“A great bistro with home cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Very good small restaurant in Marrakech, with a limited but freshly cooked menu, made of daily prepared meals. I had the beef stew cooked in wine, one of the best dishes i had in a long time. Good wine list, great desserts.

“French food in Marrakech”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We wanted a change from Moroccan food after a few days and booked this bistro for lunch.
Its a little out of the old city on the Route de Targa but the cab found it easily enough.
Its small and functional rather than chic but welcoming. The Gravelax starter was excellent. The Steak main was poor (Moroccan cattle probably get a hard life) but properly cooked with a lovely béarnaise sauce. The Crème Brule was very rich.
910 mad for two with 2 glasses of wine and coffee.

“The best food in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

After six days in Marrakech I was craving some non Moroccan food. We found "Le Canaille" through Tripadvisor and headed up. The food was amazing and our hosts could not have done more to make us feel welcome and enjoy our meal.
This was by far the best place which we found to eat in Marrakech
