“Great views, reasonable good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Lovely location - panoramic bar and Restaurant. good service, with live music on most nights. Food was okay - but there are much better restaurants close by like Chez Mado and L'Annex which are better value and more of an experience.

“Have nothing you request!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We went here for our anniversary on a recommendation. The restaurant is on the top floor of the hotel and the view of the city is the premium you are paying for.
The waiter didn't understand us at all (we speak reasonable French that everyone else in Marrakech had understood well enough), and informed us that he had none of the cocktails we requested or any of the wine.....
The food was nice, especially the chocolate fondant, if a little overpriced. When we came to pay he informed us that their card machine was not working and we had to pay cash. When we refused (as we didn't have enough cash) a card machine miraculously appeared!
Overall, a nice place to go for a drink (if they have what you want!) and a meal (if you are willing to pay for the location) but the service is atrocious.

“Drunken rich kids ruin it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Eaten here twice, on both occasions for birthday treats. Very upmarket and professional, live pianist type venue, with stunning rooftop bar - if you can get served - & pool. The lift in itself is out of this world! However, the local rich kids (and they are very, VERY rich) behave appallingly and the staff are too cowed to do anything. They even apologised to us about it but did nothing on either occasion. A great shame, but in Morocco money talks.

“Worst service, overcharged... Disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

Service is awfully slow, and when we do get served our orders are terribly wrong... The waiter instead of bringing the wine we ordered ($25) brought a bottle with a similarly spelt name ($120) a bottle. We then get a very nasty shock on the bill after 2 bottles. Food was 5star prices for 2 star food. If you want an amazing Italian meal in morocco follow the good reviews and head to Pepe Nero that is a five star experience for a 4 star price. Diners beware of Aqua Pazza!

“Sophisticated, chic elegance overlooking central Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2010

Reminiscent of some of the hip new places to be seen in Hollywood and New York, Aqua Pazza is certainly on the list of up and coming hot spots in Marrakech. If the extraordinary view from the outdoor rooftop pool deck isn’t enough, then al fresco dining and saffron risotto is sure to make you say “Fantastic”! Wonderful, attentive service, a select dinner menu, a full bar and wine list complete with Moroccan selections and several tempting deserts make this a special place among a cool, sophisticated crowd. Manager Gabriel Lousada makes all of his visitors feel welcome as he mingles among the tables to ensure his guests are well attended. My colleague and I were very pleased with the menu selection and quality of the meal, the service and the atmosphere. If al fresco dining does not appeal to you, there is also inside dining available behind floor to ceiling glass windows so the view of the clear night sky is not obscured. I will certainly be going back!
