Welcome To Al Fassia

Creating lasting memories since 1987

We are proud to say that since our opening in ’87 we have been providing our guests with the finest in refined Moroccan hospitality.

Our story began with a Moroccan Restaurant in Gueliz, the city center of Marrakech- the original idea for this restaurant came from Mohammed Chab (our Father, a professional hotelier) and our late Mother, Fatima Chab who worked hard to create the concept and to train the women in the kitchen. The concept of our restaurant was that of solely employing female staff, this was a first at the time and was considered groundbreaking for this part of the world.

The Hotel

Al FassiaAguedal is a 27 bedroom boutique hotel. Set within manicured gardens, you will find all the facilities of a large hotel, but with all the charm, attention to detail and inviting hospitality of a small, family run riad.

"Plush cushions and warm-hued walls create a cozy atmosphere. But the real reason to visit this place is for its superb traditional Moroccan dishes."


"It’s run entirely by women, but you won’t just get a hit of girl power at this Marrakech favourite. It offers a cosy, exotic atmosphere, and the authentic Moroccan cuisine is pretty good, too. Just make sure you book ahead – this place gets busy."


"Al Fassia, the all-woman high-octane restaurant: order the Moroccan salad starter and be transported!"

The Irish Times

"Al Fassia is one of the leading lights of the Marrakech dining scene. It’s not just the richly-hued dining room with its cushion-strewn baquettes and heavy white table cloths that sets it apart, but the Chaab sisters Fassi heritage which brings a touch of culinary refinement to many traditional dishes."

The Telegraph

"ll s’impose depuis vingt-cinq ans comme la référence. Ce petit restaurant de Guiliz met à l’honneur la ville: salades, soupe traditionnelle, tajines, couscous, pastilla de pigeon, kebab… Aux fourneaux comme en salle, seules les femmes sont aux commandes."

Paris Match

"Al Fassia, the unmissable address of Moroccan gastronomy!"


"We chose to have lunch at Al Fassia, a restaurant that began life more than 30 years ago as a women’s co-operative and is today considered one of the finest places to eat in the city."

The Independent

"There are few really exciting restaurants in Marrakesh perhaps with the exception of al-Fassia, a restaurant run entirely by women."
