Mama Fatima was a wonderful host. All of her food creations were authentic and the flavors burst in your mouth! The food was freshly made for every meal and prepared with the freshest ingredients.

It is already a mission to find the restaurant, which is not easy at all. Be sure that you come one hour in advance and not too hungry. You will be waiting at least 3 quarters of an hour, especially if there are more people. It is better to come in couples and order one main dish, which costs 220-300... More

Me and my friends are very surprised how this restaurant can be ranked 2nd on tripadvisor. The restaurant locates just across the street of our hotel because it was convenient and we were in a hurry so we went there. We decided to eat in the terrace for the view but obviously the restaurant was not very active in reponding... More

The site of this place alone deserves a 5/5. Then on top of that you get 5 star service and incredible food. Cannot recommend highly enough

I chose this riad for the tile work on the photos (which were stunning in person as well) but my favorite part ended up being the food. Fatima, the chef did a great job! So delicious. We also got to try local beers from Morocco which is rare in a Muslim country!

The owner of the restaurant was really nice and the service was good. The price is a little high but I think it's better than other morrocan restaurants in marakech and fes for its service and enjoyableexperience. I like the soup and the salad very much!

As we read so many positive reviews about Rcif, we were very curious and reserved a table for 2. We were welcomed in the evening and got a table on the terrace. Absolutely nothing is less true than all the positive reviews. First the of all, the view is beautifull especially with the sunset. The people are very friendly and... More
