Enjoy an awesome quality meal in a beautiful arab atmosphere. Very exquisite decoration in the middle of a town with remarkable arab heritage. The food is quality and the experience is very recommendable. The pictures of Morocco hanging from the walls make your experience even more special. Recommend moroccan te next to the landscape views.

We had dinner in the patio garden area of this beautiful restaurant. Our dinner started with babaganoush, followed by lamb kebabs and pastel, and then finally mouhalabie and cinnamon ice cream for dessert. All were very good. Some reviews have complained of service - our service was very good. Mosquito alert - Late October evening there were mosquitos in the... More

Lovely long lunch in the garden of this lovely restaurant on a super warm November day. As a veggo living in Spain I'm not often spoilt for choice with menus so was a lovely treat to honestly struggle to choose from so many delicious sounding options. Not cheap compared to many options around Cádiz but wonderful value for such a... More

We visited the restaurant several years ago and thought the location and ambience of the restaurant was just great. We weren't so impressed with the food and so gave it another chance on a recent visit to Vejer. We left with the same impression. The menu sounds great but just doesn't deliver on taste for us. Sorry just not enough... More

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated, has modern amenities and is very clean. Great choice of food at breakfast (included) and fine cuisine a la carte (Moroccan) in the evening, using organic local ingredients. Fairly priced, very nice experience of location and food!

We booked by email for Friday night.... recommended... the look is elegant as you go through the narrow hallway and begin going down the stairs, past the tiny cave alcove to a wonderful reception area looking out over a fairy lit outside garden to be seated by a very...

The restaurant has a very beautiful setting and comfortable location but very bad service. We have been traveling for three weeks in Spain and we have never been served in such an unwelcoming manner. From the moment we've entered we have been given a feeling of unexpected and unwanted guests. The food is very good, but really nothing special therefore... More

Good food, nice garden, but to expensive. You can definitely find better lunch /dinner in the area for half of the price.
