“Enjoyable evening and nice surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We ate here in July 2013 during the Ramadam period. The staff were willing to seat us in the restaurant but told us that they would not be able to serve us for about half an hour because of the staff and Ramadam. The restaurant is very nice and impressive lighting and surroundings. It was regrettable that where we were sat there was an intermittent smell of drains - no idea where it came from.
The staff were efficient though not overly friendly, and it quickly filled up so appeared popular (always a good sign). There was entertainment with a belly dancer and a dancer with a tray of lighted candles on her head. Customers were 'invited' to participate (ie be dragged up) and they were more than happy for photos to be taken. I was fully expecting a collection afterwards but it didn't happen and was all part of the service.
The meal was good and none of us had any complaints. The drinks - especially the water - were ridiculously expensive and this is obviously where they make money. Overall I thought the evening was expensive (for morroccan standards of course), but the bill when I got home was about £80 for four people having 1 course and 2 drinks as well as half a bottle of wine and two bottles of water, as well as the entertainment of course

“Great food, little expensive but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The guy at our hotel recommended this restaurant. Really great introduction to Marrakesh for or first night here. The atmosphere is great, the decor amazing. The food was good, we had shoulder of lamb for two and it was huge meal. Light entertainment with dancers was also a plus. Worth a visit unless you are travelling on a right budget.

“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I ate here with a few friends on a very hot afternoon and it was lovely. Amazing food, great service and a beautiful view overlooking a very busy road across from the Saadian tombs. I would recommend. One quirky thing that happened. The electricity went out and I had to go to the bathroom with a candle. It all worked out and made for a great story! I have lots more Moroccan stories on my blog. lildnyc.blogspot.com
