Excellent choice for dinner

I had a very pleasant dinner here with colleagues last week. The service was very friendly - my colleague wanted to try couscous but since it was not Friday couscous was not on the menu. No problem, the owner brought him a small portion of couscous to go with his tagine - a very thoughtful... read more

I would go back to Rabat to eat the best souris d'agneau in the world. Strangely it is the only dish whose taste I believe I can describe even today. This never, ever happened to me before! When we walked in, the restaurant was deserted and I thought the fountain on the wall was a strange setting that only induced... More

Great atmosphere, friendly service - no English but accommodating with an English version of the menu and willing to make recommendations in Spanish or French. Went there in a group of four for a late lunch (1:30pm) and the food was excellent: we went there to sample some local Moroccan cuisine and were very happy with several delicious choices we... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Rabat, in my opinion. The atmosphere and decor are wonderful. The servers are really kind and attentive, and the food is really good. I get pretty tired of the same old things [tajine, couscous &c...], and so it's nice to have just a hint of Moroccan seasoning, but to be able to... More

Went several times to the restaurant during my stay at Le Diwan in Rabat. Food was delicious and the owner was extremely attentive and the service was great. The restaurant is cozy and intimate and it lends itself to a quiet dinner with friends. We actually had dinner next to some representatives from Disney who always visit the restaurant when... More

I can't believe I got tricked into eating here. I am moroccan and the only good moroccan restaurant in Rabat is Dinarjat. This place is awful and overpriced. The service is however nice. I think it's getting a lot of good reviews by the same network of tourists who are clueless about good moroccan good. I also found the place... More

The restaurant is very nice inside and very easy to spot especially if you stay at the Le Diwan Hotel since it's very few meters far from it. The food was very good especially the fish. The location is very nice, moroccan style. Definitely suggested to whoever wishes to give a try to the typical moroccan food without risking to... More

I don't want to give a negative impression: my dinner here was very good! Large choice of entrées, including typical Moroccan salads, which I enjoyed very much. I had lamb tajine and some skewers of grilled lamb. Typical Moroccan desserts. Everything was good, but I don't remember of being impressed by the general experience. I need to come back once...

My sister tried out this restaurant because of all the great reviews and it did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious food and excellent service. I tried the lamb tangine and it was extremely tender and flavorful. My sister ordered the chicken with olives and lemons. Both were delicious, but I prefer the lamb. The servers were very attentive and we loved... More

I'm a little disconcerted that our dining experience at La Menora is so widely different from the other reviewers. We were the only diners during our entire meal which is in itself a telling sign that doesn't bode well on the culinary front, but we figured that it was mid-week and low tourist season. But our concerns were justified: my... More
