“great little chill out zone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

found this on the way back to our hotel. Entered the place as it looked promising, and it didn't let us down.
Right from the charming waitress right to the chilled atmosphere in the lounge.
Only sat in for few nibbles (great olives) and a couple of beers. Relaxing end to a hectic day around marrakesch.
Recommend it,!

“Delicious food, great service and a fun environment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I ate here with my boyfriend a few nights ago (December 2012), we arrived at 7.30pm and the restuarant was quite empty, but at 9pm it was over half full. It was a monday night, the food was delicious, we shared some lovely starters and the mains were great (tajines). Mains are around £10 each, we had drinks too which were normally priced.

After dinner we had a shisha upstairs which was 150 dihram around £12, one of the best I've ever had!! The restaurant is beautiful too it's without a doubt the coolest restaurant we have been to in our time here.

At around 10.00pm two belly dancers came on too and the music was turned up a little! Great atmosphere! Definitely recommend.

“Just wish we could have fitted more of the Mezzes in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We arrived a little early on a Tuesday evening and the place was pretty empty which worried us a bit. We needent have worried though...

Had some of the tastiest starters here (certainly the best we've had in Marrakech) - the Mezzes are delicious!

We tried the chicken wings in garlic, lemon and corriander, the chargrilled haloumi and Kebbe (minced lamb with pine nuts) and loved them all - the juice of the chicken was so good we finished off most of the bread too, to finish it off!.

Mains were good too. My partner's lamb tagine went down well although the spit-roast chicken I ordered actually came IN lebanese bread rather than WITH it but some of the tastiest chicken sandwiches i've ever had.

The huge restaurant had filled up a bit by about 8:30 and is clearly popular with locals and tourists.

Probably a bit on the pricey side but certainly worth a visit!

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Order the mezzes, it's a great sampling of 19 dishes. Comfy booths, great wine and the belly dancers are gorgeous.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We tried a few mezzes for starters. Excellent eggplant, chicken wings, and sausages.

Main course; I had chicken and lemon tagine which was great and the wife had skinny fries and a steak which was cooked perfectly.

Great decor which is enough to visit this place alone but the dancers at the end topped thins off.

Great service from really helpful staff as well. Reasonably priced.

I'd highly recommend.
