The owner, Arelfadel El Houssaiine, is adorable and wants to make his customers at ease, serving his delightful omelette tagine with Berber love. Good food and excellent view of the gorge area. I felt I was back in Biblical times with the view from our table. Beautiful.

We had lunch in the Restaurant la Petite Gorge after visiting the Todra George. We were welcomed by the owner who speaks English very well. He graciously helped us choose delicious dishes which included fresh vegetables from the garden behind the restaurant.At our request he took pictures of us as we talked with him. We quickly felt as if we... More

We had a wonderful meal at this cafe after visiting Todra Gorge. After 2 weeks in some very nice restaurants of Marrakech, Fez, etc., this was our favorite meal. True "home style" Moroccan cooking, literally with vegetables grown from their garden you could see out the window. The proprietor and his wife were incredibly gracious. We knew from the moment...

Lunch at this restaurant was truly a highlight in our three week tour of Morocco. Nowhere else offered quite the same perfect mix of incredible view, superb food, and attentive service. We sat on the terrace, enjoying the panorama of the oasis below, under comfortably shady vines above. Our little group had been hiking for most of the day so... More

A group of us found this by accident and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner upstairs on the rooftop on a warm June night. The view was spectacular in an area full of amazing vistas and the food was very tasty and prepared quickly. The host was very helpful, polite and attentive and very proud of his establishment. Recommend to anyone wanting... More

The ambiance is lovely and the host is very friendly and attentive. Fixed price- 120 dh. Started with the veg soup. I don't usually like squash, but loved this soup which was a squash/ pumpkin like soup. Then skewers and chx tangine. All very yummy. It was cool on the terrace so we could enjoy the lovely view. Nice stop... More

I'm not sure what else you could want as you travel through Morocco. Okay, sure, the chairs on the covered, shaded deck with the extraordinary view are plastic chairs...but that's hardly a knock against the place. It's casual -- great for families and groups. The view is the kind that you might associate with something more upscale but the informality... More

A very pleasant spot to stop on your way to/from the Todras Gorges. The staff is polite, speaks English/French, and is very quick. The food is great and there's minimal fuss. Very pleasant experience all around.

The view from the terrace is lovely! Price is ok and food is good. The staff is polite (but they are polite everywhere in Morocco) and speaks many languages, the service is a bit slow but worth the waiting. We liked it very much!
