Excellent food. Good service. Some entertainment (very good magician) without being invasive and bothering. And another plus: there is alcohol. Definitely a place I'd suggest.

Lovely restaurant, really good wine and sangria; amazing service where they more than accommodated the vegetarian even though it was a set meal which hasn't included any vegetarian options. set meal because of new years eve, food was really different, french cooking with a morocco twist. The fresh sea food was incredible, not sure we liked the way it tasted... More

This restaurant is run by a French lady who visited Morocco years ago and just never left. She has a very eclectic menu, mostly Moroccan with a French twist and everything that arrived at our table was excellent. It is a small-ish restaurant, so you may need reservations in the busy season. When we were there, the place was full... More

This restaurant is run by two sisters who cook traditional Moroccan dishes as their mother cooked as well as French cuisine. This means that you get the most tasty meals as everyone knows that home cooking in Morocco is the best. The family come from Essaouira and also own the pattisserie stall nearby. There is a good selection of wines... More

We had an amazing experience. The food was very tasty and the entertainment second to none. A band was playing local music to covers. The waiter was enjoying dancing, singing and getting others up to dance. And they have a good selection of alcoholic drinks :-)

Good atmosphere and plenty of food, ten salad starter was a great chance to try everything, steaks and sea bass good, lovely bread and tapenade while waiting. Slightly tricky to find but worth it when we did

Beautiful setting great food and live music. It wasn't even a hot day and the evening was cool enough for a jacket but it was hot and steamy inside. I loved my dinner (bass) and my friend had a tasty tajine. The drink of the evening was a lime vodka thing that was a work of art I'd go back... More

Fun, helpful staff. Reasonably priced wine. Great authentic Moroccan food and delicious deserts! The live music and fun waiter who entertained guests all night was well worth the visit. Not far from the square near Taros bar. Worth a visit.
