“Gets better and better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

This was our fourth time at Maison MK. It just gets better and better. Maroc/European fusion food. Beautifully presented and served. It's a treat to come to this restaurant. We also did a cookery course with Omar - brilliant and terrific fun. Can't recommend this venue highly enough - well done and thank you!

“A Truly Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

From the moment we stepped in the door we could tell this would be an evening to remember. We were first given a guided tour of the hotel which was an eye opener. We were staying in a riad which we were very happy with, but when we saw the facilities at Maison MK we wished we were booked in there! We had cocktails and canapes on the delightful roof terrace, followed by a truly sensational dinner with one of the finest bottles of wine. We were lucky enough to have a table by the side of the pool in the main courtyard, with it's simple clean cut Morrocan elegance. Nothing was too much trouble. I would (and already have) recommended MK Maison to anybody that is visiting Marrakech.

“Nice evening, but with room for improvement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We chose this restaurant based on it's position on Tripadvisor (being no. 1). And just to start with the conclusion: we did have a great night out.

But I doubt it's Marrakesh best restaurant. We were warmly welcomed and given a tour of the riad when we came, Beautifully restored old house! With a lot of personal touches and nice details. After a drink on the fantastic roof terrace, we were all shown to our tables at 8 o'oclock.
All having the same set menu, we'd kind of expected the service to be flawless. After all the kitchen had an 'easy' job, serving the same dishes to all tables, and at the same time!
Still, the service was rather average. And so were a couple of the dishes. At this price I have to admit I expected the quality to be a bit higher.

All in all... good food, medium service and a fabulous setting!

“Maison MK. Beautiful riad with excellent food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

From our welcome at the door through drinks on the terrace and a wonderful 5 course dinner this was an absolute treat!
After dinner relaxing and sharing experiences with other travellers rounded out a great evening.
Don't miss the cooking courses. We chose the full cooking course and came away content and happy after eating the food we prepared.
All in all, if you are a foodie don't miss it!

“Deserving of its amazing reputation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Honestly cannot praise this place highly enough. We found out about it through a newspaper review and didn't think we'd be able to get a reservation at short notice - we picked up a cancellation and I am grateful we did.

The roof terrace for drinks and canapes beforehand is really very special and the staff really put you at ease.
The food itself is absolutely amazing - beautiful combinations, expertly prepared and just the right amount. I loved every course but the cucumber sorbet followed by the fig tirimisu deserve a special mention.
The wine was reasonably priced and the service was excellent.
Nice touch for the chef to come out afterwards to meet the diners.

Thoroughly recommend and only sorry we weren't also staying in the riad which looked beautiful.
