This simple restaurant close to the Kasbah was wonderful. Our guide helped us choose a fantastic meal - starting with a Moroccan salad- followed by the very best tagine I ate in Morocco. We sat outside to enjoy the sunshine.The staff were charming and very helpful. We walked our lunch off by visiting the kasbah. This felt such an authentic... More

The people running this are doing well - small menu, comfortable seating, amazing views - they deserve all the plaudits they get. We had pastilla - Moroccain speciality - mixture of sweet and savoury. Plus quite delicious smoothies of date and fig. It's charming. Way up high. If you are visiting the Kasbah go no further.

We had a stop for lunch in this nice little restaurant with great panoramic view during our tour. The tajine we had here was the best we had during our three week holiday in Marocco! Beef tajine with dades is highly recommended! Also the owner is very friendly. Great place for lunch if you are visiting the kasbah of Telouet.

We stopped off at Kasbah Telouet during an itinerary organised by Wild Morocco and made our way to Lion d'Or after rambling around the magnificent kasbah. The food was very simple and extremely tasty - home-cooked, slow-cooked tagines that were an absolute delight. It was nice to eat indoors on a very hot day and we were joined by a... More

the best maroccan food we had on the whole trip to Marakech and kashbah tour. Very good tender meat and nice fruits made a perfect meal.

Have to agree with other reviews here - the food was fantastic. Unassuming little place in the small town of Telouet (which is a bit of a nightmare to get to). But really excellent Tagine(s), with lots of salad stuffs, and great service. Nice views too. Recommended.

I love The Morrocan food that I have had outside Morocco but was disappointed with my experiences in Morroco until my last day when our driver recommended Le Lion D'Or. Hooray for the Le Lion D'or!! Wonderful menu. Starter of cooked vegetable salads. Main course of chicken pastilla which was delicious, fresh fruit pudding and wonderful juices which were actually... More

What a big surprise to find what might very well be the best restaurant during our week in Marrakech not in the city but in the Atlas mountains! We visited on a day trip from Marrakech the kasbah of Telouet and Ait Ben Haddou. We had lunch at Le Lion d'Or which is a small restaurant located right next to... More
