Reviewed 10 May 2014

They have brilliant food, but really need to market themselves more. They serve terrific local dishes, but some people may not know what it is. I speak French, but without it, you may feel a little lost there and the food is not explained to Anglophones. Great experience!

“Lovely surroundings, okay food”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

The restaurant is nicely appointed, with a decent little roof terrace and pleasant dining surroundings in the restaurant (particularly liked some of the older photographs on the wall. Staff were attentive, without intruding and generally cheerful and helpful. The food was fine, too, if you like that sort of thing. Frankly, we didn't see the point in tarting up a lamb tagine, so that it was a lightly spiced lamb stew on a rectangle of mashed potato...everything was well cooked, but, to be honest, we preferred the food at some of the most basic stalls in the main square. It does feel harsh to only give three stars as I'm sure the Comptoir is catering to unadventurous Western taste buds, but we would have preferred something more authentic, cooked really well.

“Excellent food - excellent”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We visited Le Comptoir du Pacha after a recommendation from our Riad owner and was not disappointed at all. We were 4 (spouse and in-laws) and each had a different entree and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The presentation was grand, the portions just right. And the Chef Surprise for dessert was wonderfully prepared. The interior is a modern interpretation of a local Riad and is intimate and enjoyable. There as a terrace, but no one was seated there. When you're tired of oily tajines and local market food, this is the place!

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We went here on day 8 of our holidays. Wanted to have a classy meal after eating street food and locally cooked Tajines.The ambience is perfect and the food is even better. We had a little issue with our service, but it got sorted once we pointed it out to the owner. They were short staffed and all the reservations turned up at the same time causing service issues.
The menu is bilingual ( French and English) and sitting is airconditioned or on open terrace.
They serve wines and beers. Don't remember if other alcohol is available.
The place is hidden inside and we had to use google maps to locate it. We were walking from the Medina square,since no cabs were willing to take us in the evening traffic. It took us around 15~20 minutes to reach from the square.

Very good service and lovely surroundings. We both had steak (ribeye & fillet) The Fillet was the best flavour of the two and cooked to perfection.
