This is one of the most authentic Moroccan place I have found in Valencia. The Non alcoholic drinks are delicious. We tried the Mojito-ish and red wine style drinks that came with the Menu we ordered. The Menu included more than 10 courses and each was one was better than the previous. Menus are priced at €20, €25 and €30... More

A very ornately decorated restaurant to make the experience of eating authentic arabic food all the better. A good choice of taster menus and all the food is delicious, although the desserts were a little too sweet for our taste. Have been twice and will definitely be going back again!

We asked for the degustation menu, it was all alright and the quantity was OK. We liked the decoration and the music was even better. The service was kind.

The restaurant was empty (only two tables occupied) and we had full atention of the staff. It looks like family-run business and everyone is very polite, with warm welcome. We decided for the menu Kalifa and had many arabic dishes served. They were all very tasteful, including orange and lime juice. This menu is quite demanding task for ordinary eater... More
