The service is made by only by women, and you could see them cooking!!
It is great for couple, family and business too.
I will recommended for the freshness and quality of food.

“Reserve your table right now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food is absolutely superb and everyone knows it, was absolutely packed and we had to reserve like 3 days in advance. We reserved our table by just knocking on the door in the day, because we didn't have a phone that worked abroad, they just opened it and booked us in. I had a lamb and aubergine tagine and the lamb was probably the best I'd ever had. The women are so nice and at the beginning or the end I can't remember they come and wash you hands with a hot cloth and your hands feel tingly. It just felt very authentic, like you were in these women's front room having a home cooked meal. Do not leave marrakech without going.

“Great restaurant, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Al Fassia had been recommended so we reserved a table - glad we did because it was packed. Great ambience, good service. This is Marrakech, so please dont assume everyone should speak to you in English - a little French does go a long way though if like us you dont speak Arabic! The food here was easily the best quality we had during our 5 days in the city....never thought I would eat pigeon pie but you have to try it. Even the Morrocan wine was surprisingly good. Had more of a european feel than all other restaurants we tried, but still had a unique character - maybe its because all the staff are women?

“What is all the fuss about?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

We went to al fassia for a special last night treat after a few friends had recommended it. It is totally underwhelming. To be clear, the food is good, well prepared and tasty but the decor was concrete and the service, almost like a fast food joint. No character, no interaction and if you have ever been to Manchester, there are better evenings to be had in Rusholme. Bothered? Not.

“Just ok..average and nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Was told this is a good place to eat, had to book as this place is busy.
The concept of women running it working here is good. The service was ok, we waited for ages to be given a menu and for someone to take our order.
There was a bit of a language barrier as the waitress could not speak much english which was suprising as this place is packed full of tourists.
The food was very average! The starters of salads was nice but very dissapointed with the main. Had a lamb tagine and it should be named bone tagine as thats what it was
Shame about slow service and not so great tagine. Much better food elsewhere
