An excellent evening's dining, and great value. The food was first rate - chose from menu du jour, fixed price 75 dirhams (around 7 euros). Really good Moroccan soup - Harira, tasty, beans and noodles and just spicy enough - was preceded by a plate of olives and Harissa, fiery pepper condiment, with good Berber bread. Main course was couscous with chicken and vegetables - beautifully cooked, really good sauce. And second helpings arrived, with even thirds on offer - declined! Dessert was a perfect little yoghurt-laced fruit salad, followed by complimentary delicate little patisserie. All washed down by very, very good tea - recommend the vervaine tea as a delicious change from regular mint tea.
The ambience here is lovely - colourful, nicely decorated, relaxed. Tiniwaren on the stereo, just right for time and place. Mid-evening, a very jolly strolling musician passed by to perform an impromptu Berber blues about Ouarzazate - a kind of desert Chuck Berry - very entertaining, not at all intrusive and didn't outstay his welcome.
Service is first rate - a warm welcome, quickly and efficiently seated and made comfortable. Menu explained in full if needed, then once ordered, food arrives as and when you'd like it, service just attentive enough to know you're being looked after, and discreet enough for you to feel at home. Strongly recommended.

I was in Sable d'Or in july 2011 and I was surprised by the quality of their food and service. The staff is very friendly, polite and discret, the food is delicious and in very good price. Absolutely the best customer service and management that I met in Morocco. The place is very easy to find - just in the center of the city, in the main square. Later in Marrakesh I was missing their food and customer service, becouse I didn't find other restaurant there as good as Sable d'Or.
They have a traditional moroccan food, you can chose your dish of many kind of 1st and 2nd dishes, and the price is a fixed price for all the menu + water, coffee or tea. The price for all the menu for 1 person (1st, 2nd, dessert and something to drink) was only 75 DH.
