We were looking forward to enjoying a meal here on our last night in Marrakech,as we'd been there twice in the past two years.On arrival, we were greeted by different people including the 'new' owner as it changed hands a few months ago.It is still French owned but that is probably the only similarity.
The menu is brief and unoriginal,though fair value,and our foie gras starter was fine.However I ordered a fillet steak well done,and the old cliche about French restaurants not liking to cook that way came to pass when it was so bloody,I sent it back,only to have it returned in double quick time,so must have been put in microwave by the 'chef' - one piece turned out OK although tasteless,but the other half was still raw.Rather than send back again, I left it, and we left shortly after,lamenting the passing of a once exciting restaurant in a city full of good places to go.

My best meal in Marrakech these last two weeks. By all means, enjoy a dinner here. Great ambience, helpful service, and difficult to find enough superlatives to describe the cuisine. All at reasonable prices. Five stars.

Absolutely amazing service and food. Ambience is outstanding, very professional. This is French class with Moroccan flavour. We are experienced Canadian (with European background) travellers and have tried hundreds of places, this is one of the best. Strongly suggested.

What a shame as the interior is very nice and the food (when it does actually arrive is delicious).
This is a very expensive restaurant, but it doesn't deliver on service at all. We were treated as tourists rather than customers, the table next to us were French and although came in later than us received their food well before us, not acceptable.
The whole meal took 3 hours, which is fine if you want to purposely relax over dinner but was too long for us and reflected poor service.
