Great atmosphere, very intimate. The prices were great, but for four people only order three meals. The service was excellent very family oriented. And clean. Three meals, two bottles of wine and two desserts came to 34/pp. U.S.

One of the top two meals I had in Morocco.

Hands down this is best resto in Marrakech. We couldn't stop going there during our stay. Definitely try the roasted lamb shoulder with almonds for two. I only wish I could hang out in the kitchen and learn a thing or two from the sisters that run this place.

Fantastic food. We pre-ordered the slow cooked shoulder of lamb when we booked, and did not regret it -- even though we could not eat it all! Al Fassia deserves it's excellent reputation. The women who work there are wonderfully warm and welcoming. The food it fantastic, and, although not cheap, also not excessively priced. The wine list is good, too. We ate very well (including a great bottle of wine) for about about 800 dirhams for the 2 of us. I would not want to miss this when visiting Marrakesh. You must reserve ahead if you want to get in. Al Fassia is very popular.

Our tour added an excursion to "Al Fassia" for a evening of traditional Moroccan entertainment. For around $55 USD plus tip, we got a rather bland four course meal with the main dish being abundant couscous with a bit of stewed vegetable and a very dry chicken breast. I don't even remember what the other food was because it was not memorable in the slightest. The wine was actually okay and for our money, we got a half bottle each of our choice of red, white or rose. There was a small Moroccan band playing throughout dinner. The music was on somewhat of an endless loop increasing in tempo only when the dancers appeared. First up was a rather mediocre belly dancer who plucked people out of the audience to jiggle their goods. There was a horrible magician who's best trick was stuffing a piece of cloth down a woman's shirt and pulling it out revealing a bra attached at the end to which the woman announced, "that is not mine. I don't wear underwear". This ended up being the most entertaining part of the evening as this same woman volunteered again during a hat dance and did the splits. Every man in the place was up on their feet trying to get a peek. Yikes. The magician was followed by an interesting drumming routine. But then a 50-something woman came out and it seems her talent was how well she could attempt to smother the men in the audience with her breasts. Yikes again! I felt quite a disconnect from what I assumed was typical Muslim culture. Anyway...she was followed by a much better belly dancer who stomped off the stage after several minutes in a huff for some unknown reason. Interesting evening voyeuristically which went on and on and on... For all that, the setting was quite beautiful and the seating typically Moroccan with low chairs and lots of pillows.

This restaurant is located at the Hotel Palais Jamai. The decor is very inviting. The food was quite good and plentiful. Nice wine list.
