After dodging reckless motor scooters through a darkish and littered alleyway, we finally arrived. Inside the place is very stuffy with no air circulating. The menus appear to be year's old. The "chef" never changes anything and the pages are stained. NO ALCOHOL AT ALL!...More

Not easy to find but once inside the building is lovely, a really beautiful setting . But it is the setting that you're paying for. The food is average, no better than you get in any other restaurant in Marrakech and a LOT more expensive....More

This restaurant served great food that was veggie friendly and Moroccan! Was nice to be able to experience local cuisine that was veggie friendly. The location is a little tucked away but it is worth the trip, very very beautiful restaurant!

Situated in the very heart of the souks, this building is a hidden secret, only found by the discerning and curious visitor, where history is recorded in the delicate tracery of the stucco and skilfully carved wood. In the year 2000 , Marrakech Riads, a leading player in the restoration of the riads of Marrakech, brought Dar Cherifa back to life, and simultaneously unveiled a hidden treasure of the medina, the refined decor of this building recalling that of the Medersa Ben Youssef, jewel of the Saadian era (16th century) and one of the finest monuments of Marrakech. Renovated with the greatest care and attention to detail, with the participation of renowned craftsmen so as to maintain its authenticity and splendour, Dar Cherifa welcomes all visitors eager to meet new and interesting people. It is a real cultural venue, hosting regular exhibitions, workshops, concerts and events. This inimitable space draws one into a meditative state of mind and heart. Everyone fortunate enough to visit this building says that they breathe an atmosphere of peace and serenity the minute they cross the threshold. The mention of Moroccan culture immediately implies Moroccan cuisine, and what more beguiling setting than this pure and refined interior for sampling a cuisine abounding in cultural exchange; a subtle blend of sweet and sour, the inheritance of Berber, Jewish and Arab-Andalucian influences. Enjoy!
