The most important detail: if you are not staying at the riad, make sure to call ahead so a staffer will meet you in the main square. Dar najat is on a residential road which is barely lit; finding this place was a massive undertaking.

But we were glad we came. Service is very liesurely, and the friendly staff wants you to enjoy a complete evening. Great apps, excellent tanjine, and a refreshing fruit cocktail for dessert. Fixed menu.

Very good food at an authentic riad. If we return, I would strongly favor returning to far najat.

The evening started well - led upstairs to our table by Amin (nice friendly chap), he spent a few minutes chatting to us, introduced us to the chef, and then left us to it. So far so good.

It was a set menu, so no options, and luckily I had emailed ahead telling them that my wife is a vegetarian.

Starters were nice - mixed salad. And mains were also decent - my chicken tagine was massive!

Once we'd finished our mains we were given mint tea, but then left alone for well in excess of half an hour before the chef/waiter appeared again. (Felt somewhat odd as we were the only people dining that night!).
When we did finally get some attention (which was only after I whistled in the direction of the kitchen - seriously), all we wanted was the bill and to get home to bed. Lucky really as we weren't even offered the option of having any dessert.

Shame really as we'd gone expecting much better. Maybe we caught them on an off night, but even so, good service isn't difficult when you only have one couple to attend to. Honestly felt like we'd been forgotten about.

Hi and thanks for your review..at least the gastronomy 's part which seems to suit you well..and sorry if due to real hot temperature..with more than 48 Celsius since several days..the team or service has not been what it should or.. "full power " on this day which was you are right again ..supposed to be a day off but anyway should have been better and your dessert.. faster too!
Sincerely yours ,Oliver.

I have eaten many times in Dar Najat's Kitchen and I am never disappointed. The traditional Moroccan food is freshly cooked and their choice of menu is always superb with lots of different salads to start.... a fish stew or lamb tagine and all served by friendly staff who are attentive when required. The atmosphere on the terrace overlooking the beautiful views of Marrakech at night is so good...you can spend the whole evening enjoying the amazing food and listening to some great music too....you must try it!

Be prepared to have a nice conversation with the owner, he has a talent speaking about life, it's like he has lived 7 lives and worked for 60 years... His efforts for you to enjoy your night are not common and make the whole experience of spending some hours at his Riad great.
