The interior is so beautiful that we were all hoping the food didn't disappoint, and with some minor quibbles, it didn't. First, I will just say that this is the most beautiful restaurant I have ever dined in, and that is a feat, given how widely I have travelled. The maître d' seated us although they were full, saying he couldn't turn us away. They brought complimentary amuse bouche, which were fine, but not super tasty. We ordered a cold starter sampler, which we four shared. The dishes were typical Moroccan salad type appetisers. Good, but not superb. Our main courses though were truly delicious. Lamb tagine, flank steak, osso buco and monkfish were all delicious. The service was excellent, until they became extremely busy at one point and were really working very hard to keep up with everything. Our desserts took a little too long. At that point, the manager (?) came out to help and things were back on track. The desserts were mostly all good, except the peach Melba which really belongs in the 1960's. The wine was Moroccan and quite tasty. So, overall, while not perfect, I think the amazing decor, the true effort to provide excellent service, and the generally good food means that this restaurant deserves its rating as the best place in Ouarzazate. I should also mention that a comparable meal in the U.S or anywhere in Europe would have easily cost double or triple what we paid. Very good value, and a must for anyone who loves great food.
