“Lovely meal - amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Fantastic meal and service. Started with canapé and drinks on the candle-lit rooftop terrace, under the stars and overlooking the labyrinthine alleyways of Marrakech old town. Then we were taken down to the restaurant for dinner - we chose a table by the hotel's dip-pool (together with the resident giant rubber duck in the pool) and lovely fireplace. The decoration of the hotel is definitely eclectic and somewhat surreal (there is a giant camel head with cigarette in its mouth in the smoking room), but we loved it.

The food was delicious - we had the five course taster menu (big fan of taster menus) - and the service relaxed, but attentive. In fact, the whole meal and ambience was very relaxing and enjoyable.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

This was a lovely tranquil oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of marrakech. The canapes were served on the roof in a beautiful setting before we sat down to an amazing 5 course meal. The service was just right and the food was incredible. Would definately recommend.

“Excellent food, service and location - divine is the descriptor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We managed to make a late reservation with their staff in London after finding this restaurant on TripAdvisor. All of our contact with the staff was fantastic and very professional.

The location of this restaurant is tucked away in a small alleyway off of the Jemma el Fnaa. Once inside you are transported to an area of luxury. The outdoor seating area is comfortable and magical with a view over the Medina.

The service was excellent from all of the staff that we encountered during the evening. With only seating for a limited number of people, you really do feel as if you are special.

The food was excellently displayed and tasted as good as it looked. The chef was able to cater for a vegetarian without problems. The five course menu with canapes kept getting better and better with each course. It was a very nice touch to have the chef come out and talk to the diners at the end of the meal. He was genuinely interested in our comments.

A great dining experience in any city, not just in Marrakech. A fantastic meal, atmosphere and location...a must visit if you enjoy good dining.

“Excellence on every level.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Visited Marrakesh in October and had seen good reviews for this place, we were not disappointed.
From the moment you eventually walk through the door (easy to find once you know where it is!), you appreciate the owner and staff alike are proud of what they have created.
It is this pride and attention to detail which defines an excellent restaurant from the rest.
It was said about La Gavroche "It is not just food, it is theatre!", the same applies to MK.
Sitting on the roof terrace with an ice cold drink as the sun goes down, you could be a million miles away from the hustle of the town, only the calls to prayer remind you that you are in fact in the middle of it all.
The food couldn't be faulted and the service was always attentive.
As it was our wedding anniversary, we were sat in the corner booth which was very pleasent (even if one of the pictures on the wall was reminiscient of a horror movie poster!)
All in all a very enjoyable experience,

“Excellent food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I was a bit hesitant to experience a "tasting menu" in Marrakesh, but wasn't disappointed. Each of the 5 courses were a sublime mix of traditional Moroccan with western cooking techniques and presentation. The staff were very friendly, great for a romantic dinner for two.
