We went to the Marrakchi on our lat night in Marrakech, having sampled everything from Jemaa el Fna food stalls to steak and chips in the new town.
We were lucky to get a table straight away, as larger groups had to wait, and although our table only looked out of a side window, the décor was so attractive, with tiled mosaic walls and ornate lampshades, making it cosy and romantic.

We tried a bottle of Moroccan red wine which was equally as good as any red wines you get in UK, although we had nearly finished it by the time our food came! I would try not to get stressed about service in Morocco, although sometimes slower than UK it always seems to come with a smile and the food was really good. I had a beef tanjia (jugged beef, slow cooked and succulent although sadly without the pile of veg that comes with a tagine) and my husband had the lamb tagine, which was lovely.

We weren't subjected to the belly dancing that other reviewers have mentioned so I can't comment on that.

We went here for dinner on our first night from a recommendation from our Riad. I ordered the pastilla which was classed as an entree. I have had pastilla in Morocco before and this was clearly an appetizer size. A little more expensive than the other restaurants in the square so you are clearly paying for the view. The pastilla was good but too small. My niece had a tagine which she enjoyed.

The food was good, but not great. Service was again good but not great. We were seated in the upper dining room, which is tiled and very atmospheric. Some of the tables on this floor offered great views over the square. There was live music for most of the night which really added to the atmosphere. Later in the night two girls performed a belly dancing routine, the belly dancing was minimal and they mainly circuited the room for tips. Men were encouraged to put money into their bras and underwear. This didn't seem fitting with our general experience of the traditions of Morocco. This restaurant is definitely designed to attract tourists and it didn't feel very authentic.

The view is spectacular and décor lovely. We had the lamb for 2 and it was delicious. The food was long in coming although they did warn us ahead of time that it would take a while and we were not in a hurry. There was live music and it could be a great place to enjoy a leisurely evening with friends or a romantic night out. The problem was we were packed in like sardines and cramped on every side making it difficult to enjoy the atmosphere.

This restaurant boasts an ideal location on the square in the heart of Marrakech with great views over the square which adds to the dining experience. Although I feel the tables are maybe a little tight together this had no real impact. The food was lovely, the pigeon pastilla was a great starter, the mixture of sweet and savoury went so well. I had a lamb tagine which was also delicious. Traditional Moroccon music is played throughout your meal followed by belly dancers which is a nice touch. Some may view this restaurant as quite 'touristy' but as a tourist that's what I want!
