Best meal of our whole trip!!

The woman who runs this gem of a restaurant also is the chef, hostess, server and dishwasher. She is clearly passionate and proud of the place. Decor, music and ambience are amazing and truly transport you. Food was authentic, all completely from scratch and delicious. Service was great- felt like... read more

Excellent food and atmosphere, run by an eccentric, vibrant one woman show. Truly fabulous in every way. The lamb tagine is to die for.

Weird experience. Mild reprisal for being ten minutes late. Excellent starters. Talkative waiter/owner with strong opinions on a number of issues.Main course was fantastic, but came without vegetables or rice/couscous/potatos. We all were happy to leave in time to have coffee and dessert at home.

What a fantastic place. Run by an amazing woman who cooks, serves and nurses her customers in a degree I have never experienced before and she does everything by her self. Don't miss out this gem of a restaurant if you ever visit Lisboa because the food is created with respect and love for the Morrocan kitchen. Remember to book... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. It is a one woman show and we very much enjoyed our hummus followed by the shrimp tagine and the lamb tagine with prunes and almonds. I would order exactly the same thing again. Wonderfully flavourful and tasty - brilliant and just what we wanted. Only lament is that we had no room for dessert.

We went here because of a guidebook recommendation. It is a cosy, 'authentic' place, but we were not so impressed with food. We ordered 2 dishes from the vegetarian selection (couscous & tagine). Both were fine but nothing to write home about. When perusing the menu outside, we had got the impression that several little side dishes would be included... More

Took some time to review this one. I didn't eat badly, but maybe I was comparing too much with my holidays in Morroco, and then it's not so good. Ambience very nice, we didn't had the belly dancer, but I probably appreciated as the music was sometimes loud enough. The owner, she's doing an amazing job as has been said... More

Great food, amazing hostess, memorable setting. Cannot fault our experience. If you love quality, authentic Moroccan food then you won't be disappointed. Be patient (this is a one woman show) and you shall have your reward. And have the Shrimp Tagine. It's incredible.

Our taste buds where totally exploding with mmmmm and wowwwww and not wanting the food to end, perfectly cooked Lamb with Prunes and Almonds the meat melted in my mouth, with the endless accompaniments we were...
