First of all, this restaurant is a bit hidden and requires a little exploration to find. However, if you find it, you are in for a treat! My friend and I ordered their petite dinner 4 course meal. It was amazing! the first course was eight plates of pure joy. Then the main course was delicious. I ordered couscous as... More

Wonderful setting - the house is a real architectural and design gem, with lots of original features. The food is traditional Moroccan with all the great flavours you typically associate with the country. Excellent service from all the staff, definitely the best restaurant we found in Marrakech and worth the trouble to locate. Openstreetmap has a much better handle on... More

The phrase 'hidden gem' is very applicable here - it took us a while to find the place (and asking stallholders in the souk drew a blank!) but googlemaps got us there in the end. Once we found it, it was wonderful - the most authentic Moroccan meal we had during our stay. ENORMOUS portions, we had the 'petit diner'... More

Coming here late in the evening, and then beeing part of the 1001- nights stories. Wonderful, this was both really good food, but even more important, the athmosphere. Marrocan food and very friendly staff.

We selected the Moroccan salad for appetizer, I chose the vegetable tagine, and my husband requested the vegetable cous cous. Instead of one salad that we expected, the waiter placed many different salad choices on our table, along with the offering of olives and bread. Every one was so delicious: eggplant, sweet carrots, mixed veggies, beets. By the time the... More

This really is a hidden gem which is a little hard to find without local help, however there was no lack of offers from people wanting to escort us as we stood in the street with map open! We were led down several twisting, narrow, dimly lit dark alleys to an almost anonymous door (apart from a very discreet brass... More

Being dropped off by the taxi and greeted by the red Road staff and treated to a walk-through alley ways to handle almost hidden doorway was a unique experience. Walking inside, the atmosphere was amazing! The architecture and beauty was truly remarkable! The lights, design, the rooms, everything was designed to please. Smelled fantastic and looked fantastic as well. Good... More

We stumbled upon a review by MarocMama with a paragraph on this restaurant and were intrigued enough to try it out. We went to find it and see whether we could get in without a reservation. Upon reaching the street and then alley, we bumped into helpful souls who told us that it is not possible to get into the... More

Off the beaten path deep in the souk is a fantastic restaurant that deserves a far better rating than it has. Having eaten at restaurants ranked much higher I can say this was one of my best meals in Marrakech. Authentic food served in a gorgeous setting of an old home. Service can be slow but that's part of the... More
