Great fun, well priced, good atmosphere. They make a big fuss of birthdays! Our daughter had a great 18th there with the rest of the family.

I went to Marrakech last year and wanted just a taste of it again, so I Googled for a Moroccan restaurant and up popped Tagine it looked amazing inside and the menu looked great! Needless to say when I actually went there last night it was even more amazing lovely traditional back drop, even the look of the door said Morocco! The food was fab I had a fish tagine and my friend a chicken one, I highly recommend both! The atmosphere was lovely and very cosy! 10 stars from me!

We booked a table for 10 for my husbands birthday . The staff were very welcoming when we arrived and they gave us a choice of seats. They were very helpful and pleasant throughout the evening. The food was superb and the portions were substantial. They brought out the birthday cake with a firework in it and gave the birthday boy a Fez! It was a lovely evening and everyone enjoyed their food. Would highly recommend Tagine. Thank you to all the staff for making it such a special evening.

Food was lovely, service was not. On arrival I told the gentleman who greeted us that I'd try to call earlier and that the phone number was not working. I was telling him this as an FYI/favour so that they would not miss out on business because people could not get through. He proceeded to argue with me about it and make me show him the number I used. Seriously did not care, just wanted to help him out. Service for the rest of the night continued to be poor - we ordered water 3 times before we got it. At the end of the meal, the person clearing our plates spilled sauce all over my jeans. I get that things happen as I used to wait tables. The problem was that she did not apologise or even notice what she'd done. I had to point it to her that she spilled on me and she smiled and said oh. Er - very very odd. Regardless the food was very good (although not cheap) and being able to byo was great. Would still return despite the horrendous/rude service.

Excellent as always the consistency and quality of Tagine keeps calling me back. The BYO booze keeps the bill down and the service is excellent . The meze is almost enough on its own, so order less filling main courses. I've never made it to desert but you get damned fine coffee.

Good food, service, and atmosphere. But my wife cooks tastier tagines, and prices were high for a BYOB restaurant but that may reflect the rent the restaurant has to pay for the location. No idea whether corkage is charged on BYOB as we didn't bring any alcohol. I didn't like my cocktail which was far too sweet and tasted like mown grass, and my wife didn't like her creme brulee with figs which was really a creme catalan with figs mixed into the custard rather than having the figs served alongside. Good for parties, and a 20% discount if dining between 5pm and 7pm. Bill included a 12.5% service charge which was unexpected: I'm fine with service charges for large groups but otherwise prefer to choose my own tip, and even then it's higher than the standard 10%. Very nearly a 5 out of 6 but not there based upon our single visit.

Been here countless times. Always great food and service. Chicken pastilla is a must for starters! Any of the Tagines are excellent. Mamounia Tagine is my personal favourite.
