We were trying to keep costs down for our Marrakech holiday, but splashed out a couple of times - I'm very glad one of them was at Le Tanjia! When we walked in through the doorway we were greeted by the sound of music coming from the trio sitting in the restaurant's courtyard, and thankfully got a table by the balcony so we could continue to watch them playing. The food prices were definitely higher than we'd been paying elsewhere, but I was still able to enjoy a glass of wine for around 5 GBP, and we ordered the beef tanjia to share which came to about 13 GBP each. The tanjia was the most delicious meal I had during our trip - the meat had been cooked to fall-off-the-bone melt-in-your-mouth perfection, beautifully seasoned and flavoured with preserved lemons for a bit of zing, and came with a selection of vegetable sides to balance things out. At around half 10, there was an extra bit of fun as a troupe of talented belly dancers descended on the diners (and I found myself being dragged up to balance a tray of lit candles on my head...)
The only gripe that stops this from being a 5-star review was the speed of service at Le Tanjia - looking through other reviews, we weren't alone in finding things a bit lackadaisical! We were really enjoying the atmosphere, so we didn't mind how long it took the food to arrive, but we were disappointed by how long it took to attract the waiters' attention to get the bill.
But I thoroughly enjoyed our evening, and don't want to end on a negative note! Possibly to be avoided if you're in a hurry, but for an evening of relaxed holiday dining this is certainly one to beat.
