“Very pleasant surroundings, simple, tasty food, lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We chose to go here for a proper meal rather than the cheaper but more stressful option of eating somewhere on the Jemaa El Fna, the interior of this place is stunning, classical Arabic decoration, marble fountains and a small swimming pool in the centre of a courtyard surrounded by orange trees and other plants, this is the place to come if you need a break from the soukhs. The food is the usual Moroccan fare, tajine, pastilla, and brouchette, but it is cooked well, tastes fresh and is good value. If the kitchen offered a more adventerous menu, it would get 5 stars from me, but as our bill came to only 540 dirham (48 euros) for a main course, a good bottle of Moroccan Cabernet, and dessert, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. The servers are very professional as well.
Would definitely come back here.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Go early and sit by the pool. Our favorite was the veal tajine four seasons/flavours, which had sesame, apricot, prune and walnut. Delicious doesn't even begin to describe it. A bit pricy, but worth the splurge once.

“Lovely location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This is a beautiful setting for an evening meal. The lamb tagine was delicious and the wine was good. The only thing that let it down for me was a disappointing dessert (Moroccan pastries) but that's personal taste. The staff were extremely polite and welcoming. Our group of 7 enjoyed the evening and the ambience very much.

“Lovely setting, traditional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Traditional Moroccan cuisine, tagines and salads, served in a beautiful dining room round a spectacular courtyard. The service was excellent and attentive. It wasn't the cheapest meal we had, around £20 a head with a half bottle of rose, but it was beautifully cooked and presented. Would recommend d and return.
