I love Moroccan and Mediterranean food, so I try all the Moroccan restaurants I can find. No other Moroccan restaurant in the SF Bay Area pulls it off like El Mansour. The full dinner is an experience you won't forget (or regret), even though it's a little pricier than other meals ($36-$38/person). The inside is a big tent covered with rugs. They begin with big silver urns for washing hands, then bring on course after course that is delicious. The chicken Bastilla (chicken pie in filo dough--appetizer) is the best I have tasted. The lamb and rabbit entrees are delicious. No silverware, but you get a towel. Tea is poured from a great height with fried banana dessert, concluding the drama of the meal. Nice wines are available to go with the meal. We make reservations for holidays and always enjoy the entertaining meal, as well as a belly dancer. I've been going there for 30+ years and still go back!
If you want a true family dining experience, this is your place! The food is great and it the restaurant takes you back as if you were in Morocco. There is some dancing and you may get chosen to do a little dancing. This is worth a trip if you're getting tired of hotel restaurants, etc.
get the Moroccan seafood entree.
What a unique cultural experience! Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and though there were families and groups, it didn't take away the romantic and cozy ambiance. The staff was welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious with a capital D. The belly dancing was an added bonus to what was already an amazing dining experience. A bit pricey but well worth it!
Best Moroccan food around! I come here every year for my birthday and I live in LA. So worth it! My heart leaps for the lentil soup!
The food is wonderful.. Belly dancer on Sat. nite. The waiters were attentive, however the music is loud
Great place for a party. Entertainment and good food!
Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday happy birthday, happy birthday to you- cha cha cha!
