We went to this place, accompanied by a concierge of our hotel who just turned day off. He had his commission, so he was happy. We were happy too as the food served was fresh and good. 3 Menus are offered. They are very expensive for Marrakech. Wine is also expensive. The decoration is great and the atmosphere looks like...

Not very good advice from our concierge! Wonderful old room just off the medina with fabulous painted ceiling and hangings. Very authentic and atmospheric feel of old Morocco. But that is the good part over. We had the middle of three set menus. One waiter in the whole room who was utterly rushed off his feet. He tried to smile... More

Over priced restaurant targeting tourists. Good is good but not great and definitely not worthy for the price. They have 3 courses set menu ONLY: one for 390dh, second for 550dh and third one for 790dh. All 3 very-very similar and for everything else you will have to pay for it a triple the price of anywhere else out already... More

Dark lighting an obvious ploy. Too many starters, of which most of were unpleasant & the thought did cross our minds that will so much waste they must be re-used. Main course small & over cooked chicken. Husband very ill for the next 12 hours after eating the lamb. Ridiculously expensive too! An obvious scam going on with the hotel... More

The stalls of the main square are fun but for the best food and better service, head toward Koutoubia Mosque and down a darkish alley to Dar El Baroud. I'm seeing some negative reviews of this restaurant but my wife and I had a great dinner here. I felt that the salads were fresh and flavorful and that the general... More

we came here from advice from our reception at our hotel, looked very traditional Moroccan with candles lit all over, it was a little dark, there were another two tables as well. There was only set menu 390MAD was cheapest and seemed a lot on there, when the starter arrived there were so many dishes of vegetables and bread we... More

Our taxi driver dropped us off at this restaurant, as we'd asked for a typical Moroccan experience. It was naive of us to have not checked out ourselves. The restaurant is beautifully Moroccan with a musician playing. There were only two other tables dining, so a little lacking in atmosphere. However, spider senses were tingling on the realisation that the... More

Low lighting was a good ploy to disguise the food which was really poor, the salads had been scraped off several other plates before being served to us and the tagines were tiny. Service was one waiter and he did an ok job. The concierge at Sofitel recommended it, but it was really terrible. Avoid!

Little expensive but worth it. Great traditional morocan food and environment. Highly recommended. All of their meal are for minimum two persons, so u could share one course.

This restaurant was recommended by the place where we were staying. Easy to reach by taxi and an atmospheric restaurant with musicians playing. Excellent advice from a previous review to order from the a la carte menu. Delicious food but the chicken portions in the tagine were small; one of our party had couscous which saved those of us without;... More
