Delicious Traditional Cuisine with Modern Touch

I enjoyed delicious dishes although the food and cuisine are traditional, there was a modern presentation. Warm and cozy atmosphere with WIFI facility! Enjoyed Dinner very much.

We stayed overnight at this riad and ate a dinner and a breakfast there. The menu offered a nice selection of dishes. The food we ordered was most delicious and exquisitely presented. The courtyard/atrium where meals are served is absolutely charming in its traditional Moroccan decor. We would love to visit this riad and restaurant again some day.

We only ate one meal, breakfast, but it was superb, from a delicious soup to yogurt, rolls, eggs, and all kinds of dried fruits, honeys, nuts and jams. The best!

I was seated in the middle of the communal courtyard, and was left waiting for over 20 minutes to be served, despite me being only one of three guests. There was one waiter serving everyone and he did not speak very much english and could not understand me. Asking for the drinks menu I was told there was no menu,... More

Wonderful place, good service and presentation, but too expansive compared to the quality of the food I've eaten... 40 euros it's too much for a dinner in rabat

We had our dinner in the riad just once. The moroccan salad was the best we had, perfectly spiced. I had already ordered my Fish Filet Moroccan Style in the afternoon to make sure to get fish. But that was really a disappointment. A Fish Tajine!!!! Completely fallen apart and very dry. What a shame. The waiter was very little... More

Our hotel booked this for us and arranged a taxi to take us to the medina gate where we were met by a man in traditional dress carrying a lantern who led us to the restaurant.

Having ordered 24 hours in advance we enjoyed wonderful slow cooked lamb tagine preceded by a selection of salads and followed by a delightful dessert. Lovely courtyard location and attentive smiling service.

We were staying already at this riad so decided to have dinner there. The system was a set of salads for starter, then choice of main and finally a house dessert for a fixed price. The food was good and unlike our experience with the standard riad staff the service was quite good. The waiter was helpful, when not watching... More
