“Good food, not so service”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Food was great, we were first there so was a little disappointed that starter took just under an hour. The main came out quite quickly after we finished starter.

When we finish eating the empty plates were there for sometime even tho waiter top up our drinks.

We left and disappointed no staff had said bye even with eye contact made with several of the staff.

But please don't think this is a negative responds, as the decor and food was really good. The restaurant was clean and they played wonderful music.

Plus 2 starters, 2 meze, 1 cocktail and 1 fruit juice came to 755 dh which is around £60 in total which is £30 per head.

“Nothing less than AMAZING”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We were advised of this hidden gem by our hotel and were so pleased, it is a little piece of heaven not far outside the medina in the new town. The service was on top point and the food was to die for. We also smoked shisha to round off our evening and the atmosphere was so relaxing we didn't want to leave. I would 100% reccomend this restaurent to anyone visiting Marrakech and will certainly return there if I find myself back in the area. Some reviews say that the prices were a little high however we paid the equivalent of £45 each for 2 glasses of wine, 2 coctails, shisha and a beautiful 2 course dinner, you certainly couldn't replicate that here in London!

“A Very Nice Evening”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

We was recommended this restaurant by a friend as a really nice place to go for food and entertainment in Marrakech. We asked our hotel concierge who were very reluctant against us going saying the place wasn't good at all but we decided to take the chance and go. The restaurant is hard to find and located on a side street so a cab will be your best form of travel to get there. The restaurant itself is very well presented, lovely decor with candles on every table and a live person playing a string musical instrument which sets the atmosphere perfectly. We were seated quickly and given a menu. As Lebanese food lovers there wasn't anything unusual on the menu for starters. You could opt to order your own mezze's or six at a set price but the chef will choose for you. We opted to order our own and went for houmous, Fattoush and Jawaneh chicken wings. The portions are relatively small so order depending on how hungry you are. Bread was provided free, which was nice and soft. The houmous and fattoush were fairly standard but the chicken wings were very tasty. For the mains we decided to go for the mixed grilled as recommended by our waitress and a chicken Tajine. Once again the presentation was very nice of the food. Never having tried a Tajine we were quite impressed with the taste and tenderness of the meat! The mixed grill was also nice with very unique tastes with a selection of three meats. The mains was served with rice or couscous. There was a belly dancing show which unfortunately we couldn't stay for and Shisha and drinks were available upstairs if required. Overall was a very pleasant evening. Can't really justify the negative reviews posted everything lived up from atmosphere to food. Definitely worth a try if out there.

“Morrocan high class ”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a very nice and a upscale joint, you will treated like high social class.

And this is also their intent.

The service is most excellent.

The food is made and presented in most exclusive way.


Taste was amazing, drinks are a bit pricey here though.

Their iriah coffe was the smallest i have ever seen.

Highly recommended

“A very nice place to dine”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

This was a very nice restaurant in which to enjoy a very nice meal with very good service. It had been recommended by our riad. It is a Lebanese restaurant in a very nice part of Marrakech. They have a very nice bar upstairs. It is a tad fancy. The restaurant and bar are decorated very nice.

We had told our driver that we were not interested in a large meal. He suggested one of the samplers on the menu. You can get a 6 plate or 10 plate or 16 plate or 20 plate sampler. For four us we chose the 16 plate sampler. Glad we did not go with the 20 plates, because what we had was more than enough. For two of us, our share of the ticket was $61 USD which is a little high, but not for the ambiance and quality of food and service.

There were supposed to be belly dancers the night we were there, but it turned out to be some kind of holiday so they were not performing. Sorry we missed it as that would have been a very nice touch to a nice meal.

We would certainly recommend this restaurant
