This restaurant deserves its positive reviews! It offers a pleasant eating environment with friendly,eager to please staff. The food was tasty and reasonably priced with a relatively good selection. Definitely worth a visit.

The steak was highly reviewed on TA so I ordered it. It was a good size portion but was only warm when it came out. Based on other reviews I expected amazing but it was only ok. Service was very good, other than not asking me how my food was. Atmosphere was nice. Definitely don't think this restaurent belongs in the top 10.

Dear Sir
Sorry that your New York steak did not pleased. You ordered it “medium”, so warm inside. It was served immediately after preparation,( you were the only customer at 4.00 pm!). As you enjoy the wifi connection, you delayed to start eating ...

Kind regards

We'd been to Amaia back in 2012 and had to rely on TripAdvisor to look it up again in 2014 - this place should be number one in Marrakech, it's that good.
In fact, it's so good we went twice. First and foremost, the food is superb - whatever you have. Succulent steaks, great salads, brilliant burgers and tasty tagines. Great starters and drinks too.
Then there's the service - really friendly, attentive and nothing is too much trouble.
The interior is cool (literally) and comfortable, which is an additional bonus, and there's even a contemporary soundtrack in the background.
A restaurant like Amaia would do well in London - in Marrakech it's a real find. Try it.

Amaya was reccomended to us and sounded like it was worth a try. We traveled extensively in Morocco and by the time we got to Marrakech we wanted different kinds of cuisine. (Had a few too many tajines). Amaya was a nice change of pace.

The restaurant is tiny but comfortable. The menu has a nice varried selection of dishes. We had a really nice basil and tomato salad and a good steak. I ordered their green curry and asked if they could make it extra (super) spicy. In the end it barely registered on the heat meter.

The owners were welcoming and service was good. I would have liked to go back and try out their breakfast menu which sounded really good.

Visited this restaurant on 4th August 2014 for birthday dinner. Had read some of the reviews and thought i would give it a try and it was worth it. Very stylish restaurant with modern design. Serivice was great and the steak i had was one of the bests i ever had. The chef was accommodating to my tastes as i love flavour and asked for extra garlic and rosemary! Also very much value for money, two meals large bottle of water came to 270dh!!!
