Grilling dishes on glowing embers was at the base of all cookery, and is an art our Chef Mohammed has mastered perfectly. Here on the second floor of the Riad Zahra with an ocean view Mediterranean cuisine is to the fore. Paëllas, lobster or prawns, sea fish, shellfish, meat ... At the heart of our cuisine are the superb natural products, which give out all their savours under the embers' influence, sharing their aromas with the grills and the products cooked on them. Jofre will help you choose dishes that are just right for you and will help you choose wines to match them. There's also a wide range of wines for you to enjoy.

A little back from the promenade this place is worth the treck out of the medina. Leave it until you cannot bear the site of another tagine and then head here for some really fresh simply cooked food. It is back from the coast but we'll sign posted if you are looking, you head down an alley into a residential... More

Tucked away at the top of a delightful Riad set back just 100 m from the beach. Delightful owners and a really friendly little treasure at the top of the building. Turtles in the swimming pool as well

We wanted a decent place to have some lovely fish. This was a good choice. It was quiet when we were there but the service was great and the food was lovely. Pre-drinks at ocean vagabond on the beach just around the corner were perfect too!

How this establishment achieved it's high ratings is a mystery to us. One waiter serving thirty covers is stupid. He was very pleasant but out of depth. We arrived having booked for eight o, clock. Greeted by hotel owner and taken upstairs to the restaurant. Seated we sat and sat and sat. Eventually we received menus and a drink. The... More
