We started with a rice dish with egglpant and carrots, then we had kebabs or turkey and beef with the most delicious peas with ras el hanout EVER. Then we had medfouna- YUM. They are kind and gentle people and the food is just superb.

Excellent single set menu (no choice, no questions asked) of rice salad, 'Berber pizza' (bread top and bottom, allsorts inside - not vegetarian), fruit for after and a bottle of water, for 2 people (and possibly our guide) 160 dh. Highly recommended, visit if you're in the area

This place has two special dishes: a very tasty warm rice salad followed by a Pizza stuffed with a flavorful mix of vegetables; somehow the two dishes work together. The restaurant is a ways outside Merzouga (7 KM) in a little town of displaced Africans which also features their (Gnoua) music; after your meal walk a short ways to take... More

We came here for lunch to try the berber pizza, and we loved every single bite of it. The Moroccan salad that came before the pizza was very fresh and tasty. Our guide had the good idea to place the order before we got there so we did not have to wait too long. After lunch, Hassan, the owner, sat... More

Our guide took us here to try the berber pizza, and it was delicious. This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere, so I wouldn't suggest TA readers go out of their way to eat here, but if you're in Merzouga, it's definitely worth a visit. There were four of us sharing one "pizza" (filled with vegetables and prepared with... More

We have randomly stopped for a coffee, but when the food started rolling by, we could not resist but to order ourselfs a snack. We had berber "pizza", and it was delicious. Afterwards when other guests have cleared out, the owner had a chat with us. He was very friendly, and explained how he got to where he is now,... More

If you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you. If you can wait for absolutely delicious home cooked food, then this is your place. We had a fabulous dinner of local cuisine that was unique and prepared beautifully. It is a small place outside of Merzouga and you need to take a cab/driver to get there.... More

After eating an array of Tagines, it was a delight to have lunch at Restaurant Café Nora. Loved the "Berber Pizza" in a relaxed atmosphere. Clean and quick service. Pleasant buzz of conversation from folk from all over the world. The prices were a delight, for the first time on our Morocco trip did not feel "stung". Definitely worth a... More
