I am very surprised that this restaurant is rated so low as the food was fantastic. I found it extremely hard to find the restaurant to review and I wonder if others have too hence the limited number of reviews. Food was a breath of fresh air. We ate here as a group which was great as I got to... More

Charming restaurant with excellent menu offering mix of Moroccan and European dishes. Food is fresh, appealing and portions generous. Dining area is close to outdoor pool, so very calming, esp in the evenings. Full bar menu also.

Really delicious food and great service. Had fresh oysters, orange juice, and shared a salad and pizza. Cost me only 200 dirham. Excellent selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

We enjoyed the lovet evening outside at the pool, and the food were very good. However, we felt the waiters were to pushy, for example pouring our wine and service our starters before we had finished our aperitifs.

I went there prior to Christmas in a large group and they had done a very nice job of making it look festive. The staff did very well to remember the individual orders. The food was very good, apart from my steak, which was slightly grisly. The meat was tender though. It was reasonably priced and there was no confusion... More

Our tour group had its final dinner here organised by our tour leader. We found the food here good and at reasonable prices. The place was lively & quite cosy at the same time. Can recommend a visit to this Chez.

The restaurant at the front was empty but the bar/restaurant around the pool was busy and lively. The bar shows football matches and was lively and relaxed, alcoholic drinks were very reasonably priced. The food in the restaurant was delicious, the service efficient and friendly, and we generally had a relaxed and lovely meal.

I went here with my girlfriend for dinner. Despite the restaurant being empty, an ominous sign, it was excellent. Attentive service from the get go and a simple but tasty looking menu. I had the beef carpaccio for a starter and the sirloin steak for main. Both were delicious. My girlfriend had the chicken for her main and also said... More

Having eaten here several times earlier this year we were keen to return on this visit to Marrakech, we were not disappointed. The setting is lovely and we were able to sit outside by the small pool, very friendly and attentive service. The menu has a good range of choices from local Moroccan dishes to steaks and pizzas and the... More
