There were crying kids which hindered the experience. You should put small kids in a separate area because some of us left our kids for the overall experience

Service was impeccable and our food was wonderful. Since we were sitting outside the noise levels might be out of the restaurant’s control. The ambience is lovely too

The food and service were amazing! Not just good, but really really good!!! But you have to be aware of prices and budget at least $600 per person to have a quality experience and that doesn’t include alcohol simply because we don’t do it)))

About the restaurant

In true Moroccan style, the restaurant’s series of moody rooms, arches and alcoves combine to create an ambience akin to a traditional home in Marrakesh. The tobacco-coloured walls have been hand polished and wax plastered in the Moroccan tradition of Tadelakt. Lanterns, rugs and artefacts have been specially procured from around the region. And the food is simply magical. Open for dinner only.
