My husband said it wasn't far from our riad (translated as around a mile and a half). Because I'm as realistic as he is I wore new, ridiculous, painful shoes. We got lost several times and probably walked an extra mile. It was unseasonably warm, pitch black and the uncertainty of where we were (in a seemingly residential area) added to the fun. From the outside we thought, "Really?" Upon entering, we were the only people there (shortly before 8:00 PM). The first impulse was to turn and run but you don't stay married for 40 years if you don't have an open mind. The space very well designed - bright, modern, attractively lit and comfortable. Not much English is spoken but the owner/manager was welcoming and our server was very personable and we managed to order our meal. It was just great. The wine was great. The music was fabulous. By 9:00 pm people were arriving en masse, largely French, local and regulars. By the time we left it was practically a party. Our meals were really delicious and in retrospect we wished we had gone back later in the week! Not your typical Marrakech restaurant and absolutely wonderful!
