Considering this restaurant says it specialises in seafood no smoked salmon, squid,prawns or fresh salmon available on the day of our visit. Service exceptionally unfriendly. We knew before we went this restaurant didn't serve alcohol however they could only offer water, or tea. No fresh juices on offer. All in all a very disappointing experience. Would not recommend anyone to... More

The menu is not vast but my fish tagine was very tasty and my starter of smoked salmon covered a large plate The surrioundings are quite splendid but the service was not very friendly compared to the usual standard in Morocco and as it wasn't very busy...

Decoration is quite OK and had a quiet atmosphere. The menu was short but the food was very tasteful - we tried the fish couscous and tajin, and several appetizers.

Food was fine but limited in choice. The ambiance was great and service was good. Nice wines and beer.

Service was acceptable but the standard and quality of the food was less than poor. We were the only ones in the restaurant. After having warm white wine and poor food the staff were then unable to process our credit cards. The owner offered to take us to a cash machine, which we declined. We left what cash we had... More

When the owner blames his staff for the mediocre food and service, something is definitely wrong. We were there for New Year's Eve. It was one of the relatively cheaper places to go on a traditionally expensive night out... and we later understood why. Maybe they were overwhelmed, maybe they were not used to dealing with so many party-goers at... More

Having been to Dar Yacout the night before and had an exceptional evening, I guess wherever we went after, it might seem a little inferior. Walking into the building was very impressive, as mosts riads are. My first issue was having being sat down, noticing bird droppings on the table !! not best happy. I ordered wine, they didn't have,... More

We arrived a bit early but the personnel was very accommodating. The restaurant is lovely, with big mirrors and lots of decoration. The razor fish (clams) dish was great, and the fish tagine- spectacular. It was our last meal in Morocco, and one of the best! Walking back to Riad Zitoune was a small adventure.
