We chose to come here after reading such good reviews on Tripadvisor along with our love of Moroccan food. There were several things that slightly disappointed us about this place. Firstly, the owner is the cook, waitress, host, dishwasher etc. etc. which is fine, but does mean service is rather slow to the point where there is a huge gap... More

I recently came here with my boyfriend on a trip to Lisbon and happened to walk past this gem. The decor is lovely and cosy and rabeeha the host, chef and just about everything was so welcoming and friendly. I felt like I had pop round to a friends house for dinner. The Harira soup was the best outside of... More

Excellent home style Moroccan cooking. If you are vegetarian, try the Couscous. This is the place for you in Lisbon. The owner/chef/server takes great pride in the cooking and service and is there to help you find the right food to match your tastes and desires. Very warm and relaxing experience, highly recommended. Reserve in advance !

If you ever go to Lisbon, make a reservation here. Its a small place, run by an amazing owner whose cooking is...something else. If she wrote a cookbook I'd be in line... Everything we tasted was amazing - wish I could eat here everyday!! The tagines were great, the varieties of couscous was amazing, everything cooked to perfection. And she... More

The food here is just mouthwateringly delicious. I have never tasted better tagines or couscous. The spicy courgette (zucchini) tagine was INCREDIBLE. And it went perfectly with the cinnamon-spiced couscous. We had mostly vegetarian food, and I have never tasted veggies more flavorful. Even the spinach was perfection, spiced with lemon. Even for you meat eaters - I would recommend... More

Went there after a long day in the city. The place is small and all the tables were booked, but the owner is so nice that found a way to squeeze us in. The owner name is Rosinha, was born in Casablanca and has more than 20 years living in Lisbon. The food is just amazing. She will prepare it... More

This was agreat find. Very authentic Morroccan food. Generous portions. We had the tagine of lame, lemon chicken and spicy prawns. All very well presented and delicious. This is a restaurant to take your time in. Friendly owner who is happy to chat in between doing all the front of house stuff. Definitely recommend a visit.

I absolutely agree with the positive reviews. The negative one doesn't sound like this restaurant at all. I made reservations for 2 and we were seated in a wonderful corner banquette on super-comfortable cushions. The owner chef brought out delicious small bites, took our orders and what came out of her kitchen was all amazing. We had a great time... More

The owner was a bit like a carpet merchant from the Souk. Lots of bla bla bla, but the food wasn't part of her dialogue. Very average and pricey, so I won't be going back. In addition, the owner locked the restaurant door, mid-meal, and made us watch her belly dancing buddy. It was more than I could handle that... More
