Le Tanjia is a long established restaurant just five minutes from Dar Habiba, South of the  main square in the direction of the Jewish quarter, the Mellah.

It is named after a classic Moroccan Lamb dish the Tanjia but the real signature dish is another slow cooked Marrakechi Lamb speciality ‘Mechoui’ where the whole lamb is cooked (traditionally undergound) for many hours.

On most evening there are belly dancers to add to the fun. Service can sometimes be a little slow but that leaves all the more time to enjoy the wonderful interior or the stunning views from the West facing roof terrace- a perfect place from which to watch the sun go down.

Tip for cooler evenings, the roof terrace is much more enclosed and consequently warmer than that of the nearby ‘Kosy bar’ which is another excellent Marrakech eatery.

Stay with us in one of our traditional Riads in Marrakech and experience an ancient way of living in many ways untouched for centuries.

Le Comptoir also known as Le Comptoir Darna is a legendary Marrakech venue, located in the Rue Ahmed Chaqui in the heart of the buzzing Hivernage district West of the Old town Medina.  Dependable up market dining with an excellent show usually comprising drummers and dancers who perform in a variety of classical and cabaret styles. Upstairs is a bar with music and dancing until the early hours.

Le Comptoir is a favourite recommendation for a group looking to celebrate a special occasion. Your Marrakech Riad can help you reserve a great table, we can even arrange for a horse and carriage to collect you from the Riad to take you on an unforgetable night time tour of old Marrakech ending at the restaurant just in time for for dinner.
