No a big fan of Morrocan food but this place is very good. The Tagines are really tasty and the staff very efficient. Have back a number of times with various people and always gets a positive response

my irish friends insisted that i try this one out... when i entered the restaurant i was impressed by the arabic-Moroccan music and the attention paid to decor and styling of the atmosphere... we ordered the zaalouk starter which was diced aubergines with spices and a garlic base served with a side of pita bread it was satisfying and flavourful....

I can't believe I have never actually submitted a review for this place. I have visited here many many times in recent years with friends, family and even organised an office Christmas party here. Anyone who I have ever taken here has loved the place and most have subsequently gone back. Having spent a fair bit of time in Morocco,... More

Tried to use a Living Social Voucher here. The first time, my friend was running late by 10 minutes, we rang two hours ahead to give them a heads-up and we were told we could no longer have our table. This woman was unapologetically rude, giving us one word answers. I eat out in Dublin regularly, at least once a... More

Our very large group ended up at El Bahia when a restaurant with which we had reservations could not accommodate us. They immediately installed us in an "attic" room to ourselves, with pillows and low tables, and offered us a prix fixe menu that kept the wine and appetizers flowing. I was able to sample three different lamb dishes, so... More

Marvelous food at the right price, you will not be ripped off here. Staff numbers are low so you may have to wait a little, but its worth it.

What a nice little find! Food is great, service high standard and good value for money. Ambience also quite authentic. I recommend the lamb tagine or the chicken Bastille. I have been here before and will be back again soon.

I had a voucher to spent at this Restaurant and was a really great experience! I went there with my husband for the "early bird" (because of the voucher) and the service was amazing! Me and my husband were advised by a waiter call Henrique and he really understood what we like! The restaurant is small and I suggest that... More

I was brought here as a surprise as I am travelling to Morocco during the summer and it was absolutely gorgeous. I had the soup for starters which although not roasting hot when served, was perfect as the spices added heat to it. I had a chicken dish for the main course with seasonal veg and the infusion of the... More
