One day per week a holiday experience! Philippe runs this beautiful place with class. The service is very ok, very personal. Every time eating here is a pleasure.

One of the best places to eat in Tangier. It is a quality restaurant with panoramic views of the beach, chill-out music and excellent service. Highly recommended to enjoy great food in a unique atmosphere

Excellent food in a lovely location on the beach, served by the best waiters I have so far encountered in Morocco anywhere. Really exceptionally good.

We go here all the time as we live in Tangiers part of the year, wonderful reception from Philippe the owner and a peaceful place to contemplate the ocean and enjoy some good food, a little pricey but worth it. Careful only open lunchtimes
