On recommendation from the superb Riad we stayed at, Riad Palais des Princesses, we dined at Dar Essalam on our final night in Marrakech and could not have asked for a more perfect setting for the occasion.
Although made famous by the filming of The Man Who Knew Too Much by Alfred Hitchcock, it clearly embraces its local culture and the interior has a wonderful, classic Moroccan feel which gives the restaurant a great atmosphere.
The waiters offer excellent service and always comes with a smile and a great sense of humour. There is a good selection of wine (important for those finding it hard to come by in Marrakech like us!) and even more importantly, the food was excellent.
We had a beef tagine and chicken/vegetable cous cous which were two of the best meals all holiday, and came complete with some fantastic entertainment (in particular, the two guys after 10pm) offering local music and dance which really compliments the food and provides a great traditional feel to the place.
It's only a 5 minute walk from the main Jemaa el Fna square and is absolutely worth a visit!
