We were recommended this place as excellent but it must have been a bad night because our experience as well as other diners was terrible. From the very start, most of the food was unavailable and the menu was not extensive in the first place. My husband's vegetable tagine was cold although he did say 'some of it is luke warm'; my kefta and egg tagine was rather dry and my friend's main came out with her starter, a pepper salad that mysteriously included tuna. It was so bad, it was funny. My other friend thought he was getting the prawns which were recommended as a replacement for the 2 other items not available on the menu - these, in fact, turned out to be prunes! However, he did admit it was rather nice. A German guest on the next table was spotted pouring his mint tea in to a flower pot; it was cold! The staff were obviously devastated and very apologetic so I find it hard to be too harsh.

Try tajine d'agneau aux pruneaux et amandes - cooked in a traditional clay 'tajine' pot with rich flavour and most delicate meat we've tried in Marrakech!

We did some shopping and were asked upstairs by the friendly and non pushing guy at the door. Our children are no big and brave type of eaters so they ordered a pancake (which we eat as diner meal in Holland), we took tagine. 1 vegetable and 1 lamb. The food was very good quality. Friendly waiters. Would recommend this place.

We were looking for somewhere to eat, out of the heat and the bustle of the square when we came across Villa Medina. Although you are likely to see tajines on every menu in Marrakesh, none came close to the delicious food offered here. The lamb tajine and chicken with lemon tajines were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented by the lovely waiters. The cucumbers in yoghurt, couscous and bread were all freshly made. The breeze on this roof top was very welcome and watching the sun set and the market streets change was just lovely.
We would highly recommend the food, the venue and the staff for the excellent experience.

We loved this place. We were alerted by the nice guy handing out flyers outside and we went up to the terrace to enjoy a drink and tagine! He shouted "Good service please!" to the waitress when he saw us coming the second time... I know he probably does it all the time, but it made us giggle!

Prices are very reasonable for its location. Nice views over the medina.

The lady who served us was really nice and friendly and the food was delicious! Would definitely go back if I could!!!
