This is a great place if you want a local style lunch. After wandering the dusty souks, it is a nice little corner to grab a tasty mixed grill and moroccan salads. The service was super friendly and we had a taster of different things on the menu. Cheap and cheerful :)

We tried to go to this place on the strength of the review saying they'd been 31 times and ended up wandering through tiny back streets miles from the actual restaurant, based on the pin on trip advisor. Gave up. Tried again another day after checking address on Google maps. Food was average and we had better food for the... More

this is definitely not the place to go if you want to take your company out for something big. but it's a perfect place for a non-pretentious, but typical local lunch. located on a small square with some tables outside, there is no menue to choose from. you just get the lunch of the day, with a first dish, a...

In our last day in Marrakech we bumped into Chez Abdelhay. Its in a noce corner from where you can observe the bustling of Marrakech. The menu was fixed and made of a moroccan salad, a delitious lentil soup and mixed bruchette, plus moroccan tea in the end. We paid 140 dirhams for two. Good food, great staff and very... More

We are 100% in favour of the "Find a Good Thing and Stick with it" mentality. During our 5 weeks in Marrakech we ended up eating at Chez Abdelhay 31 days in total... not the first day, not the last day and I think we ate at one other place once (disappoint, thus only once). Strolling from our riad to... More

Finally a TA restaurant where you also see local people getting food. Just sit down, say yes and enjoy whatever they bring you. Its safe, clean and tasty and the best value you'll see in Marrakech (at least for a Trip Advisor restaurant)

I've eaten lunch here a few times recently and it is great value, authentic medina street food. The decor is rustic - just a few tables in the street next to the Ben Youssef mosque. Try the lamb chops, they're delicious. Portions of everything are very small, so be sure to order at least a couple of things. Expect to... More

This is our second time to Marrakech and this time we are here for a month. Even though the accommodation is very inexpensive, it can be hard to find a cheap, good restaurant, without going to the square (where "good" is unlikely). On our first day an English lady recommended these guys and we are so glad we found them... More
