We are a family run authentic moroccan bistro on the wells road between totter down and knowle. Established 10 years ago we operate on a B.Y.O basis allowing the customer to bring the tipple of their choice. We use traditional moroccan recipes from tagines to meshwi and relax in the moroccan bedouin seating or the more traditional bistro seating. We can cater for large groups and belly dancing can be arranged. So come and enjoy a taste of morocco in Bristol. AS WITH ALL TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN RECIPES TAGINES DO TAKE A WHILE TO COOK SO WE WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED FAST FOOD

Great service and relaxed atmosphere. The bistro was quite busy on the evening we went which meant a short wait for our food but it was worth it. Totally Delish! Will be going back for sure. Really fun night with friends. Highly recommended.

Had a really enjoyable evening here with family celebrating a wedding anniversary. The restaurant feels very authentic Moroccan in both the decor and the food. We all enjoyed starters and mains, really could not fault it, so tasty, as were the desserts. We took advantage of it being BYO bottle so had our own wine to accompany the meal. Found... More

This was our first visit but certainly won't be the last. From the minute we walked through the door we could tell we were going to have a good night. We were warmly welcomed, our booked table was ready and we were given just the right of time to make our choices. When it arrived the food was excellent. Two... More

I ate here last night and it was top quality. The atmosphere is warm and homely and the owner is a very kind woman who even gave us an unexpected student discount! BYOB is always a bonus as well, with a co-op just down the road in case you forget to take your drink.

My brother took my husband and I to Assilah for dinner. He had heard the food was good. As soon as we walked in we were made to feel welcome. The lady serving us was lovely and friendly. A large party came in just after us, our waitress made sure to take our order first so we didn't have to... More

I don't normally get excited to eat out until it comes to Assilah, it is my all time favorite place and if you haven't visited you are missing out. See you Friday Assilah!
