Great little restaurant with a wide selection of authentic Moroccan dishes. Restaurant itself is small and feels authentically Moroccan. They even have a belly dancer for entertainment during the weekends. Highly recommend.

Very cosy, petite local in the heart of Dublin, we must have walked past it hundreds of times. The staff are super friendly and the food was very nice. There seems to be some exotic live dancing going on, at least there was the Friday evening we were there. We will return.

El Bahia was a charming spot in the tourist area of Grafton Street. The restaurant was above some shopping and was like entering a different time. We were greeted immediately upon arrival. We had made a reservation for a larger group earlier and were offered a private room. Some members of our group had bailed on dinner, so we didn't need it and sat in the small dining room. This is not a place to go for privacy, but there was plenty of room for our 6 top. The food was delicious and had pretty sizable portions. We all ordered various tangines and they were steaming hot. I had the lentils as a starter and they were FANTASTIC. The guys in my group ordered beer and their first round was flat, but they didn't care enough to ask for new drinks. There was one gentleman working on the entire room of tables, so we had to wait for service through some of the dinner, but that wasn't unusual for eating out anywhere in Europe, even in a tourist region of Dublin. The food was worth the visit, especially if you want to experience something less traditionally Irish.

The restaurant was quaint and very authentic and the food was just lovely with beautiful Morroccan flavours. The service was excellent and I had no complaints whatsoever. Really enjoyed the evening. The House Wine was really nice and the waiter was very attentive. Would definitely recommend.

Booked a table at late notice. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. Felt like I was in Morocco which is mad because I've never been. Great spot!

The service was great but the food was awful. I came to this place through open table after looking for a Moroccan restaurant in Dublin. I had previously eaten at Dada with a friend but could not recall the name. The staff were very friendly but the food was very average.

What a hidden gem! We love Moroccan food. Living on New Orleans there is none. When we were in Dublin, I stumbled upon this restaurant here on Open Table. I am so glad I did!

The restaurant is small and very unassuming. It was also empty at 8:00 which did cause some concern. The minute we were greeted by our server, the young Youssef, as he called himself, all of our concerns were for naught. HE was over the top. Friendly, helpful and most important a great server.

The food was absolutely top notch. We opted for the three full meal with a bottle of wince that was ridiculously inexpensive. I think for both of us, a starter, entree, dessert and wine, the check came to $81 euros with tip!

The Chicken Basitilla and Tangine were second to none. From start to finish, a truly fantastic meal in a wonderful place. Thank you Youssef for making this a fantastic night!
