This place has decent rooms and good views. But unfortunately the food service is notoriously sluggish, unfriendly, ludicrous, and silly. We have been promised breakfast at 8.30, we waited for it for hours.

This restaurant has a series of whimsical terraces, from which to dine, have tea, or take photos. It is in close proximity to the casbah and has some great views of the city. The lemon chicken, sweet meat tagine, cooked salads, and soups are traditional and delicious. The staff is attentive, friendly, and eager to please. Allow yourself some time... More

I had lunch here. The service was sporadic and the place was a bit dirty (but much better than some of the other joints in town). Food more than made up for it - was fantastic.

Really good food compared to other restaurants we visited in Chefchaouen. The Morrocain soup and vegetable soup, as well as the sweet meat tagine were delicious. No prices on the menu, but you can ask for it. Nice terraces on different floors. Good service. (Price 2016: 100DH p.p. for a complete menu (we didn't take the desert, because we were... More

We sat on the upstairs terrace and enjoyed the cool breeze and beautiful views of the square and mountains. The food was good and service was friendly. The interior design and finishing are really quite lovely

Amazing twilight dinner with new Swiss friends, each of us having a different tangine, chicken, beef and rabbit...each equally great...was the first night of the Decima Music Festival and was serenaded by the riveting voices, first of exquisite Samira Kadiri and then the gypsey flamenco Maria Jose Santiago from the Kasba where the King Of Morocco was dining....Hicham El Maataoul...

As soon as the waiter brought our beverages and put down a basket of the best bread we found over two weeks in Morocco, I started to love Chez Hicham restaurant. The harira (a bean soup traditional to Ramadan time) was outstanding. The waiters were very friendly and even gave us a couple of small rounds of the bread to... More

We went to Hicham one mid-afternoon and it was a delightful experience. The waiter was very attentive. The food was fresh and all meat was cooked perfectly. We'd recommend the beef kebabs, lemon chicken and Moroccan soup.

We dined here one evening and the reviews were mixed. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The staff were not friendly and helpful, bordering on rude by the end. Most of the food (traditional Moroccan) was good but the pastilla was dry and tasteless. The prices were higher than I expected. The fireplace was burning and was delightful; it... More
