“Makes a pleasant change, nothing much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

It's a good opportunity to get to the newer part of Marrakech and taste some different ingredients. Clearly tripadvisor is ensuring a good supply of Europeans visiting this joint, but when you take away the branding (quirky, French restaurant in Morocco which serves Italian food), then there is not much else to say about it. Service was functional - I expected it to have a few characters working there - not so. Food was OK - the bread was superb and best I've had in Morocco. Comical translations from French to English on the menu are a likely talking point. Decor looked almost deliberately 'aged' and was full of interesting classic posters for famous French and international products. Noticeboard was of interest, including an advert for a five tonne elephant. Booze was fine. It's worth going there and great for young couples but not as inexpensive as I had hoped it would be, with lots of dishes in the 130 dirham range.

“So-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We chose the restaurant after a recommendation from he hosts t our riad. He food was good, particularly the speciality pasta with Corsican ragu. But or lunch, there were only 4 tables occupied and it was a rather hurried and sterile visit. Maybe it would have Ben better for dinner?
