Located in the Medina of the city, the restaurant is reached through a series of small alleys that from the beginning provide an intriguing sensation. Although the lights are a bit too low to admire the architecture of the inner foyer, the main patio decorations invite to come in and the set up is cozy and inviting. I only had... More

Very expensive and the food was not good. The service was horrible, we waited a long time for our bill after repeated mistakes. I would not recommend this restaurant!

I was presented the menu from which I had to choose a selection of three dishes. The one with the pastilla is quite nice. The pastilla itself is freshly cooked and tasty. The decoration provides a great atmosphere to the meal. The tables, sofas and chairs are very typical. So are the wooden lights and the ceramic walls. All of... More

Felt like a cruise ship. Tour groups everywhere. Food was bland, waitstaff unfriendly, and their credit card machine was "broken" so we had to pay with cash. They also charge for the "dinner spectacle" show. Avoid this tourist trap at all cost.

I see that there is another place that is called "Al Fassia" but we went to this one "Restaurant al Fassia" and we were in one of the two tour groups there. The decor was lovely, the service good, the entertainment appealed to the group and the food enjoyable.

Like the Riad round the corner that sent us here, the restaurant is very beautiful. Very good service, friendly, helpful waiters. Starters were substantial and delicious. Tagine/couscous combo later in our holiday became tedious, but this was one of the better ones. Entertaining Toureg and Berber floor show although 2 belly dancers seems one too many. The musicians were superb... More

We ate here after an extremely hard walk thru the old city The atmosphere was great, the service fast and very courteous and the local dishes they served were out of this world. Really a super place to go and enjoy
