    " Extremely accommodating, friendly and a fantastic atmosphere for a meal for two or a gathering of friends. Not my first visit .... and definitely won't be my last! The food is delicious, from the starters right through to the baklava, which is partnered beautifully by mint tea served in a traditional pot. "

    What a lovely restaurant and fantastic evening!

    This is an ace spot and I wish we'd discovered it before. The decor is lovely, the atmosphere is sweet and the staff were great too.

    There could have, perhaps, been some side-dishes on the menu too - I would have liked a veg option to go with the gorgeous tagine, or some yogurt dip to go with the spicy sardines - but the food was really, really good!

    BYO is such a great idea and really helps, budget-wise. We'll certainly be back.

    tastecard makes this a (hate to say it) sensible evening out that feels special at the same time.

    Thank you!

  • "After reading the previous review, my wife and I decided to experience the Assilah for ourselves. Wow talk about stepping out of the box, Can you remember Mr Ben the kids TV series! Well for me it felt as though I had just stepped through the changing room, I don’t know how authentic this place is I have nether been to morocco or eaten Moroccan food before. Great place The restaurant has traditional Moroccan seating on one side with low tables and seats. The other side offers a more traditional English seating arrangement. My wife and I decided on the English side as she is suffering a sore knee. The whole place is decorated in a foreign style and along with the traditional Moroccan music being played it created a fantastic atmosphere! The food was great and again I assume traditional. I had a sardine starter nice amount it came with salad and the wife had Falafel, I had the Poussin and my wife had the lamb tagine. We both enjoyed all that we ate and loved the Moroccan flavours. I could not eat all I was served and regretted eating bread and olives at the start of our meal. The woman that greeted us on our arrival was very welcoming, and after presenting the restaurant to us she allowed us to choose our seating preference. She made sure we were comfortable and attended to our needs without being intrusive throughout the evening. Its BYO drink so we took a bottle of white wine that we picked up in the off licence on the way. Great way to keep the costs down! I and the wife had a fantastic time we left with full bellies and a promise to ourselves to go back! After the Tastecard Discount The whole night including the meal a tip our own £5 bottle of wine came to a Total of £25. Highly recommended, we are going back this week with our son and his girlfriend! John "

  • "Went to Assilah last week with some friends who were also tastecard holders.  I just cannot recommend it highly enough. The service was warm and friendly.  Food was excellent. I would particularly recommend the sardine starter and the whole poussin main - certainly one of, if not the, best chicken I've ever tasted - moist, succulent and extremely tasty. Also, my companions loved the mixed baklava dessert - 2 portions easily enough for 3 people to share. With it being BYO you have even more scope to keep costs down - but, to be frank, it'd easily be worth it at full price! Yvette   "
