Fantastic French food. Great service. An older crowd. Lapin had wonderful mushrooms and flavor. Loved the fresh crab salad.

Ate here twice over the last weekend. Once by myself and once with my husband. On both occasions the service was very good and we really enjoyed the food. Steak, dauphinoise and chocolate mousse with a great glass of red the first time. Beef Wellington, chicken in mushroom sauce and the mousse to share, all lovely. Outside the medina but... More

If you want a break from the hussle and bussle of the medina, and don't mind a higher price for a truely great meal, then this is the place to go. A wide menu and wine choice. French food and fresh produce. We managed with English.

Good quality food, surprising and tasteful variation of gazpacho starter course. Nicely decorated, European modern style.

This lived up to our Riad owner's description: he's a French foodie voluntarily exiled in Marrakech. Pan fried clams and moules in plenty of excellently garlicky sauce, parsley and white wine to start. We had oysters too; fresh and flavoursome altho lacking enough onion and red wine vinegar for our tastes. Small but perfectly formed filet de boeuf was well... More

Got the address from a morokkan friend... Guess the expectations were too high. Staff was friendly, ambience OK and the food average

We visited this restaurant in its new location. A beutiful villa in the nice Hibernage. Upon arrival the restaurant manager welcomed us and let us choose ourselves the table we liked. This was the only contact we had with during the rest of the evening. He spent his time playing with his phone or sitting down at tables having nice... More

We went just after its new opening in the new venue and it was packed. Go around 8pm before it gets too busy. Good solid french fare, great surroundings and atmosphere - a bonus in good weather that you can eat al fresco. One of the few french restaurants that maintains its level of service and food - not an... More

We visited the recently relocated Le Canaille which is now in a modern spacious elegantly decorated venue (much bigger than their previous spot I hear). Unfortunately our French is next to non existent which made ordering with their French only menu problematic, somehow we managed to order the right things but I can't help but feel that I could have...
