“Excellent seafood at reasonable prices w superb service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This hidden little treasure off of Marrakesh's main thoroughfare in the new city provides an innovative and interesting menu with a variety of seafood options that provided a nice break from tajines. The service was lovely, decor quaint, with a nice outdoor patio, and an amazing grand marnier soufflé. The servers were more than happy to explain the menu in detil, and we definitely felt we got more than we paid for! Very reasonable

“Swanky french bistro!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Super deco and good buzz even though we arrived very late. Somewhat cheeky waiters and enormous scallops... All very good if a little salty... Was dying of thirst the next day... The snails and bouillabaisse were both a little over-seasoned. A good break from Moroccan fare and we were both grateful for the complimentary limoncello to end our meal!

“Wonderful seafood platter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This French restaurant in Gueliz redocorated and changed its menu frover the summer to emphasize seafood over the beef-oriented menu of the past. The food continues to be wonderful, although my friend was disappointed by the "bouillabaise" which contained ample seafood, but little broth soething he had looked forward to on the cold winter night we were there. My fish was perfectly cooked and the fresh seafood platter full of great shellfish.

“Nice seafood lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Decor is light and breezy, as if you are at the beach for lunch. Fresh seafood and warm service at a reasonable price.

“Magnifique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This very french little bistro is a real gem and frequented by many of the ex pat french community. The seafood was divine and the fillet steak and chips was the best I have eaten in years.
