“Copious portions, great food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

When it comes to restaurants, food is the most important thing to me. The food at this restaurant is very good (not as good as Al Fassia, but still excellent). The morroccan salads (in particular the tomate confits) were delicious.

You have the option of choosing between three fixed menus (varying in size and price) which include an aperitif and a half bottle of wine per person.

The atmosphere and locale is very charming, welcoming and laid-back. Upon your arrival, you are offered a tour of the house in which it is located. The restaurant was purchased and renovated by a french owner in the late 80s. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and sincere. The waiter who has worked there for 14 years was more than happy to answer my mother's million and one questions about the menu, the ingredients, morroccan culture, arabic, the restaurant etc. I highly recommend going to this restaurant.

“Nice small Moroccan restaurant in the Medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Nice small Moroccan restaurant in the Medina with a romantic atmosphere. The quality of food is not as good as in Al Fassia, but the service, with the dedicated attention of the director, Othman, and the beauty of the riad, contributed to the success of our evening there.
In addition the bill was very reasonable.
