We had a dinner in this beautifull restaurant during our holiday in Marrakesh.
If you like luxury and fashion restaurant this is the place. The location is elegant and cool and it could be compared without doubt to other luxury restaurant in the world. We had pizza as a appetizer and it was tasty and well presented. Then I had ravioli with lobster and they where lovely. May be the menu could be improved with more choice.

A lot of attention has gone to the exterior and interior details. Very tasteful decoration, spacious and obviously popular with the high-end Marrakechians. Fine music tunes in perfect line with the interior, a truly awesome female singer; we couldn't believe it was live.
And then we ordered the food, the menu promises a culinary experience one could die for after two nights of traditional moroccan sessions. Our waiter wasn't particularly bright, one starter was missing as was one main course. The dishes simply didn't follow through on the decorative and musical promise. I don't believe there has not been enough attention from the kitchen staff (there were at least 20 in there). Tasteless overall, pastas were overcooked except for the risotto. The thing this restaurant should focus on now is the freshness of products and the head chef needs to be on the ball before sending it out. The contrast between entry and exit was simply too big.

the restaurant is a missed decoration hit , wanted to be modern but the decoration team nust have gotten mixed up between modern and moroccan style . the food was a little too pricy and not so great . there are a plnty of other restaurants around , don't get fooled by the glitery decor .

PROS
the place looks amazing, fabulous, very chic and neat design, with a pool, fireplace etc
food very disappointing, though created by famous chefs "Pourcel brothers"; not very tasty, a bit boring and expensive for what it's worth
CONS
live singers that literally slaughtered great classics with their unpleasant voices, and the VOLUME OF THE MUSIC was incredibly loud. we kindly asked the staff to tone it down a bit at least 5 times and nobody cared!!!!!!!!!!!
the waiters did not know the menu, or the difference between white and black truffles.
POOR POOR SERVICE
too bad, as the place has stunning potential
