Traveled for a month in Europe with a family of 5 (adult kids), who are extremely fussy with food. This was by far the best restaurant we ate at during our summer vacation. Excellent food, great service and atmosphere. Well worth the trip and penny!

My boyfriend and I visited Chefchouen for about 2 hours on our way from Fes to Tangier. We decided at the end of our tour of the city, we should grab a bite to eat, but needed it to-go because of timing. We stumbled into Tissemel and saw most tables had a pot of delicious looking stewy meat and sauce.... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Chefhaouen. On the first occasion, our Moroccan salad was below average, but was compensated by the main course of chicken brochettes and roasted vegetables which were fresh and tasty. We decided to go back and give it a second chance, but this time it really was disappointing. My chicken was undercooked and... More

This quaint restaurant is tastefully decorated in the local style and the set menu (80mad) had lots of options. We also got complimentary bread and olives. I ordered the chicken tagine with lemon and it was awesome. The kofta skewers were good too. Portion sizes were good for me to eat it all without feeling like I had over eaten.... More

Travelling to Morocco means that you have to open your mind to different culture. This place was one of the oasis that we found to eat. Prices are correct The lamb tajine, the dish. We recommend it.

Not the most flavoursome meal but OK for tourists wanting a meat tagine. Beef tagine was better than the chicken. The cream caramel and lemon tart for dessert was very good.

There is a set menu (80 dh) but you can just take a main (60 dh), which I did. I asked for the chicken tajine with lemon, but they didn't have that anymore so I toke the normal chicken tajine. Then it arrived way too quickly, meaning it had been on the fire all along already. Consequently, as expected, the... More

After reading carefully other TA recommendations, I ordered the harira (very good) and lemon chicken tagine. The combination of olives, preserved lemons, and tomato sauce were too strong for me, but I lightened it up with some of my husband's couscous. My husband really enjoyed his sweet chicken couscous. The lemon tart was great and he was quite happy with... More
