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

I think this is the best Moroccan restaurant I have ever visited. You need to wait a little for your order, but I think this is because they prepare it fresh. I visited it twice and the food was always great. The staff is really nice and interior is well decorated.

Had dinner there with family. Even though our waiter was very nice and the place looks very good, the food was just average. Chicken was dry, harissa was probably just some Asian chilly sauce, fish tajine was average. I would have loved to give it a better rating since I love Moroccan food but this is not the best.

I've eaten here 4 times now and every time has been excellent. The atmosphere was great, the waiter was friendly and attentive, lots of variety on the menu, the food looked, smelled and tasted wonderful and it was great value for money - we got the three courses for 20 euro (7 days a week) option, and weren't disappointed. Highly... More

We had visited Dublin last year and happened on this Moroccan restaurant in the heart of the city and were truly amazed at its authenticity. The owner is a friendly and well-informed Moroccan who's been in business here in Dublin for fourteen years. It's no surprise why as the food is tasty, fresh and well-prepared. We had emailed him well... More

I got the chicken tagine and though the chicken was very moist, tasty and tender the portions were tiny! For the price we paid we deserved a generous filling portion. I was hoping the vegetables would be more exotic with zucchini or aubergines but they were carrots and parsnips insteads. Having said that the food was very tasty and staff... More
