Lovely venue, good food but disappointed to be given plastic straws given the adverse environmental impacts of plastic straws, which are thrown out after one use, too small to recycle and end up polluting our waterways and the ocean. I recommend they eliminate plastic straws...More

I absolutely suggest this restaurant. To reach the place you need to walk the narrow streets of the Medina. Once you are inside, the restaurant is just marvellous. I ordered a vegetable soup and beef Maroccan style. Perfect combination of taste and spice. To finish...More

The food was amazing. I had a very delicious vegetables dish as a starter. Also the rest was fantastic. The place is in a typical moroccon historical building full of great charme. Workers and manager are professional, elegant and kind. It couldn’t be better!!!More

Description
Situated in the very heart of the souks, this building is a hidden secret, only found by the discerning and curious visitor, where history is recorded in the delicate tracery of the stucco and skilfully carved wood. In the year 2000 , Marrakech Riads, a leading player in the restoration of the riads of Marrakech, brought Dar Cherifa back to life, and simultaneously unveiled a hidden treasure of the medina, the refined decor of this building recalling that of the Medersa Ben Youssef, jewel of the Saadian era (16th century) and one of the finest monuments of Marrakech. Renovated with the greatest care and attention to detail, with the participation of renowned craftsmen so as to maintain its authenticity and splendour, Dar Cherifa welcomes all visitors eager to meet new and interesting people. It is a real cultural venue, hosting regular exhibitions, workshops, concerts and events. This inimitable space draws one into a meditative state of mind and heart. Everyone fortunate enough to visit this building says that they breathe an atmosphere of peace and serenity the minute they cross the threshold. The mention of Moroccan culture immediately implies Moroccan cuisine, and what more beguiling setting than this pure and refined interior for sampling a cuisine abounding in cultural exchange; a subtle blend of sweet and sour, the inheritance of Berber, Jewish and Arab-Andalucian influences. Enjoy!
