“Attentive staff and nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Nicely decorated as others have pointed out. I ordered badly I think, the meal was very light, i think it was a tomato and mozzarella tart and my boyfriend ordered steak and chips, which had nice dipping sauces but the steak was thin. It was really hot in there and we ended up sitting there for like 3 hours and getting really drunk, because they kept giving us more complimentary drinks, It started with complimentary really nice like crispy bread and olive paste and a glass of sangria. Then we ordered the cheapest bottle of wine (which was more expensive than other places) and at the end of the meal we got these complimentary vodka shots which was quite funny. I do recommend it though for a trendy night, more expensive than other recommended places in guilez though.

“A huge disappointment !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We walked into a beautifully decorated restaurant and walked out with a very bad taste in our mouths.

It started with the wrong appetizers. We ordered beignets calamari and got 4 small cheese beignets with no calamari to be found instead. The waiter was so kind to admit, after we had asked him 2 times if this was the correct appetizer, that indeed we were given the wrong appetizer. Yet we didn't get a replacement and paid 80 dam (about $9.5) for 4 small cheese croquettes we didn't even ask for. The 4 calamari would have been about $5 for four calamari!!!


The main dish....I got 3 overcooked shrimp that weren't even cleaned. Cut in half with the intestinal tract hanging on it. At 180 Dam ($22) for 3 shrimps , i really expect not to be eating shrimp waste, thank you very much! The rice was super dry and the veggies tasted like they just came out of the frozen vegetable department at Carrefour and were heated bag and all in their microwave.

My boyfriend got grilled entrecôte. Now he is a big eater and he was hungry yet had two bites and left the remaining on his plate. The meat was completely dried out and was not even chewable. Forget eating it. The bearnaise sauce turned and had a dry crust on the sides. It was gross.

The whole experience was a total disapointment and obviously we skipped desert.

“Great food, lovely atmosphere in Guliez”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had an excellent lunch here. The items on the fixed price menu were limited, and I think it was worth the extra for the a la carte items, the crab remoulade starter was amazing, the portions on the main courses were sizable. The drinks were on the pricier side, but the food was so very good that we'll definely be back soon. Just lovely atmosphere, service, presentation and portion size. Highly recommended.

Excellent restaurant in the new town.decor all exposed brick ,large fans and pop art paintings.food classic French bistro all well served with a good value lunch menu at 110 dhrs.
Steak frites great as is the magret with honey and rognons dijonaise. I really enjoy sitting at the tall tables polishing off Moroccan Gris ! The owners are preparing an Italian restaurant next door which should be open soon

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Starting from decoration and ending the quality of service and food this small restaurant in the center of Gueliz deserves the best note. We have taken lamb and steak, and as a steak lover i would say it was cooked perfectly. The meet was tender and melted in the mouth. The staff is attentive and the service is just .Thank you all for the nice eveing we spent there.
