Perfect - I would highly recommend this to anyone going to Marrakech. Fire roaring cozily in the corner, candlelight, tables set in the covered courtyard of an old riad, rose petals scattered across the white tablecloths... And traditional musicians playing (and dancing) while you eat. It's a set menu, which allows you to try a bit of everything of traditional... More

My colleagues and I had the prix fixe dinner at Le Tobsil, on a table strewn with rose petals. It was a sumptuous, multi-course banquet: first simple olives, then a huge assortment of Moroccan "salads", then not one, but two courses that could easily count as mains, and then, lest you leave hungry, not one, but two desserts. All this,... More

I think once is enough. Food not as good as I had expected after reading the reviews. It was a set menu without the menu. I don't know if the menu changes each night. The food wasn't very exotic.5 courses. Service could come with a little bit of a smile. If you go in a group the noise wouldn't seem... More

Getting to the restaurant is itself an adventure - hidden away down an alley or four, you feel the atmosphere before you knock on the beautiful door. Once inside, the adventure continues. Candlelight shows you enough but no more. Fascinating decor, teasing smells and the most welcoming table. Moroccan music accompanies you to your seats, the staff are very attentive,... More

Our meal at Le Tobsil was excellent. We had a set traditional Moroccan meal which was 5 courses and was very filling cost was approx £50 per person and included wine. Service and the local "band" were great! The Riad was down some alleys but a doorman guides you to a door and what a pleasant surprise behind it

It's not so easy to find this restaurant because it's in a private Riad and there is no sign outside. Best way is to take a taxi. The driver will drop you at the doorman of the restaurant who guides you through the narrow alleys to the entrance door. It's a walk of only five minutes. The restaurent offers only... More

This place was amazing. Down a little backstreet hidden behind a massive decorative door. It's beautiful and opulent with candlelit tables, thick red carpets, rugs and curtains. The food and service were amazing, really indulgent and I think a real taste of morocco from years gone by. Just go for the set menu and let them take care of everything.... More

We had a lovely experience in Le Tobsil. The traditional Moroccan food was one of the best we had, and the overall experience was just wonderful. Lovely place with great atmosphere and local musicians. We had the set menu for two which was pretty pricey in our opinion, but there was more than enough food and the service was great!
