A magnificent Moroccan styled-meal with chicken pastilla, assorted mezze, chicken, fish & lamb tagines and royal couscous, and crème pastilla to finish. The highlight was the lamb tagine but overall it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time

We were served a tradtional lamb tagine prepared with local fruits and vegetables. It was so tender and juicy you could cut it with a fork. It was accompanied by a Moroccan salad which is comprised of 7 different cooked vegetables offered in 7 separate dishes. Each was prepared with various aromatic spices that just melted in your mouth. We... More

We had dinner here for one night of our stay. It was as good as any of the fine dining in Marrakech. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. Warning, you will not leave hungry. Also have the mint tea at the end of the meal. One of the best on my entire trip. Treated my daughter and myself like revered... More

We had lunch at this restaurant, upon recommendation of our riad staff. While it may be a bit difficult to locate without direction (we were escorted there), being off of one of the main roads added to the peacefulness of the riad / our dining experience. The setting itself was absolutely beautiful and exceptionally well-kept (the space is owned by... More

We needed a really nice restaurant in the centre so we asked the hotel staff we stayed in Sirayane boutique & spa, they all recommended this on including a couple of the guests. The receptionist from our hotel called up and booked us a slot at 19.30pm then it was a taxi drop off and down a street ally (need... More

We had vegetable soup, which was really good, this was followed by chicken pastille, which is traditional Moroccan meal, it included chicken, a thin pastry crust and cinnamon - it was sweet and savory. The 3rd course was seven (7) fresh vegetables - our favorite... More

We ate here 1 night and had a traditional Moroccan meal. The food was superb,extremely tasty and the lamb just melted in my mouth it was so nice. Service was excellent too. My only negative is the seating arrangements felt awkward and uncomfortable but thats a small price to pay for how good this place is. Ate here May 2013

The level of service that we experienced at Riad was at that same level yet made even more special because it was so personal. I was most impressed with their ability to be perfectly flexible. We ordered wonderful meals that were exactly what we felt like eating, ate our meals wherever we felt like at that time and they even... More

Absolutely loved the chicken pastilla, assortment of moroccan salads and the briwates for dinner! Service was better than any of the 3-Michelin Star restaurants we've been to. We were lucky to have the option to have dinner in a private dining room, live Moroccan music outside which made it extra special. Our high expectations for breakfast were surpassed with a... More
