El Mansour is a well known Moroccan restaurant that has been in business for the last 38 years. We offer traditional Moroccan food. It is very important to us to serve homemade high quality ingredients. We make our own bread, sauces and phillo dough on a daily basis. El Mansour is more than a culinary experience, it is also a trip to Morocco. Decorated with the authentic Moroccan decors, everything was imported from Morocco indeed. We also offer entertainment from Tuesday to Sunday. At El Mansour you will be our guest for a night, you will enjoy our tasty food, great ambiance and caring service.
Wow! My husband and I decided to give this place a try despite my reluctance to try Moroccan food....It was terrific! A 5 course meal was served and the food was delicious!--especially the lentil soup (which I don't usually like).
The atmosphere was very unique with fabrics draping the walls and ceiling. There is bench seating all along the perimeter of the place with lots of pillows and cushions. Our server was dressed in Moroccan garb and was very good.
We did not use any silverwear but we survived!
The belly dancer was stunning and she performed for the small crowd that was there.
It was truly a great experience. It would be a fun place to go on a date or in a large group:)
Great dining experience: El Mansour is a Morrocan restaurant in the Richmond district of SF. The inside of the restaurant is decorated very nicely and makes you feel like you are actually in a foreign country. All of the tables are set to the sides with the center reserved for foot traffic and the belly dancing.
The menu lets you pick between their entrees (couscous, chicken or lamb) or their specialties. We had the prawns and scallops (very good) and the chicken and lamb specialty. Soup, salad, dessert and mint tea comes with the dinner.
Dinner is served with out any utensils (except a fork for the dessert). It took me a little bit before I got comfortable eating with my hands but it was all part of the experience.
I'm really glad we tried this restaurant and I highly recommend it.
It was really fun dining experience. How many times do you get to sit around like sultans and eat fine food with your bare hands? :-) Per my wife who has been to Morocco, food was very authentic and fancy. Very delicious. Belly dancing was bit weird at first, but was fun when everyone got into it. I'd love to go back with a bigger group.
We first entered and the decor was lovely. We were seated promptly, with the service just as orderly. We ordered our food and it came in a timely fashion. The soup and salad was amazing. The appetizer was delicious and everything arrived perfectly warm and appealing. The food itself was great--very juicy and flavorful. After all the bread and other food before the main course, I was a little full.
It's pretty pricey--about $30 per person--but the food and the entertainment made it worth it. I had a great time and enjoyed the hand-washing and the pleasant smell of the mint tea. It was sweetened just right. Overall, the experience was fantastic. We all had fun and enjoyed the mood in the atmosphere.
This restaurant is beautiful, outside and in. You enter through an elaborately carved wooden door, and inside you find rich drapery and colorful light fixtures.
During the meal you get the full treatment, from the ritual handwashing to the gracious service. The meals are prix fixe, with salad, appetizer and dessert included with your choice of entree. I had the almond chicken, which was tender and absolutely delicious.
This is a popular place to bring groups. I saw two birthday parties when I was there.
What makes this a festive night out of course, is the belly dancing. Just an all around great night out. I can't wait to bring my family here when they visit.
Pros: Gorgeous interior, delicious food, dancing!
Cons: A little far off the beaten track
LOVED IT. Food was unique and tasted incredible. Service was excellent and informative. Want to impress someone? This is the place. Your guests will never forget this place. CONS: location, way out in outer Richmond, seating can be a bit cramped (you need to see it to understand). Must be secure enough to eat without utensils.
I'm a student in Ucsf. I'm from Morocco. Somebody told me about El mansour. I went there last Sunday. I really tought i was transported back to my native country. The food was so authentic I felt comfort like I was with my own family. If you want to try Moroccan food that is like back home then try El mansour. It is great. Everytime i'm feeling home sick, El mansour would be the place for me.
my dad was in the Moroccan embassy for 4 years in Morocco. i loved the food of that country that it was hard leaving it. i recently moved to San Francisco and some friends highly recommended El mansour. The food is as authentic as in the best homes in Morocco. I'm so happy i found this place.
