“Beautiful courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We ate a group menu that wasn't all that good but the surroundings made up for it. Stunning courtyard with orange trees and fountains. Lovely decoration inside the restaurant it self as well.

“Maybe the most beautiful building I've ever seen?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This gorgeously decorated riad has been transformed into a fine dining experience. We came in as a large group package, so no idea on prices. Dinner was a delicious pastilla and tagine, had musicians we enjoyed, and then belly dancers who got the patrons up and dancing with them. Fun evening.

“Tourist and clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Nice idea and very pleasant staff and service it's a shame the food was sub par. Gi for the ambience and a drink but don't waste your money on the food.

“Totally overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere is very nice but the food is TOTALLY Overpriced.
I should have looked at the reviews on trip advisors before.

“Tourist trap/piège à touristes!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

What a tourist trap! It is very big resto with a nice garden outside and a big dining hall inside. We entered by mistake because we did not know it serves mostly package tour groups. The groups come in and out and like a train station. They arrive, get loaded with the same food, and then escorted out and the next group is seated. The groups seemed quite happy about it! For private diners this is a terrible place, the staff are not interested and the food is just little plates of cheap tasteless stuff. But the prices!!!! are in the highest of Morocco!!!
