From the moment my friend and I entered the restaurant we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. It wasn't busy and we hadn't booked, but from reviews I'd read, I doubt this was the reason. He brought samples of wine to help choose which one to have. We didnt have to wait very long for the food... More

Tripadvisor comes up trumps again. Great little restaurant. Very friendly owner who made us feel at home as soon as we walked through the door. Food was just what was required. Chocolate tart was a big favourite. Wine was good and the whole thing was well priced. One I would recommend.

Small, friendly restaurant. Good french food. Helpful with matching wine. Great for kids too, meals are made suitable for children. The owners will serve you (unless it's very busy I imagine) and makes the experience feel personal. It was very hard for us to find just a decent meal in Marrakech (I have no idea what people are on about... More

My husband and I walked to this small restaurant from our hotel as we needed a break from a traditional Moroccan dinner. Both our dinners and the wine suggested to us were excellent. (my husband had duck and I had pasta) A big bonus for us was that no one was smoking. I am not sure if it is not... More

We stumbled onto this little hidden gem, looking for somewhere to enjoy a coctail and beer, in the afternoon. The French owners are very friendly and helpful. We booked for dinner for the next evening. The food was fantastic! We shared Brewates (Moroccan type samosas) for starters. I ordered a pasta and my husband had fillet steak with a cognac... More

The restaurant is small and friendly, on the evening we visited it was quiet with not much atmosphere. The food was ok, not great. It's ideal for a quiet and simple meal. There are a lot of rave reviews about this place which is a little surprising.

My husband and I were recently in Marrakesh and had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant...twice! On recommendations of other trip advisor members, we ate at this restaurant the first night we were in Marrakesh. Great advice! The pasta was homemade and delicious and the chicken dish we had was equally as good. The best part for us, though,... More
