“Best Place in Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A dinner from the Thousand and One Nights in one of the oldest riyad (16th century) in the old town. Beautifoul atmosphere and traditional music.

“Speical setting - calm in centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We have visited this restaurant several times over the years - but returned with friends.
The Riad setting is wonderful - try and ask for table by the pool. From the manic atmosphere
of the square - you head off a side street and then a dark alley - but then surprise wonderful
you enter the Riad, its beauty and calm.
The menu is set 4 or 5 smallish courses which are delicious - and the only criticism I would have is that maybe they need to offer a shorter 1 or 2 course menu
with vegetarian option for those not feeling like the whole menu
(for instance if someone is feeling not so good). A simple couple of options cheaper than full menu.
Service is excellent and Atmosphere special.

“Like you entered a another worled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The restaurant is very nice with a great atmosphere like a door opened on another world. you could never imagine that there is a nice restaurant in such a Derb ( very small street in Arabic ). Take a table outside so u can enjoy the sound of the water from the small fountain. Prior reservation is a must . Quality of food is very good although the portions are not big but it was enough for me .

“Excellent food and service, beautiful restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Loved this restaurant. The food was excellent. We are both vegetarian and had the vegetarian set dinner which we pre-booked. Very tasty soup and bread to start, sweet rice and vegetable pastries, vegetable tagine, desert, mint tea etc. The setting was lovely and service was friendly and helfpul. We had no problem finding the restaurant so that was a bonus. Really enjoyed our evening here.

“Great food, great service, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was my favourite of the 4 restaurants we ate in - just south of the main square in the medina the riad itself is beautiful, but the meal was great too. They have a set tasting menu, so to make sure you make the most of this go with an empty tummy. The various courses were ample without being excessive. The price was reasonable given the good quality, wine was also good and reasonably priced and service was excellent. An excellent all round experience.
