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

We were in 4 and had 2 starters babaghanush and Briwat queso then we shared the tahin kefta (tasty meatballs) Cuscus marinero (seafood couscous just delicious) and Cordero (lamb with a sweet sauce) We had to wait...

This place is a little difficult to find, but well worth going to! The food is amazing and a great departure from your standard Spanish fare. The staff is always very nice, and the service is excellent. Be aware that there is no alcohol served, but there is a great ginger drink that I recommend trying! I have been here... More

We came to this Arab / Moroccan restaurant for my birthday and we had a fantastic set meal which consisted of humos, salad, chicken dishes, noodle courses, small dessert and tea. We thoroughly enjoyed the flavours of the dishes and the variety of textures. The staff were quick and attentive and the place is really beautifully decorated. I would recommend... More

I feel like I can never eat in a Moroccan/ Middle Eastern place again because after the experience at this restaurant, none can ever top it. We had a menu for 20 euros per person that included soup to nuts and then some more. Then I realized that falafel was not in this deal so wouldn't you know that when... More
