A gem of a restaurant!

My husband is strict vegetarian and we looked forward to dining here. What a wonderful, tucked away quirky gem of a find! Everything beautifully and freshly prepared with flavours that excelled!

You have to hunt this small restaurant-cafe out, down a small street near the ramparts. But worth it, whether you are a veggie or not. Went with my wife for a 3pm lunch - a plat de jour was on offer- veggie or fish. We went veggie - very tasty! Cost was 150DR in total for two. About £10. Can't... More

Firstly the location. Not difficult to find, but off the main streets. Great, because that means everyone going here has chosen it, and probably read the reviews, and knows what to expect. Then the decor. Who says that a restaurant has be formulaic, tables and chairs nicely arranged? Here, every table and set of chairs is different, distributed around the... More

Amazing vegetarian restaurant (with fish sometimes available), the food was so tasty, fresh and healthy. I'm a meat lover and my wife is vegetarian but I loved it just as much as she did, one of the best meals we've had and for a great price too!

Great little restaurant with a simple but delicious menu. Quaint interior (expect very low seats) We had a gorgeous little mezzanine all to ourselves, very cosy. Staff were incredibly friendly. Really lovely experience.

We fell in love with this place and had 4 dinners here during our stay. Beautiful quirky place, really great individual style. All the food was really well thought out. We loved every meal we had and there was no token dish, they were all fantastic. I loved the bread too which was on non stop supply so I was... More

We visited this place as recommended by the owner of our Riad. And this was the best recommendation that we are glad we took! The place is hidden in a small cobbled street next to the medina's wall, very intimate from outside. Inside, once you step in, you are entering another world. The decor, the details, the atmosphere, the busy... More

This cosy restaurant with some sunken rooms makes for great atmosphere. The food is delicious catering to all tastes and especially vegetarian dishes! Friendly waitress looked after us very well and this restaurant was recommended for westerners with regard to good clean food and drinks. It is situated in the medina and so it's not far to head down into... More
