Fodor's Expert Review Al Fassia Guéliz

$$ Gueliz and Hivernage Moroccan Fodor's Choice

Serving some of the best à la carte Moroccan food in the city and also with an extensive choice of Moroccan wines, Al Fassia has a long-standing reputation for high-quality traditional food without the obligation to participate in a five-course gastronomic feast. Run by women, it brings classic cooking to Guéliz with an affordable menu that includes tasty tagines, tender brochettes with saffron rice, couscous topped with caramelized onions, succulent tangia, and sweet-savory pigeon pastilla. The Guéliz restaurant can be noisy and crowded with slow service if there are large party bookings. One of the only restaurants in Marrakesh with a no smoking policy, it also serves alcohol. The owners have opened a second restaurant, Al Fassia Aguedal, a few kilometers out of town, to cope with demand.
