“Totally agree with worldwidelunas ...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Yes, I also agree: the staff was nice and we too heard the microwave. My husband ordered a lamb tajine but he was served.... beef. The owner said that my husband was mistaking, that this was lamb but it was so not. I mean the taste is very different! Anyway, they also served us a sad harira soup, which didn't taste better than a processed vegetable soup. Yep, if this was your highest culinary pleasure in Marrakech, do give a try to other places. It will certainly beat this one.

“What a let down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Well after 3 days of delicious food, we decided to try this restaurant for two reasons: trip advisor said it was the #15 restaurant in Marrakesh (city guide) and it was about a five minute walk from our Riad. Unfortunately it wasn’t anything it promised to be. We will start with the good because there isn’t much. The staff was very friendly. Now lets talk about the food. It was average at best. Everything seemed to be pan-fried and we heard a microwave going at one point. The vegetables were cold and the rice wasn’t worth eating. The steak was literally inedible. When the waiter asked why my husband was not eating it my husband said it was tough and didn’t taste good and the waiter actually said that it was really something for children to gnaw on. One of the best things about Moroccan cuisine is the flame-broiled aspect of much of the preparation and to be honest this food is missing the soul that so many other restaurants had. For the people saying this was the best meal they had, I feel bad for them as there is so much great food in the city and this most certainly isn’t it.

Great family run restaurant in the north section of the Souk. Best value for money in the Medina outside of the square. Very friendly staff

“Excellent typical family restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We loved this restaurant, it was a great taste of real Moroccan food and family run. The harira was the best we had in Morocco and they did a tasty lamb tagine with beautiful meat.
