“Average review persuaded us to visit........!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Sometimes you learn more about a place from an "average" review than from high praise. In our case I was impressed with the owners response to a customer who was not fully satisfied with their experience and it demonstrated a passion and pride in their restaurant. This was very similar in culture to the owners of QC's Seafood restaurant in SW Ireland and if ever two places could be twinned it is these - so different and so alike in many ways

And our experience - wonderful and I fully endorse many of the comments within the high ratings. Sadly "English" weather ruled out the roof top cocktails though everything from first walking through the door oozed class and attention to detail. We arrived early to ensure we could find the place and for amyone who does that, there are some great shops to visit within short walk with a much nicer ambience than the hassle closer to the main square

My only comment was in relation to the food. Whilst excellent, I would like the option to add extra seasoning if I so wish. I sometimes think it is a form of "gastronomic arrogance" when the restaurant always knows best when it comes to seasoning and that those who ask for salt may not be worthy of appreciating such food. I would also like to see hot plates for the main course so one could enjoy the food without worrying about it getting cold on the plate - I guess not normally a problem in Marrakech .....!

We very much look forward to returning one day and sampling the rooms which also looked superb

“Amazing night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I have only complements to give this restaurant. Exciting and good food, fantastic service, beautiful place. Have never tried such a unique and small restaurant. Really the best experience on my vacation to Marrakech. Will definitely go back another time.

“By far the best in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Based on reviews we opted to visit here on a Saturday night. The roof terrace served cocktails and offered great views of the Medina. The food itself was delicious and although not cheap, was worth every penny. Make sure if visiting Marrakech you include Gastro MK in your Itinerary.

“Dinner for 2 in november”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner at Gastro MK to finish our trip to Marrakech. The weather was not good enough to be on the roof but we were very comfortable beside the pool and could have chosen to be in the dining room also. The tasting menu was sophisticated and delicious, we had seen Omar the chef at work previously in our cookery lesson and were very impressed. The staff were attentive and polite and we had as good a dinner as you could expect in any top european restaurant.

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Beautiful atmosphere both inside and on the terrace. Dinner begins with drinks on the terrace. They make an awesome mojito. You then move inside for a 5 course tasting menu with a choice of main. I enjoyed the dishes very much and thought it was good value when compared to Europe or the West. The service was excellent at all times. After dinner you are invited to have drinks and a cigar or shisha in the smoking room with a camel.

It is is difficult to find on foot.
