My advice to you is to sit on the terrace during sunset time. Enjoy your dinner by the nile from the terrace, and then u can have some moroccan tea in the outdoor area. The food, hmmmm...I suggest you go for the appetizers hot n cold, soup, as well as the salads they are all really delicious. We loved them.... More
