Riad Dar Najat is an oasis of calm in the loud and chaotic city. We had slight trouble finding it though but it seems to be normal in the maze of little narrow streets of Marrakech.
The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming; the place itself is nicely decorated with atmospheric lighting and pleasant background music. The restaurant is on the terrace with jacuzzi, which we were welcome to use even though we didn't stay at the hotel and came just for drinks or dinner.
I have never been a big fan of Moroccan cuisine but I loved that meal. We got a selection of crunchy salads, green beans and okra with argan oil for starters and then ordered what I thought was the best tagine possible: soft juicy beef, with excellent sauce and plums, served with slightly sweet cinnamon rice with toasted almonds. The portions were so generous that we barely touched the fruit that came after the the main course.
The beer was overpriced but we were happy to pay as it seemed to be the only place selling alcohol during Ramadan.
After having such an amazing evening meal on the first night, the rest of the journey around Morocco was culinarily disappointing. So if you want to taste the best of Morocco, this is definitely the place to go to.
