“Wow....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We booked a table for 8pm on a Friday through our hotel having read the great reviews about Azar. This is an upmarket restaurant which you can see and feel as you approach it. Once inside it is quite dark but has a romantic atmosphere with the candles. The decor is amazing. There is a nice selection of cocktails. The food is amazing...yummy and great presentation. The falafel and haloumi rikakat are worth trying. We asked for our desserts to be served outside with shisha. The service was great and the staff were extremely professional. Highly recommend this place!

“Zut alors!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth adding to your to-do list for Marrakech. Out of this world decor plus the best food we had in the city. combo deals of 9 mezze, 2 mains and desserts for 600dh for two. The chicken livers were very tasty as were the Rikalat pastries filled with halloumi. Chicken tagine with preserved lemons also highly recommended. Belly dancers come on at 10pm so i suggest reserving a table for 8.30-9.00. Good wine selection at reasonable prices.

“Ehhh. Not bad... Don't know what the raves are about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Nice food but London prices.
Think the place is TA over-rated for people looking for a 'nice'/'romantic' experience.
The show (~10:15pm) is fun and absorbs some of the cost of the food/drink but still very expensive for what is a cheap town.
Go in the knowledge that you're getting a pricey, modern, chic Morrocan experience and am sure there there are other more local/genuine places just as good at half the price.

“Simply Sublime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We eat from here (usually by delivery) at least once a week and it is quite simply extraordinary. It is as good if not better than the best Lebanese restaurants in London or Paris and for subtlety of flavour and richness of taste - it beats pretty much everything else in Marrakech hands down. Love it

“Gem in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This place is great! I tried the chicken liver (i know - doesnt sound appetizing), but it was phenomenal.
The food was well seasoned and well presented
The staff was super friendly, and the ambiance is wonderful.
I would highly recommend!
