The atmosphere is really good and the place is very nice and cozy. But this is about it. Tried the lamb tajine but it was a nightmare. For the price, either I should have munched something else or given a better tajine. Really, really poor! Sad given lamb tajine is the national food and it ought to be simple enough to make a decent one to please a hungry foreigner.

Perhaps other menu items are better!

Ate here having read the reviews which are overwhelmingly positive. I can understand why that's the case.
The interior is reminiscent of a quirky pub but with a distinctively North African twist. This, along with friendly staff, serve to create a welcoming atmosphere.
The food was great; my girlfriend had the daily special which was a swordfish steak. She ranked it among the best food we had in Morocco. This quality paired with high levels of service and low prices should put Les 3 Portes on everyone's list

Delightful authentic restaurant. Not the biggest menu and some of the tables a bit uncomfortable ( we were on stools which was fine but could not lean back as there was a pot plant behind us). No alcohol either. But the food was tasty, the portions perfect, the service extremely pleasant and it was incredibly cheap. Go there!

We really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere at Les 3 portes. We eat out 4 times in the medina, including restaurants with higher trip advisor ratings. But Les 3 Portes was the best value for money. Highly Recommend

We ended up going there twice as the food was just amazing - one of the best tagines I ever had! As the prices are very moderate we treated ourselves for a proper 3 course meal the 2nd time and went home stuffed! The waiter was really nice and friendly and the place looks just so cosy!
One of the best places in Morocco we went to!
