“Nice environment, food just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

At the suggestion of another traveler, we had dinner here. Though there were many vacant tables and one host willing to seat us, the second hostess refused and made us sit on the terrace (second floor). This is less than ideal; the tables are heavy and the seating uncomfortable. And, if waiting for a table, this is the smoking area. The food was just okay - nothing special or remarkable and not particularly well spiced.

“One of my favorites in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

This is one of my favorites in Marrakech! I love the modern arabic food they appealingly serve. I try to go here every time I go to Marrakech. In 2013 I was there for a late dinner in february and a long lunch in october. Hopefully I will stay here some nights to sometime in the future... Its pretty expensive compared to Marrakech standard, but compered to what it would cost in Norway, its not that expensive.

“Excellent food, lovely surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

This was our first meal in Marrakech and I am very glad it was here. Right next door to our own Riad it offered excellent value for money and truly lovely, fresh food. The lemon chicken tagine was so tasty and the trio of salads were fresh and again full of flavour. The surroundings were gorgeous- serene and tranquil with an orange tree over head. Service unobtrusive and efficient. Both myself and my partner really enjoyed this dining experience and would definitely go back.

“Could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Visited the restaurant quite late on the evening we arrived in Marrakesh. We were allocated a table in a featureless area outside the main dining area. Food was ok but we thought the bill expensive. Perhaps we would have done better if we had arrived earlier or had a reservation. We did not go back

“Fabulous hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We only stayed for 2 nights and didn't really enjoy
Marrakech (not least because it was cold and wet) but this beautiful hotel more than made up for it. Our spectacular room had an attractive furnished terrace (that unfortunately was too wet to use) and a comfy sitting area. Large comfy bed, cute bathroom loving decorated with rose petals.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful welcome. The bar was cosy with a roaring log fire and again wonderfully decorated and furnished.

We would loved to have use the pool hidden amongst the foliage in the tropical garden, but alas the weather was against us.

The hotel was in a good location and if I ever went back to Marrakech (extremely unlikely!) I would definitely stay again!!
