and from the show by horse drawn carriage. There are literally hundreds of these in Marrakech.

Well worth experiencing. This was very busy with lots going on. Try to stay in well lit areas and take lots of photos as it's unlikely you will ever see anything like it elsewhere.

This is a place designed specifically for tourists. The highlight was watching the horse show. What these men can do on horses is quite remarkable.
The food was just so-so. I find many of these experiences disheartening as it almost seems like tourists are exploiting the natives of the country.

The food was ordinary. The inside entertainment was some dancing and music which was presented by a group of locals that had limited talent. The outside show was so commericialized we left the show.
