We had a great meal with quality food and excellent dancer and musicians. It is difficult to find so the restaurant can arrange to meet you from a taxi.

Celebrating my daughter 30th anniversary with family members and friends in this restaurant was a great choice. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, but the taxi drops you of on a certain point and the people of the restaurant come and get you. The atmosphere is relaxing and one can have some drinks first on the roof in... More

Having been recommended by our Riad, we had a table booked at Dar Zellij for dinner. We were told to wait near a busy road & we would be collected by a someone from the restaurant (apparently we would never find it by ourselves), we waited for 5-10 minutes and were approached by a man in a traditional djellaba &...

Recommended by locals, I wanted to try Dar Zellij, which is considered one of the most attractive restaurants in the local Medina. A commendable aspect is the pick-up service, whereby a member of staff will pick you up at your riad and will escort you through the souks to the restaurant; same thing for the ride home. I find that... More

Beautiful ambiance, tasty food, on the expensive side, live entertainment. We called to make reservations and they sent someone to pick us up from our different Riads and walk us through the labyrinth that is the old city to their location. When dinner was over another person magically appeared Nd walked us back to our Riads. Hospitality at its best.

Dar Zellij is among the best restaurants in Marrakesh. The riad has been meticulously renovated. To some it may be a tad too romantic or indeed expensive (say USD50 for dinner for two), but I would definitely recommend it. Upon arrival, you'll be invited to enjoy the view and a drink on the rooftop. When it cools down ,the opulent... More

We had first some drinks on the roof terrace to enjoy the mild evening. Afterwards we had a great dinner with a group of friends. This is also very well suitable for a couples dinner. Very relaxing. You just need to walk a bit as the cars cannot enter in the narrow streets. We would come again.
