Place where you must go during you trip to Marrakesh. Expensive but worth to go. Very nice music and entertainment at evenings. Open only few hours daily.

This place was amazing, it is a bit touristy but we enjoyed! I tend to go to more local places when I travel but this is a great exposure to the culture of Marrakesh. The dinner was nice and it is always nice to have a good show, we enjoyed the dancers and the music. The room was beautiful...the level... More

Serves alcohol and does a great set menu with sooo much food. Each plate was as delicious as the last. Make sure you book as it gets busy here especially because of the live... More

Stunning decor. We tried the set meal which arrived in a reasonable time, piping hot. The food was excellent, although the place was very quiet as it being low season. No complaints about service, beer was a bit expensive but lucky to get offered one in the Medina. Overall a very nice experience.

The decor is great But very cold restaurant Service slow But not sure about the food, it was only ok A little touristy for me could not enjoy meal as people taking photos constantly. A little over rated but worth a visit for the decor alone.

Everyone who visits Marrakech should go to this restaurant!! The restaurant is absolutely stunning. It looks like you're entering an old mosque or palace, with mosaiques and carvings on the walls. And the food is incredible. It's the best food I've had during my 3 day visit to Marrakech. We had a 12 course dinner, where we sampled different dishes... More

This place was super close to where we were staying (Riad Jona), but the entrance was enticing and we gave it a try. They had fun traditional music, entertainers and belly-dancing during dinner. The food was good and good prices. All of the guests appeared to be tourists, but it was fun and good experience.
