Gold drapes and chandeliers adorn this opulent 19th-century riad. The menu is a fixed-priced feast of dishes such as flaky lobster pastilla with coriander jus and melon couscous with thyme honey. The salons can feel stuffy in summer, so ask for a table in the courtyard, where Gnaoua musicians serenade diners under the banana fronds. Reservations essential.
