Ayoush - Marylebone


The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Fantastically fun and buzzy Moroccan restaurant and bar. Newly refurbished to a high standard in summer 2013, the charming restaurant looks out to an al fresco dining area, where Ayoush's renowned shisha and Moroccan tea are expertly served.

Downstairs there are wonderfully decorated 'caves', perfect for group dining and private hire. This area has a wonderfully smart, modern Moroccan look and an intimate Club/bar atmosphere including belly dancers and late night DJ at the weekends. One thing not to be missed are the unique cocktails made exclusively here.

The food is recognisably of the region (tagines, mezze, couscous) with a seasonally changing menu that includes some interesting twists on Moroccan flavours. No matter what the weather in London, Ayoush promises a traditional North African warm welcome and friendly service, making it a favourite haunt of celebrities, Londoners and tourists alike.

Visited this restaurant after a break of a year and it's totally different - and amazing! The decor is wonderful - bright and fresh version of Moroccan. The menu is also smaller and more interesting and the new chef worked his wonders on my tastebuds! I had melt in your mouth calamari, a lamb tagine that fell off the bone and homemade baclava which was the best I've ever tasted. Washed down by a couple of rather marvellous mojitos. The staff were friendly and efficient and the place was buzzing especially outside. We couldn't get a table for shisha it was that busy. So well done Ayoush, there's something very cool going on here and can't wait to go back hopefully with a group as the downstairs "caves" looked like a lot of fun for the evening.
