I would recommend this restaurant for visitors who are not greatly experienced in Moroccan food. The food is simple, classic and good. The ambiance is quiet and restrained and thankfully does not have the theatre and razzmatazz that some of its competitors 'boast'. The French only menu could be better explained, some English guests were complaining about the price but... More

This restaurant is amazing! It's tricky to find it but luckily a man from the restaurant was waiting for us and guided us! The place is an old private home and everything feels so authentic! We hade the gastronomic menu which was around 500 dirham, then you got an 8 course menu with cocktails, wine and water and it was... More

We were a little apprehensive as we approached the road leading to the restaurant, but when we were met by the concierge our adventure commenced. What an incredible experience. From the moment our concierge "knocked on the door" we were blown away. Mystical ambiance, Great service, Wonderful Traditional food.... Wow what a great dining experience...

This was a great recommendation and a real discovery. You are greeted as a guest in a palatial home with all the courtesies and traditions of a former bygone era. You are invited to look round the beautiful building before having your hands washed in rose water and sitting down. All the chairs around the tables face into the central... More

We were recommended by our Riad owner who told us to find the man down the end of the road wearing a red cape ?.. We eventually found him and followed him down a series of twisting, narrow alleys, We began to think 'what's going on ?'.. until eventually red cape man knocks on a big wooden door. The door... More

Great place. It is hard to find; it was only a couple of hundred metres from our riad so we thought we'd be fine, but it was still a bit of a struggle. It's a large, plain wooden door with a small metal plaque on the right; look for that! There are 3 set menus, and the smallest has more... More

Great place. Great staff who really takes care of you. Went there with my girlfriend had the "small" menu at 350,-, this includes an aperitif (had a Jim Beam and a Kir) water and 1/2 a bottle decent wine pp, but had NO chance eating it all. This is actually very good value. Huge starter, more like meze with 8... More

Recommended this restaurant by our riad. The interior is stunning and worth getting lost a few times trying to find it! Truly authentic cuisine with a choice of set menus, be warned though the servings are large, so petit diner at 350dh is more than enough, especially as wine and drinks are included too. Service is attentive, highly recommend.
