If you look closely, you'll see rows of clay pots cooking in little eateries in the back streets of the medina. They say the tanjia is a dish unique to Marrakech, but it's hard to find in almost any restaurant on the tourist track. The Tanjia offers one choice with beef; it's cooked for hours in the clay pot and comes out tasty enough, but probably won't be your absolute favorite Morroccan dish. So add the pigeon pie and a tagine with lamb, dates or prunes, and you'll have a nice meal at the Tanjia. Around 9 pm, the belly dancers show up in force on the upper floor for an energetic performance.

We chose this restaurant as it was near the Riad and in the Rough Guide.

It was a bad choice. The food was not good value (chicken pastilla 130dhm for starter) and the service was very slow.

All restaurants we visited in Morocco provided bread at the start, which we didn't like to eat, however here it was not offered despite a wait of an hour for main courses.

We were not the only ones waiting - there was the awkward moment where you see everyone looking around wondering where their food is.

There is belly dancing, which we felt was a bit 'touristy'. Would be better if they spent the money on another chef!

Have visited this incredible city twice this year and loved everything about it - except this place. Yes the building in beautiful but dont be seduces - the service was so slow, prices just ridiculously high. Staff all up their own rear ends - just like eating out in London really.

The location and view were great. The food was fantastic - one of the best tagines we had on the whole trip. The only downside was that it took about an hour to arrive, which for lunch is a bit too long.

Well. It's beautiful. I went for dinner alone. Wanted to watch some belly dancing before eating. But I was here early at 730 and the dance starts at 930. I looked at the menu and saw a small bottle of Special beer for 65 dhs! That's close to 8 USD. I decided to leave. Beer is not worth that much. Especially with no entertainment.
