Le Tobsil, Medina, Marrakesh

Concierge.com's insider take:
In typical Marrakesh fashion, the food at Le Tobsil just keeps on coming, course after course after course. But far from being a test of endurance, the experience is more like unwrapping presents at Christmas: You can't wait to see what's next. Aperitifs (included in the price, as is the wine) are followed by a swarm of vegetarian meze dishes, a flaky pastilla, a tajine, and a couscous dish. Finally, there is fruit accompanied by cakes or pastries and tea or coffee. The setting is equally rich: a gorgeous old house deep in the Medina where guests are seated on two levels around a courtyard and entertained by gnawa musicians playing a trance-inducing Moroccan form of blues. Though not as dazzling as the famous Dar Yacout, for an intimate Moroccan dining experience this is a better and somewhat less expensive bet.
Open Wednesdays through Mondays 8 am to 11 pm.
