“Great bar with a colonial touch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We enjoyed a few drinks here in the late afternoon. The place is a nice oasis from the busy world outside. The drinks weren't fantastic, but the buffet of appetizers were.

“stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

this is my fave place to hang out like a colonial idiot! beautifully designed interiors reminiscent of a grand cafe in paris, but with fantastic rugs and things everywhere. The menu is quite modern and the cooking is excellent, if you like razor clams try them here as the broth they come served in is sooooo saucy. Staff are very lovely too. It is a wee bit pricey but if you are going to treat yourself try here, great wine list and....apres dejeuner follow the staircase up to the lovely cocktail lounge kitted out in my fantasy house style, rugs, leather, wood, mirrors, screens and cocktails! Always some light jazz funk/soul in th eback ground, you can happily while away a ew hours of conversation here and slowly walk back to the medina (about twenty mins) It is very central 1 minute from mac donalds/zara on mohammed v. If its hot, they have really good a/c with fab water jet sprays, i know, i am easily pleased!

“Grand decor, nice food and ok service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Followed Top 10 guide places for lunch to find this place (btw, wrong address on the top 10 detachable map!).

Really nice decor and atmosphere...taking this into consideration, food isn't European price (~£10 for a main course). I ordered skewed monkfish with curry sauce and rice. Food is just ok tasty...monkfish isn't as sweet as expected and curry is more like cream... Service was a bit slow, so perfect to chill out for longer to soak up the grandeur! :)

“Great people watching.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Had lunch here on the porch ( you can sit outside on the sidewalk, but they cannot serve liquor there ) and spent 2 hours enjoying our food ( sardine appetizer served in a mason jar with oil and cheese was superb, also Salade d' Aubergines and Assiette de Fromages) and wine. The staff was friendly ( and spoke English ) and the service efficient.
