Very pleasant evening at this lovely restaurant in beautiful historic building. Seating is in the courtyard on low, but comfortable chairs. Music, lanterns and a pool of rose petals set a romantic scene. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Food fresh and full of flavour....More

Must be the most beautiful restaurant we`ve ever been to; the central atrium in a very old and carefully restored Riad. Perfect service and the Lamb tagine was maybe the best we`ve tasted in Marrakech (and we`ve tasted a few....). I had the taster menu...More

Loved it. Service was great, food excellent, but mostly it's very authentic with a magical Moroccan feeling to it. Nice and quiet to, I would definitely recommend it. Only thing I missed was vegies with the meat dish, otherwise great.More

Description
Situated in the very heart of the souks, this building is a hidden secret, only found by the discerning and curious visitor, where history is recorded in the delicate tracery of the stucco and skilfully carved wood. In the year 2000 , Marrakech Riads, a leading player in the restoration of the riads of Marrakech, brought Dar Cherifa back to life, and simultaneously unveiled a hidden treasure of the medina, the refined decor of this building recalling that of the Medersa Ben Youssef, jewel of the Saadian era (16th century) and one of the finest monuments of Marrakech. Renovated with the greatest care and attention to detail, with the participation of renowned craftsmen so as to maintain its authenticity and splendour, Dar Cherifa welcomes all visitors eager to meet new and interesting people. It is a real cultural venue, hosting regular exhibitions, workshops, concerts and events. This inimitable space draws one into a meditative state of mind and heart. Everyone fortunate enough to visit this building says that they breathe an atmosphere of peace and serenity the minute they cross the threshold. The mention of Moroccan culture immediately implies Moroccan cuisine, and what more beguiling setting than this pure and refined interior for sampling a cuisine abounding in cultural exchange; a subtle blend of sweet and sour, the inheritance of Berber, Jewish and Arab-Andalucian influences. Enjoy!
