It must be good because the place is always buzzing with locals, most of the younger set. The menu has something... read more

I've been there a couple of times for a drink, I didn't try their food yet but it looked yummy from what I've seen. It's the perfect place to have a business lunch/dinner. Totally recommend it!

A nice to eat in Rabat. It is nit in the center so you need a car or take a taxi to get there. It is on the avenue that leads to the royal Golf of Dar Salem. The food is quite good. Theynserve French and Italian cuisine, and there desserts are very good.

They advertise as having Mediterranean food. It was more French. The food was ok, but nothing to write home about. I had the duck and it was to be cooked medium but it was a little over cooked. The wine selection was good with several Moroccan wines at good prices.

Everything about this place is spot on! The staff were all really nice. The service was amazing. The food was the best that I've had in Morocco. The decor was charming. This is my favorite place in Rabat, hands down!

Really great find - thank you TripAdvisor! Good food, eclectic influences creatively combined. Wonderful garden setting - and I still don't know how they get all the table lights to change colour at the same time!

I went to have a nice dinner with my wife (we were in a fight so I decided to take her someplace special to make up) so we went to picolos. Lets begin with the food. The food was simply divine. I have nothing but absolutely nothing negative to comment about the quality of the food. The ingredients were fresh... More

Charming restaurant with a lovely garden. The food is first rate, the fish, in particular, is always extremely fresh and beautifully cooked. The service is excellent, the staff are friendly and competent. The restaurant serves non stop from midday to 10 or 11 pm. It is undoubtedly my favourite restaurant in Rabat where I go every time I travel there.

Very good service and ambiance. The place is very good decorated and the terrace is adorable. I went in November for dinner and it was already too cool to sit outside, but in the inside is very nice as well. The food is good, they serve salmon and duck amongst other meat, fish and pasta dishes. The bread is fresh... More
