Very touristy and over priced for what is in beautiful surroundings. Watch out for paying on credit card if you go as 5 times my card declined and then they took me a lone female down to a cash machine - saying there was another machine downstairs! I was stood over until I got the cash! Very dodgy and had... More

If you want to see a touristy show with dancing this is the place... They have a simple show with 2 acts and a live local musician playing. The place is really nice, great old building with lots of character... The food was ok and not anything memorable... Nothing amazing or special to note... If you want a dinner show... More

We went here in Jan 2014 for our anniversary meal and we could not have chosen better. The wonderful tiled interior is exquisite and we were amazed to discover that this was in the Hitchcock film 'The man who knew too much' with Doris Day. The food was brilliant, the service great and we could order wine or beer with... More

We passed by this hidden gem on the way back to our hotel-the doorway is pretty but tucked away. We made a last minute reservation (with reservations because it was totally off hand) but it was SO WORTH IT. The dining room was beautiful, the waiter had a great sense of humour but the food was honestly out of this... More

Had a delicious meal here, all the while being entertained by a series of musicians and traditional dancers. Fantastic evening out. My suggestion would be to book the day before. The food we had was fantastic but at least half of the menu had to be ordered 24 hours ahead.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We wouldn't have come across it. Down a quiet alley off square then the beautiful doorway. Everything inside so ornate. Staff so attentive. Room so magical with musicians and belly dancing. Food wonderful. We sat where Doris day and James Stewart sat in Hitchcock film man who knew too much. A brilliant end to our... More

Great atmosphere with great food. Their is a great selection of traditional Moroccan food and the waiters are only to helpful to explain what it all is. Whilst having your food you are entertained with music and dance. There is a plaque on the wall which makes reference to a Hitchcock film "The man who knows too much" been filmed... More
