Good food but worryingly empty.

I enjoyed a terrific L'Olivier couscous, in a very accessible, friendly and well-appointed restaurant. What concerned me was that I was the only customer (on a Tuesday) and the restaurant was empty also when I passed the following evening. Food this good deserves more takers.

While I thoroughly enjoyed our meal, personally I would... More

I was about to walk past this place when I decided to stop in for lunch. This is a small, atmospheric restaurant that serves Berber food. I ordered the Mutton Couscous, and it was out of this world!
