Maison MK was one of our hotel options when we looked at Marrakech but as we ended up choosing another hotel, we thought we'd try it for dinner and were not disappointed.
We had pre-dinner drinks on the roof terrace then were taken downstairs to the restaurant.
The menu was a 5 course modern European fusion with a choice of 3 mains and the food was well presented and absolutely delicious. The service, start to finish, was top notch.
We had enjoyed the spices and tender meat tagine dishes served elsewhere but they became a bit samey and bland so this really woke us up.
The chef came and introduced himself at the end of the meal and was really interested to hear any feedback.
The only negative as far as we were concerned was as some couples had chosen to sit by the indoor pool, the restaurant area itself lacked a bit of atmosphere / vibe but we'd definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone.

Great to have drinks and snacks on the roof terrace, wonderful atmosphere and views. The service was charming, professional, welcoming, informative and friendly. The food was innovative, modern and beautifully executed. It was a very quiet night and we were the only diners. This might have made the evening a bit uncomfortable, but this was not the case. At some point of the dinner one of the owners came over for a chat. She had just flown over for her regular visit and it was great to hear from hear how they rescued a near ruin and turned it into a stylish hotel and restaurant. The chef also came out to greet us. We would definitely recommend this for a meal when in Marrakech. This is really a first-class establishment, with food to match and a highly motivated and well trained staff. Well worth a visit and the views at the top of the riad at night are beautiful and breathtaking.

We arrived a little early - dinner starts at 8pm - and therefore had ample time to enjoy some roof top drinks and canapes with some great views. The dinner itself is served within the riad - which is beautiful. The service was seamless and the food was incredible and perfectly presented. We would definitely dine here again.

One delicious vegeterian course followed another. Each delicious and beautifully presented.
Because everyone is served at the same time, it did feel a little drawn out but if you have plenty of time, gastro mk is an absolute must!

What is so fantastic about this restaurant is that it brings contemporary European fine dining at it's very best and marries it wonderfully with Morocco culinary traditions and atmosphere, so unlike many top restaurants that ape the the exclusive style of hip places in London or New York, you still feel like you are North Africa. The unique take on the traditional Moroccan pastilla was a perfect example of this nuanced approach. Just sublime.

The entire evening from start to finish was just wonderful and if you are in Marrakech and want a fine, fine meal then you must come here, no doubt at the end of your trip as a wonderful, classy, treat.

Oh and do try to sit in the courtyard on the comfy banquettes next to the pool and fire, they really are the best seats in the house.
