As shown very well in the first video, directed byMarc d'Haenen, this establishment, considered the best of its kind in Agadir and the region, invites us to a real party. The particular character of Chems Ayour lies in the presentation of both Arabic and Berber acts.


You become aware of this unique feature as soon as you step outside the building. Visitors are welcomed there by riders and then, inside, by the very smiling staff of the establishment. Quite impressive, but friendly, the ceremony takes you through several ceremonial rooms, before you are greeted by folk groups, including that of pleasant Berber dancers.


A few surprises follow around the tafernout oven and harmless snakes, before entering the caidal tents.


Three menus to choose from

















Three different menus download by clicking on the image above are offered to individual visitors. The first two include a couscous with seven vegetables as a main course and the third a mechoui of lamb. They are all three generous. Better not to have eaten at noon. Price: 400 dirhams, or €40. Very decent wine list.  


The numbers follow one another in the caidal tents, between the dishes: singers, dancers, acrobats expressing the two cultures. Don't hesitate to respond to their invitation and take part in the celebration yourself! Fire eaters, acrobats and fantasia finale, outdoors.


Inauguration and comparison


Broadcast by the Moroccan channel 2M, the second video looks back on the inauguration of 2007 and on the courageous initiative of the founder, Meryem El Ouafi. As for the last video, it makes it possible to make the comparison with the famous dinner-show of the same type Chez Ali in Marrakech, much larger in size, but without the character that gives all its originality to Chems Ayour: the mixture of the two cultures that make up Morocco today .


 Wednesday and Friday are reserved for individual spectators. Reservation essential on 0528 319 797

Three out of three hearts for Chems Ayour, its originality and the quality of its dishes

Another dinner show: La Folie Berbère

Berber madness, in Agadir, offers a show of the same type as that of Chems Ayour, in an architectural setting that is less authentic and less polished.
