“Unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

On a recent trip to this beautiful city, we visited a number of restaurants. We didn't know Koutoubiya was a Moroccan restaurant, as we wanted to eat Belgian food. But is was an unexpected pleasure, the whole meal was great, service was friendly and the outside seating was magnificent. Price was a little high for this kind of food, all the rest was magnificent.

“An excellent lunch for less than 20€”

First a hot soup, than 3 fresh sardines with couscous and round it all up with a mint thee. It all looked very authentic to me i.e. honest cuisine.
