Welcome to AL FASSIA

Since our opening in 1987, we have been making sure to offer our clients the best of Moroccan Hospitality.

Our story began with a Moroccan restaurant in Guéliz, downtown Marrakech – the original idea for this restaurant came from Mohammed Chab (our father, a professional hotelier) and our late mother, Fatima Chab who joined the idea to launch the concept of employing only women and training them in both cooking and service. 30 years ago it was a first in Morocco!

Staying at AL FASSIA is...

Making every customer feel at home is more than just a promise, it’s our motto.

It was therefore natural to maintain this tradition by bringing the intimacy, warmth and family atmosphere that a riad can offer.

Each of our mosaics has been shaped and sculpted by hand. Each of the plants in our lush garden has been carefully selected. Al Fassia is a riad where authenticity meets harmony with the sole aim of subduing your spirit.


For more than 30 years, AL FASSIA in Marrakech has been a reference in the Moroccan culinary scene.

Our restaurant AL FASSIA Aguedal invites you every evening for a dinner outside in the freshness of our gardens or inside in one of the Moroccan lounges.

AL FASSIA Guéliz opens its doors for lunch and dinner in complete privacy in the heart of Marrakech.


You don’t need a special reason to take care of your body and relax…

Let the soft warmth of our marbled hammam envelop you to recharge your batteries.

To each his own massage:
Relaxing, invigorating or Berber.


Cleanliness and hygiene have always been a central concern for our establishment. The health crisis we have gone through has made it necessary to reinforce the rules of hygiene as well as the introduction of new precautions.
In order to protect its customers and staff, our establishment is committed to…

For a relaxing stay, come and enjoy our refurbished Hammam and our newly heated infinity swimming pool.



"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."
