Riad Rcif has a stunning interior and food to match. I was treated with excellent service from Mohammad and his mother's cooking was perfection.

I was traveling alone and felt extremely welcome at Riad Rcif. I was a little lost when I arrived, but someone from the Riad came to get me and bring me there. Everyone on staff is extremely friendly, professional, generous, and knowledgeable about the history of the Riad. The space is gorgeous, and the food (breakfast and dinner) is amazing.... More

Mama Fatima was a wonderful host. All of her food creations were authentic and the flavors burst in your mouth! The food was freshly made for every meal and prepared with the freshest ingredients.

It is already a mission to find the restaurant, which is not easy at all. Be sure that you come one hour in advance and not too hungry.

The site of this place alone deserves a 5/5. Then on top of that you get 5 star service and incredible food. Cannot recommend highly enough
