Just Ok

Nice setting in the restaurant with Moroccan specialties, but nothing really more. We ordered Harira and Meatball tajine. The harira was tasty, but the tajine was not what we expected, the meat too cooked, not enough sauce. Service ok. Try it if you want to sit in a oriental setting but without... read more

Surprised to see the reviews. We had great, friendly service and an great meal. We started with roasted eggplant with tomato sauce and spices and a side of bread. The eggplant had good flavor with the tomato and spices providing a nice balance. The lamb tajin with plums and almonds was tender, flavorful and delicious, one of the best moroccon... More

Looks nice from outside. Beguiling Moroccan look. Welcoming lighting. Food was 100pc tasteless, dull and visually unappealing. Enough said.

I went here for dinner, the food was ok, the falafels and chicken skewers were quite good but the staff are terrible, they were rude, uncourteous and unhelpful. The bathroom was very dirty and the restaurant was shabby and dirty. I don't reccomend this restaurant

We were pulled in by the Menu del Dia and thought we'd be able to save a few extra euros. At first everything was fine and our food came out fast however the waiter seemed disinterested and rude. Most of the dishes were delicious (the couscous needed more flavour and wasn't as fluffy as it should be), but the surprise... More

The vegetable tagine (main course of menu del dia for 9.50) consisted of several boiled vegetables and was completely tasteless (not even salted). The waiter explained that clients do not like spiced food, although indeed in Moroccan cuisine it should be spiced. The menu did not even include cuscus nor bread. In the men's toilet there was no toilet paper,... More

We were desperate and went in here for lunch, lured by the 9,59 menu del dia. As another review mentioned, this did not include bread, which is necessary for a eggplant spread they served as a first course. Also not included was tea ~ 5,60 for two and Iva. After we ordered I could hear the microwave beeping in the... More

The best couscous in the world!! I broke my No 1 rule, entering an empty restaurant. I was a little apprehensive, thinking why at 14.30 on a saturday is this place empty? Anyway we took the plunge, and ordered chicken couscous, words failed me, this should be renamed, the nearest description i could think of was the Rolls royce of... More

We walked in off the street not knowing what to expect and had a great meal in lovely surroundings. As the previous reviewer said, the lighting was dim and the place was relaxed and very friendly. We weren't sure if it was going to be touristy and overpriced but it was neither of those things. A lovely place to visit... More

Very close to the Plaza Nueva and Alhambra, this place was a great way to end each of our days in Granada. The atmosphere was vibrant yet relaxing at the same time. The seating area is dimly lit, comfortably appointed, and divided into small sections of varying elevation that make it very nice for enjoying the company of friends, family,... More
