So much food!

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday in February and were the only persons there. We ordered a soup, salad, tagine and dessert. When the salad came there were 11 dishes which were very tasty if overwhelming. The chicken tagine was also large. It was a very good value meal in a nice location.

Having read the reviews, we booked a table and arrived to find we had the place all to ourselves. (Booking is important though, as they cook to order). So we found ourselves sitting in the best seats in this amazing, traditional place, being waited on by the family who,own the place and cook the food. As others have said, any... More

A very special dinner in a very special surroundings. In this haven you are away from the chaos of the streets outside and get a little taste of hidden taraudant. The food was exquisite and as others have mentioned... Extensive! Way way too much food which is a shame to waste so go here when you are very hungry. Also... More

Real Moroccan food with excellent flavors in a nice Riad patio! Try the saffron chicken and the definitely eat the salads before. I'll be back here one day!

Stepping into this riad is like discovering a little gem. A very authentic, family-run piece of beauty and quiet. Don't miss out on the kitchen: "the misses" must be one of the best chefs to prepare truly original Morrocan food. All delightfully spiced, brilliantly prepared and served with an overdose of generosity. What an unforgettable experience that was! The only... More

Riad itself was gorgeous. Table and overall ambience lovely. Food?..well, the starter soup was very nice, the ten veg dishes all cold and basic were smothered with a tonne of coriander, the main tagine undercooked with a funky smell making me wretch. Dessert I left as it was pathetic and just drank the rose wine I asked for instead. They... More

The food was very good. But it was a huge amount. It felt like we had ordered 3 main courses. The atmosphere was very nice and cosy. It is also possible to get beers.

This place is excellent The food is Moroccan (like all the other restaurants here) and it's one of the great cuisines What makes it special is the quality of the vegetable dishes. The proprietor calls them salads, but maybe vegetable mezes would mean more to anyone who has been around the middle east. If you have been to Ottolenghi in... More

We had lunch here upon the recommendation of our Riad owner. It was a maze trying to find this locale but once there it was a beautiful and quiet Riad. The dining area is in the main courtyard decorated with beautiful arabesque tiles and amidst a garden. I ordered soup and my companion had a main dish. The cucumber soup... More

The food is really very, very good, and the place itself is very nice, in a nice small courtroom with colourful tiles and plants. We had a set menu, with about 10 different starters, chicken couscous, lamb tagine and a traditional dessert with tea and coffe. And the portions are huge. As other have stated, don't be put off by... More
