“Good food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

6 of us were here for an evening meal in January.It was pretty quiet with only 4 or so table occupied.We went upstairs 1st for cocktails (Happy hour 2 for 1)

2 shared the mezze selection & the rest of us all had something different. Food, surroundings & service were very good .

It wasn't cheap but it was a very enjoyable night. My only complaint was I found the chairs uncomfortable

“Great Food and Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Went here for a friends birthday during our long weekend in Marrakech. Excellent food - contemporary Lebanese cuisine. Best mash potatoes I have ever tasted. Live music. Mediocre shisha (only three flavours: apple, grape, mint), very attentive waiting staff BUT one of the waitresses knocked my friends cocktail over her and we didn't even get a replacement... and this was a FULL drink!!! Hence the four stars.

If you go - you HAVE to try the coco mojitos and the mango mojitos. WOW.

“very nice setting, very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

we're vegetarian and were recommended this restaurant by a local and it was a really good find.

top food and excellent service. bit pricey but worth every penny.

suitable for non veggies but with a great vegetarian/ vegan selection of mezze/ lebanese tapas.

worth a visit.

“Great Lebanese mezzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner there on a weekend night, a couple of days before New Year. Food was delicious, in particular the Lebanese mezzas. We (3 of us) ordered 10 different mezzas - tabbouleh, falafel, sambousa, baba ganoush, hummus.... They were all excellent, really nicely prepared. We had gone before a couple of times to Lebanon, so we know how does "the original" taste like, and this was pretty close to that. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, Moroccan contemporary style, it has live music (traditional tarabuka players and singers), and the belly dancers come out a couple of times during the night... The service was not all that attentive but I think it is because they are still new to everything. Overall great dining experience especially for the weekend.

“excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Will not compare it with Lebanese food in Lebanon because it can not be compared. Especially in comparison with other restaurants in Marocco the service was excellent, food very good (apart from cold Haloumi cheese which I had sent back). Food really ok, decoration, environment excellent and it had a good price / quality ratio.
