Eat in or take out, food is tasty, healthy, light and so are the prices. For lunch and dinner, in a cozy atmosphere, check out the large menu with its good wines and daily suggestions.

“Very friendly little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

We went on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviews.
Small resturant with a short but varied international styled menu. Very clean and refreshingly in Marrakech seemed to be None Smoking. Diner's wishing to smoke went outside to the small terrace at the front so beware if you decide to have an outdoor table.
The evening we went they seemed to be short staffed in the kitchen (which are upstairs but visiable through large glass windows) and the owner had to roll up his sleeves and lend a hand which in turn left only one waiter in the resturant on a very busy Saturday night. Fortunately no one seemed in a hurry and were happy to linger. Lovely local wines available by the glass. Good food simply prepared and presented. Worth a visit.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This restaurant is well worth a visit. The menu was not extensive, but the quality of the food was so good, that we ate dinner here twice in five days.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is on a busy road, but even on the outside front terrace, the bamboo screening made it feel secluded.

“Great meal in Marakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We came here with high expectations. However the maincourse beef tagine was very dry and bland, not at all what I was expecting. The tapas menu was delicious but portions were very small for the prices and the winelist and main menu and was very small and not all that interesting if you want food that isn't burgers. The desserts were perfect.

“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

And would echo all the good reviews from other Tripadvisor writers.

Small, friendly environment and the food, whilst preserving some of the local flavour, was also fresh and cosmopolitan enough not to be out of place in Paris or Florence.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable service - dollar for dollar, our best meal in MK.
