Absolutely perfect dinner! The food (lamb) was delicious and the staff is the best in Morocco! Ambiente is wonderful, you wouldn't expect such a place in this area.

The food was ordered prior to arrival. We all had tagine which was wonderful. The service was impeccable and the local beers and wine weren't bad either.
