“Perch above the souks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a beautiful spot to escape the souks. We had a choice of sitting on the sunny terrace (hats provided) or in a covered booth made of traditional Moroccan construction. The menu is on a chalk board which will be placed by your table. If you are interested in the 3-course set menu, you will probably have to ask as this isn't mentioned on the board. A red leather folder is left on your table which you take up to the reception on the way out where they will ring up your bill. There are impressive views of the Atlas Mountains from the restaurant. On the two floors below are rows of little shops where you can have a quiet look around. They seemed to have a good selection of all the popular souvenir choices.

“marvellous lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Food was really super. Pasta especially good. We lunched there and found the food better than the general ambience (which wasn't bad by any means but just felt a bit flat) but otherwise pretty darn good. Would return

“Food good service lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Food was very tasty. Terrace is nice. Service was absent!
Worth going to eat. Tagine with prunes was excellent. Shame about the indifferent staf!

“Good food and relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Excellent food, nice drinks and good service. A wonderful atmosphere removed from the city bustle. It just doesn't feel as Moroccan as other places but that after all is not necessarily a problem. Definitely worth a couple of visits.

“Perfectly nice.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Just had sandwiches and drinks here. It is fine, but I cannot really see what everyone raves about. Interesting location on the square, but there is another cafe opposite that is just as nice.
