Our first night in Morocco, we decided to eat the Hotel's restaurant and were seriously impressed with the food. Coming into Morocco, we were concerned with the vegetarian options for us.

It is worth eating in this restaurant to visit the Palais Faraj and also enjoy the stunning views from this roof-top restaurant. They have both a local menu and an international menu. I tried some local dishes and they were ok, but nothing special.

We ate on the terrace which has a great view and a very nice setting. The pastilla starter was very tasty and enjoyable. However, both main courses sadly could only be described as average.... beef tagine with prunes, and brochettes of mixed meat. Service is excellent with many staff.

Eat here after you are tired of tangines! Excellent quality food and service in a beautifully restored palace that cost $9-12 million US to renovate over 4 years!

Everything was good - even excelent but this is not a place for real Moroccan food. The tastes were more European. The wine list is wide and the prices are very fair.
