“Great French Food in a Tranquil Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

You eat by the pool - there was one other couple when we visited, so it felt like we had it to ourselves.

Friendly service.

The costs are reasonable for the quality. Fois gras, tagines (the best I ate on our trip) and dessert was all delicious.

Indecently large dessert wines by the glass.

Just a great experience - a great little place to heat in the medina. Recommend unreservedly.

“Perfect gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

While being so close to the busy streets near the Koutoubia Mosque & the Djemma el Fnaa, once inside it's another world - perfect peace & quiet. When sleeping we weren't aware at all of the noise from the busy streets just the other side of the wall. Its 3 courtyards are picture-perfect - & make a lovely lunch setting. While its blazing log fires & comfy salons were great for chilly evenings. The aperitif nibbles & dinner were all very delicious indeed. And the staff are extremely helpful. Next time I might try for a suite with a private terrace as our room didn't have one - but the rooftop space & pool is open to everyone with great views of the Koutoubia & the distant Atlas Mountains. A very good stay.
