We were recommended here by our hotel and I am so glad we were! Food was great, the palais is beautiful and the prices were good too! The wine was a bit pricey but I think that's just the price of alcohol in Morocco. Highly recommend this place! Vegetarian friendly!

A wonderful atmospheric traditional restaurant to enjoy authentic morrocan cusine. Call ahead and a guide will meet you at the entrance to the Medinar and then walk you back to your Riad.

The building is beautiful and worth the visit, the food is maroccan and certainly good, but not the best we'v got. But, the prices are way to expensive and the staff is not friendly. As others said already : it's a tourist trap . It was however the only restaurant open in the surrounding of the hotel ...

Ripped off big time. Terrible food, over priced. Don't darken it's doorway! We should have known better. Brought there by guide. Stupidly believed he had our best interests at heart. We ordered 2 meals paid over 30 euros, left hungry! The owners should be ashamed, giving their beautiful city such a bad reputation.

The food was really tasteful and we had a friendly host and even had a private tour of the facility and a beautiful view from the terrace.

So many reviews saying the same, we ended up there without checking anything before or knowing anything or anywhere to eat. Late flight from London. It was the perfect scenario to get ripped off. We were brought here by one of the "guides" of our Riad and basically didn't have a choice. The food is ok, considering I had better... More

We were in group of six. We have visited this restaurant on Al-Adha under recommendation of our hotel staff. They have promised us a discount but ended up as a empty promise. We paid around 30 euros per pax. With the same amount of money you could already have a fine dining in Europe. 30 euros for a meal is... More

Our hotel set us up with this restaurant. We were looking for something specific and turns out they reserved us at the wrong restaurant! Made out ok . Food was fine but prices were wayyyy to high for what we got! They made a few things happen to make our experience more enjoyable but really wasn't what we expected! Staff... More
