Like being in paradise

This is a very special restaurant, small and family run, very atmospheric, the food is divine and the staff make you feel as if you are their own guests for a while. I particularly recommend the sweet potato chips.

I have been to this restaurant several times and each time I like it more. They serve mediterranean food and sort of middle eastern as well. Honsetly one of the best cousins around .. if you are around check it out definitely worth it!

Went there with family and ordered two chicken dishes which were very bland even though it was suppose to be spicy. Service was nonexistent. Going elsewhere.

Very friendly family run eatery with mostly mediterranean food. Note that it does not have an alcohol licence. Only a few tables, but very efficient and a nice atmosphere. Very helpful staff.

One of Caslebar's hidden gems. Unfortunately if you don't know about this place you could easily miss out on a great treat. Authentic north african cuisine, great service and a lovely atmosphere
