“Vegetarian and vegans eat well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Our family of four found this place through Tripadvisor and now highly recommend it to others searching for vegetarian food. It was a little tricky to find but Mona and her husband (both own the place) made us feel very welcome. Mona does the cooking and her husband waits on the tables. Mona came to the table to discuss our food needs and we were served the mezzes (6 of them) with the thinnest, lightest, fresh pita ever. All our food was incredibly fresh, full of flavor and clean, bright tastes. If you are hungry, you need one mezze order per person. It is cash only. I am still waiting for the promised beet spread recipe from Mona!

“The quality of the food served is really bad...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Together with a friend of Marrakech we decided to give us a break from tajines et couscous ... and because of its position on TA we decided to try La Cuisine de Mona. The restaurant is in the area of ​​high school Victor Hugo, quite far from the center and the hotels and it is really tiny, a few tables and its decor a little disappointing.
The reception of Mona, is friendly, the service fairly quick and effective, but the quality of the food served is really bad. If I had been alone I would have left the table from the first course ... a disaster! Even the falafel and hummus were terrible. I do not know if there are other restaurants in Marrakech offering Lebanese cuisine, but certainly this is not the right one. Sorry Mona, but you forgot the fine cuisine of Lebanon.

“Very very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

I was there today and was very much surprised. It's a tiny little Restaurant owned by Mona from Lebanon and her Moroccan Husband. The place is very simple, but super clean ( open Kitchen ) and the food is excellent. Lebanese Mezze hot and cold, a huge platter for 2 for 220.- MAD, together with a Glass of well chilled Rose. Bon Appetit.......

“Great Lebanese food in a cafe setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Staff are so friendly here and Mona is always there with a welcoming smile. The food is excellent home-cooked fare and there's lots of it. It's not a restaurant as such, more like a cafe so don't go expecting dinner by candellight, and you won't be disappointed. We could not decide what to have so went for the house mixed "plate", which was more than enough for 2. This was my first experience of Lebanese food and it won't be my last :-)
