My wife and I went for dinner after reading the glowing reviews here. I have no negative points to make and would only like to stress that in the evenings for dinner when there are a selection of main course as opposed to just pizza and pasta, this is still first and foremost a pizza joint for families, so don't...

I went to Le Chat qui Rit last October with a group of 20 people. As a tour leader it isn't always easy to choose a place to go to with a group just based on reviews. I think that I wouldn't have gone to le chat qui rit based on TripAdvisor... Samira set à menu for our group within... More

A pleasant bistro a short walk from the train station. Truly authentic pizza at lunchtime, and excellent Mediterranean dishes for dinner. The gnocchi were some of the best we have had anywhere: light and tender. The chicken with porcini mushrooms is unquestionably one of their finest dishes. The complimentary fresh panini which are placed on the table while you wait... More

As a recommendation from a friend, we sought out this restaurant. It took quite a while for a taxi driver to figure out where we wanted to be and ended up walking ages to get to it but was definitely worth the visit. Yummy food and it didn't disappoint. Would return without hesitation.

We had a good dinner and the service was good. It is often in Morocco that restaurants exploit tourists on prices, and unfortunately they are not different such as charging 30 Dirhams for a small bottle of water.
