“An oasis of calm and elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We struggled to find Maison MK but a call to the Riad resulted in someone quickly coming to the square to greet us - this was a brilliant and very welcome service. Make sure you get there with enough time before your actual reservation at 8pm to enjoy a drink on the roof terrace. We enjoyed cocktails and canapes and the sun setting - blissful. The service from start to finish was so kind, refined and attentive.

The setting is lovely - the lighting and sound of the running water into the pool - very relaxing. The food was varied and excellent, especially the delicious bread which they were very generous with.The cucumber sorbet with some spice was a highlight. The wine was also delicious. All great value, and would certainly recommend.

“Didn't get a meal, but...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I was so excited to actually find this hidden gem in the Medina after reading all the great reviews, but unfortnately, they were fully booked as they have a set amount of tables, and it was Saturday night. We did however have a drink on their gorgeous rooftop terrace where we were allowed to linger well past sundown and when we went to reception, the friendly staff suggested a very particular restaurant in another quarter of the Medina. Altough we were wanting to go by foot, the waiter insisted that we would not be disappointed, and that we could even take their personal taxi. After a quick phone call, the taxi driver arrived to lead us through the Medina to his car, and over to the restaurant where they had already booked a table for us. It was really lovely. Also, I should note that I had forgotten a very special scarf on MK's roof and the next day it was waiting tidily folded at reception, something that would never have happened in a normal restaurant on the street. We will return for dinner the next visit!

“Rather splendid food too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

As guests in Maison MK we booked dinner having heard of all the great reviews - and we were not disappointed. Canapes on the roof terrace were delicious and we had a chance to meet other diners and enjoy a glass of cold local wine. We were taken down to the restaurant and seated near the pool (try and book one of these tables when booking). The taster menu was fantastic with great imaginative flavours and taste experiences. Service was efficient and friendly. We loved all the courses and would find it hard to choose a favourite. All in all a great meal with great service. Congratulations to Omar and his team for a fantastic taste experience!

“Special evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We booked online after reading the TA reviews and were very glad we did. It is a little tricky to find (no shortage of young men hovering around the streets nearby who will show you the way and demand payment, so try not to look lost!). The cocktails and canapes on the rooftop were fantastic, with great views of a beautiful sunset. It almost seemed a shame to go inside for the meal itself. The food was very well presented and tasty. The only criticism is that some courses could have been slightly hotter but this is a minor complaint. We had a lovely evening with great service.
