Undeniably this is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been to in terms of the interior. However the food we were served was far below average. I had some incredible tagines during my visit to Marrakech but the lamb tagine I ate here was...More

We got chicken, vegetables and cous cous and a lamb tagine. All was pretty bland compared to some places we had eaten for half the price. The fresh juice was delicious so recommend popping in for a drink and seeing this beautiful building.

The historic Cherifa is very hard to find, down winding alleyways twisting, turning paths, but well worth the effort. We climbed soooooo many stairs to the roof; also worth it. Lunch on the roof is wonderful ... try the ginger juice! Traditional Moroccan with the...More

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!
