We've eaten our fair share of tagines in our stay in Morocco. But the Lamb tagine I had here lady night was way above all the others I've had do far. It was flavoursome with salt cooked into the meat got a change. The eggplant salad was also delicious, made better by a squeeze of lemon juice on it.

Great place in Medina near Marketplace, with live Berber music both times we were there. Good food at good prices

Price-quality-wise, this is a very good restaurant. You can get a menu for as little as 70 MAD: salad, main course and dessert included. The Maroccan salad is very good and I really recommend the tajines and couscous. We came back two times here during our visit, that says it all right?

We went to Chez Brahim based on TripAdvisor reviews, looking for a relatively cheap lunch for 4 people. It was easy to find seats, the decorration was colourful but rather pleasing, and service was all-in-all fast and nice. We ordered menus (80-120 DH for entry, main dish, dessert). The fresh salads were good, and I particularly enjoyed my cooked salad.... More

We came here once for lunch and once for dinner and we were thoroughly impressed. You can tell that the tagines are cooked much slower and for longer than other restaurants in the area, making the flavours more complex. My favourite is the chicken tagging with lemon and olives, and the lamb with prunes was also delicious. The aubergine salad... More

We were recommended to come here by our riad and for Moroccan food at a reasonable price and we did enjoy it . The set menu was excellent value with good quality and generous portions . Musical accompaniment , local style , added atmosphere and the staff were friendly . Excellent value , not fine dining but good local fare

We decided to go to Chez Brahim on the last day of our stay in Marrakesh. The restaurant was just around the corner from our Riad and we had promised the guys outside we would try to get there. The service, food and ambience was great and we're sorry we didn't try it earlier. Between us we had a beef... More

Place dark, waiters not attentive but I found this everywhere.Food was just OK. The guy standing outside oversold it. The chicken skewers were under cooked. The Tajine was decent but vegetables overlooked, mushy.

Good Moroccan food and good stafff (Especially the guys on the door) !!. The live music was very nice !! The first time we visited it was full, which is a sign of quality. Only 2-3 mins from the the main square.

We stayed in a riad close by and it became quite comical trying to walk past the restaurants two ambassadors at the entrance trying to entice people inside. On our last day we gave in and gave it a go, after some great reviews on here. We were bowled over by the Lamb Tagine with Figs and Walnuts. My skewer... More
