My wife and I had been there a few time, a few years ago but it was the first time for my son and his family. It was their first experience with moroccan cuisine and they enjoyed it. My grand-daughter is vegan and was able to find something to her taste. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was... More

We hadn't been to The Kasbah for many years, so decided to pay a return visit. In keeping with our past experiences, the food was very good, the recommendations were excellent and service warm, friendly and attentive. The soup was thick and spicey, the appetizers (a combination plate great for sharing) were excellent and the couscous filled with tender lamb,... More

Went with a group from the office. The menu was quite limited and uninspiring but the food was passable. What really had the entire office talking afterwards was the odd behaviour of the staff who I assume were the owner and his son. Both of them kept forgetting orders and/or details of the orders and when you followed up with... More

We came on account of the groupon. Was quite busy for a frigid Saturday night. In addition to the items featured in the groupon (a great soup, delicious tagine and formal tea service) we ordered some merguez and the warm olive salad. Salad was great. The merguez did not come wrapped in pastry as per the menu, and once we... More

I would give it 0/5 stars if I had the option to be honest. I never write a review but these people don't deserve to be there and really need to reevaluate how they treat their customers and their prices. A very small yogurt sized soup (with no meat) being 8$????It was literally just broth (it looked like they were... More

Received a groupon as a gift to eat an evening meal at Kasbah Village.The decor was nice the seats a little hard. It was a groupon for four people but we were only 3, still it was the same price even we got only 3 meals. As the waiter/owner said that's the deal and he said usually people order an... More

We literally walked 500 ft from the Alt Hotel into the welcoming arms of Kasbah Village, who adeptly brought back memories of our trip to Marrakech many years ago. Just before we arrived at the front door, our noses got a quick tease from the exhaust from the kitchen fan, simply ethereal! The place was full, and we were promptly... More

We have been loyal customers for years, because of the food, the ambiance and the owners. Better than the food we had in most restaurants in Morocco, because it is homemade...Try a tagine: all of them are amazing !

Went by again for a date night with my husband after buying a Groupon. We started with Moroccon soup with chickpeas, then shared an appetizer platter, and we each had our own Couscous Royal platter. The Couscous Royal is served with chicken pieces, lamb or mutton, merguez sausage and chicken sausage with some vegetables. It was very tasty, and the... More
