Lovely food. really friendly staff members. will be using this place again as it's clean and good. I am staying in Morocco for few days and thinking to have my last supper here again, before I head back to UK.

Stopped in for lunch to escape the rain. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food we received was good. Ordered a chicken tagine and lamb couscous, both of which were tasty - although a bit more lamb would have been nice.

Don't be put off by its looks, inside or out. This place was busy the night we went, with locals and visitors alike. Food is authentic, tasty and well cooked. We had the vegetable tagine. With drinks and olives, our bill came to under £10 for 3 people. Service was friendly and prompt.

One of the cheapest places we've dined in Marrakesh. Nothing fancy at all but the food was OH SO GOOD! We opted to sit outside and we're glad we did...even though there were constant fumes from the motorcycles that kept on zooming by. We wanted to return for lunch but walked out immediately...we made the mistake of wanting to sit... More

My menue was ok but from my wife the vegetarian tagine was just bad to much pepper. I like to eat spicy but the vegetables tasted like you eating pure pepper

Found this restaurant along a side street off Jamaa El Fna - not in the souk so easy to find (behind the line of cash machines). Not a particularly touristy street or restaurant but the locals tend to use it which is why we tried it. Doesn't look great from the outside, but beautiful tiled walls inside. However, you go...

The food is delicious and the prices are very low (30dhs for a tajine). The restaurant itself is not attractive at all but the food is so good that you don't pay attention to the place anymore. I recommand the lamb tajine. You should really try this restaurant that is very close to Jamaa El Fna square.

Not very attractive place but the food is delicious. The lamb tajine is especially tasty. Their mint tea is also very good. The restaurant is well located (next to Jamaa el Fna) and the prices are very low (30-35dh per dish). This is a must try in Marrakech!
