So we tried to go to this tucked away palace restaurant and after being led inside were apparently rejected by the maitre d and told to find another restaurant. Went looking in vain for a bar or restaurant with alcohol (you can find them if you know where to look, but we don't). At some point ended up in the square surrounded by counterfeit cell phones trying to just pick a random tourist trap when some shady kid hands me a card and tells me to follow him to the restaurant on it. This happens roughly every six feet here, but at that exact defeated moment I decided to follow him. For several blocks. Past a hotel desk up two stories of dark stairs. I'm thinking by now I am about to be beaten, robbed and left for dead when suddenly we are in a huge tiled dining room filled with waiters in burgundy uniforms and scads of tourists. Proceed to order the prix fixe, upon which we are presented with bowls upon bowls of vegetables, dates, bread, mineral water... then comes enormous portions of the mains. Amazing lamb couscous with squash, kefta, frites, rice. Then a giant tray of the sweetest oranges and mandarins, followed by mint tea and cookies. Honestly a wonderful meal, a better value than other joints in the square. You can of course do better, but for a pleasant and quiet meal so close to the square, this was very nice.
