We are a family of 5, but 3 young kids. We wanted to do something different on the night as the hustle of Jemma El Fna was too much for us as a young family. This was a great choice and we only found out about it from baedekers guide book. It's certainly tucked away but everything from the cloaked... More

We sort out the restaurant by day but there was no need as when we arrived outside the maze of alleys that lead to the restaurant, there was a "greeter" who guide us. The atmosphere was pleasant and the tables were set around to central courtyard. The service was professional and attentive. Wine was reasonably priced and the menu was... More

It certainly isn't easy to find. We walked past the little lane to it twice but we were so pleased we persevered. It's a lovely setting. We were encouraged to look around the house which was lovely with a great open roof which you could walk round and see the rest of the medina from. The food was a set... More

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
