The restaurant was very quiet when we visited, we were on the first floor along with a few other couples. The menu was on a big blackboard, with Moroccan food available along with Italian and some French. We chose Moroccan, the tagines were delicious. The only slight niggle was the service was a little slow - not sure if that was because the restaurant was so quiet so there may not have been as many staff as usual. It didn't spoil the evening by any means, as we weren't in a hurry but it would have been nice if they could have just checked on us a little more. If you're looking for a friendly place in the Medina, I would recommend giving it a try.

My friend & I were staying locally in a Riad and a young man showed us to this restaurant on our 2nd evening. He expected a small tip, but it was worth it. As it's away from the square and a little off the beaten track, it's more reasonably priced and everyone goes out of their way to make your experience special. Didier, the owner, is a dream! Excellent service, the chef came out to say hello, lovely food, nice choice of wines & local beers, wonderful decor and good ambience. The only reason I've given it 4 stars, is that it was a little quiet, only one other couple in the place. A few more people would give this restaurant the perfect buzz & a 5! We were in Marrakesh in December and the restaurant has only been open 6mths, so we know it's only a matter of time before it takes off. We went back twice during our 4 night stay. Yes, you should eat with the locals in the square one evening, but this establishment is worth a small detour. We'll be recommending it to all our friends & family visiting Marrakesh. Go....... you won't be disappointed!

A very nice restaurant, trendy interior but you feel right at home.
The food was really good, in my top 10 of best meals ever.
Went back for a second time.
Very friendly service, and this restaurant also serves wine.

We stayed in a riad close to this restaurant & were so happy with the location (easy to find), the staff (very hospitable), the cosy place (many little rooms to choose your seating from with great ambience), the choice of food & the speediness of how quickly the food came, as well as the very reasonable prices! The quality of our meals were excellent. We had the lemon/olive chicken tagine & the lamb with almonds/prunes (so yummy!). We shared a chocolate mousse for dessert & can highly recommend this place to eat!!
