My family and I stopped here for lunch on the first day of ramadan, no problems getting food! Beautiful terrace with lovely view. the food was good, but bait overpriced for the portions (tiny salad). Wi-fi too! the host/owner was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!

We stopped here after a visit to the Todra Gorge. The owner was very welcoming and wanted to make us feel like we were at home. The food was excellent. Veggies where picked from the garden out back. His wife cooked an incredible meal. Probably the best we had during our stay in Morocco. Be sure to stop in after... More

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.

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
