Very nice small restaurant with typical, well prepared authentic food. Not far form The Square but a bit hidden and therefore rather quiet. Very reasonably priced And, if you ask, you can get a (hidden) bottle of wine (which of course is not on the menu.)

Small scale restaurant, rustic setting, good food, friendly owners/family and fair prices (check price of Moroccan wines in advance as they are not on the menu and they are - in comparison - pricey).

Had read some good reviews on trip advisor and decided to give it a go! Was the right decision!! Although it doesn't look that appealing from the outside it is amazing inside! Candlelit dinner under the trees!! Dinner was delicious! And to top the Moroccan birthday off we were able to get a bottle of wine! Turns out Moroccan wine... More

The restaraunt at riad jama was excellent value but the food served was some of the best I had in Marrakech. It's a family run place and you could tell - everything was done with great gusto and pride and this created a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely return if back in Marrakech and would 100% reccomend.

We booked this place on the day for our party of 14 - they could not have been more accommodating. We took their recommendation of mixed starters and a variety of main dishes - meat and vegetarian. Yes, the food came out at a leisurely pace (I think due to the relatively small size of the kitchen), but it was... More

We visited this Restaurant in the evening. It is located in the Center of the Medina. The food (we've taken Couscous) was excellent. Wine is also available. The waiter was really friendly. The atmosphere is especially for couples very romantic. Very good value for money.

Just went there for lunch, after finding this restaurant almost by accident. It was just FANTASTIC. Totally honest and genuine Moroccan food (contrary to many/most near the Médina). Quite inexpensive and family style food. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere was lovely and reviews good so we thought we'd give it a try- Mistake no.1. while the food was fine ( although tiny serves). Our waiter made at least 10 slip ups in our short visit including - getting order wrong X2, not bringing things we asked for at all, not adding up the bill correctly, etc,etc. On the... More
