We had lunch with a group of friends here and the service and food were excellent. As with most meals in Morocco though, there was far more food than we could eat and one begins to feel a bit guilty about that, but it does seem to be cultural. One of the most interesting features was the serving of tea where the waiter poured it from about 4 feet above the small tea cups and barely spilled a drop.

We came to this restaurant on recommendation of our Riad – we normally like to eat at our Riad the first night we arrive, but our Riad’s restaurant was closed on Sunday. It was also one we had identified from our guidebook which described it as “superlative Morocco food”, so it was one we that we wanted to try out.
Restaurant Dinarjat is on a quiet alleyway towards the north end of the Medina, the alleyway is labeled so you can navigate yourself there with the help of a map and sense of direction.
The main courtyard of the restaurant is beautiful and there was a good atmosphere as most of the tables were full (as there was a tour group) and there was live music playing. However, we were seated at the side of the restaurant rather than in the central courtyard, which while cosy, is a little out of the way. The main courses were not what we were expecting, but were very nice, more fancy than traditional Moroccan. However, as we were seated at the side of the restaurant the service was poor. The service staff did not come to check on us during the meal and the when the main tour group disappeared the staff essentially disappeared from sight. I had to go and look for the staff to request the bill. Similar to another reviewers experience, there is a 10% tax added to the top – I challenged this, but was brought the menu which does clearly state at the bottom in small print that a 10% tax would be added to the cost.
So although the food was good the overall experience was not as the service was poor. A disappointment.

The setting is perfect,dining in an open court yard,the 2 musicians are really pleasant. The food was OK , not outstanding , the service a bit uninterested to really please ,something we found only there during our stay in Morocco.

Hotel restaurant was closed and the Manager booked us here.
The food was very good, and well priced. The entertainment was excellent which gives it a great atmosphere. ( One last thing check out the funky toilet)

Dinarjat is a traditional restaurant on a quite alleyway in the Rabat medina. The restaurant lacks signage so you must find your way there by asking and you may feel a bit secretive knocking on the big wooden door. But once inside the warmth of the traditionally-appointed Moroccan restaurant surrounds you and the smells emanating from the kitchen will make your mouth water.

I'd been to Dinarjat 2 or 3 times before for dinner (they are only open for dinner and you really must make reservations). The food was excellent every time. On this occasion I took a group of 21 people to Dinarjat for dinner. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. A fixed price menu which I had arranged beforehand offered traditional Moroccan salads to start. The main course was made up of 3 different tajines: chicken, lamb, and vegetarian - all fantastic. Dessert and drinks were all terrific.

One of my favorite things about Dinarjat is the oud player and he was there along with his partner who drums and sings. Adds a lot to the atmosphere. The staff is attentive and allows the evening to unfold is a relaxed, unhurried fashion. It was another great evening.

Note that prices are on the high side. I think it's worth it, but others may not.
