Definitely the best Tagines we had in town and generally the food quality was very good. The prices are definitely high for the city but we felt like it was worth the $. The service was good but not great. The women definitely needed warming up with lots of smiles before they'll give one back; however we received everything we needed. We thought lunch ended at 2:30 but I Think that's last seating rather than closing. Some guests arrived closer to 2:30 and was seated.

We went on a tour afterwards and our tour guide said he also recommends the restaurant to his other clients. There are two, but this one in the new city is better according to him.

As a tourist, we thought it was a great experience in that we ate great tradional cuisine with modern comforts.

One of the best restaurants in Marrakech. Would highly recommend it. Quite expensive but worth it. Polite staff

After searching for an hour for somewhere to eat we settled on eating here because of the good reviews. However from the moment we walked in we felt unwelcome... we were greated by the head waitress who asked 'have you booked a table' we had not and from then she looked down on us. She didn't great us with a or smile or ask how we were etc. We were dumped on a table and the seating was very uncomfortable. We were also crowded by other tables. All the guests looked miserable which made the whole atmosphere awkward. The waitress's behaved like we were a burden rather than guests, we felt very unwelcome. Onto the food... The tajine chicken with egg was mediocre and lacked vegetables and flavour. The vegetarian tajine was also bland. The main problem was the inhospitable front of house woman. I myself have been a waitress and have worked front of house and I would smile and great every customer as though they were royalty. Manors cost nothing. So if you are looking for an over priced meal with a rude server this the place for you. Utter shame as the reviews do not reflect the reality of the place. Head to the old town and find a basic looking restaurant as they are much more accommodating and the food in the medina is wonderful.
On top of all of this the temperature inside was uncomfortable and far too hot.
Our experience here was terrible.

We went to Al Fassia with our Moroccan friends. We went at around 2:00 pm and they close at 2:30. the staff were very accommodating and super nice, the food was amazing. The appetizers and salads were to die for. We ordered different dishes and we shared. The tea is superb and the desserts were delicious.

We had the pleasure of being served by Madam Fatiha (see in photo and make sure you ask for her). She made our night extra special, her kindness and charisma made us feel welcome and at home. The food was wonderful and portions were large and well priced. Thank you for a great night :)
