Denk je aan authentiek Marokkaans eten, dan denk je aan Mamouche. Dit sfeervolle restaurant, dat wat wegheeft van een Franse bistro met een Marokkaanse twist, zit alweer zo’n twintig jaar in de Pijp en serveert traditionele Marokkaanse lekkernijen zoals couscous, tajine met lamsvlees en meer van dat soort heerlijkheden. Hun kracht? De consistentie van het eten. De gerechten smaken altijd hetzelfde, of je nou vandaag, morgen of over twee weken komt eten. Ze maken zoveel mogelijk zelf, zoals de merguez worstjes. Deze lamsworstjes maken ze zelf bij de slager met hun eigen signature kruidenmengsel. Om de beste kruiden te bemachtigen gaat eigenaar Nizar zo’n vijf tot zes keer per jaar naar zijn hometown Casablanca. ‘De kruiden zijn daar zoveel intenser en aromatischer. Wil ik gemberpoeder, dan wordt het ter plekke geroosterd en voor mijn neus gemalen.’ Weet hij me te vertellen. Vanwege de romantische sfeer is Mamouche een geweldige plek voor een romantisch diner voor twee, maar ook voor minder romantische gelegenheden is dit een must try spot.

    I usually go to Mozo, which is my favorite, but they were full so I decided to try Mamouche cause I saw many good reviews also. Staff was incredibly nice, compliments! The food was okay, meat was soft but I missed the intensity of the tagine flavours which was really ashame. Absolutely can't say the food is bad, but also I wouldn't reccomend it either because I know better places in the neighbourhood like Mozo.

    Fine Moroccan cuisine, tasty, well prepared and refined. The Moroccan white wines were surprisingly rather good. A nice atmosphere in the restaurant.

    It is a nice restaurant with good service but the quality of the food is not outstanding. We were disappointed by the food, also considering the high price. I would not particularly recommend it.

    Great in every way. The food was exceptional., the chef’s surprise menu is worth it (although dessert is a little disappointing). We will be back.
