It was not the first time I went to Kitchen6. It's my family's favorite place since last 3 years. Though it's still good, I have observed the dishes are curtailed over time. Full lamb dish Ouzi disappeared, scallops just to name two. Overall great experience always.

This place, from start to finish was a vibe and a half. I have been waiting what feels like forever to visit a nusr-et restaurant and it did not dissapoint. The show around the food being brought out to drinks being made in front of us, it was great. One of the great memories ill have. The steak, WOW, literally melted in my mouth. If you have a decent budget to play with, grab one of the golden steaks, the look alone was worth it, almost didnt want to eat it because it looked too beautiful

The location doesn’t get better if you want to ser the fountain. Unfortunately a lot if people only go there for a glass of wine and the take photos of the fountain. These guests have no respect for guests dining there. They stand right behind your seat and they are loud and annoying. The food is really good. But if you have to pay 82 dirham for bread you would expect fresh and warm bread. Not the case. Boring, half dry bread with tasteles condiments. Really disappointing. Beside from this: super nice service, good tasty main courses. I would like to recommend the restaurant, just take notice if the above mentioned things. 2 hour slots if you sit outside.
