“One of the few places for a couscous in Geneva”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Simple restaurant for simple Moroccan food. The decoration is basic and they should put less lighting in this small place to make it look a bit bigger. Prices are correct too for Geneva.

“Gem of place on an otherwise empty Sunday in Geneva”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Geneva seems to entirely shut down on a Sunday and looking for a warm meal with 5 friends we found a place that was open. Waiting for the usual shock of Swiss menu prices the lady serving us told us about a menu complet which was only CHF28 (I was just about getting used to paying in the region of CHF50 per meal) so it seemed pretty good for what she mentioned as "couscous, veg and meats". Since mains hovered at the CHF25 area we all went for the set menu.
To start was a nice meaty broth followed by a never-ending stream of individual bowls of slow cooked lamb, marinated raisins, pumpkin, carrots, chicken thighs, herby sausages, little balls of beef. Dessert was a little meagre with sliced oranges sprinkled with cinnamon, I was expecting a sweet pastry delight.
Thankfully we weren't in a rush to get anywhere else as it took well over 3 hours from sitting down to paying as she was looking after about 6 other tables on her own.
