“Awesome vegetarian pastillas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful atmosphere, great view from the rooftop, excellent service and some great vegetarian options, including a small section of the menu comprised entirely of vegetarian pastillas. We tried a goat cheese and leek pastilla topped with slices of banana and a red/green pepper combination with raisins and prunes, both of which were packed full of flavour and fresh ingredients Easily some of the best vegetarian food we've come across in Morocco and a welcome change from the standard tagine and couscous options. Meat dishes looked equally well presented. Highly recommended.

“lovely restaurant and staff, great value - nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

It was such a nice and lovely dinner.
from the very first minute we were warmly welcomed by Joseff who let us sit in the terrace on the top of the restaurant.
We opt for the daily menu and it was amazing. Such a great value for good food.
I would reccomend the Maroccan soup, the beef cous-cous and oranges with cinnamon.
All was soooo yummy and thanks to the staff (especially Joseff who was really friendly and after the dinner showed us around and gave direction :)) we really enjoy our dinner.

“Very good food for reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the riad harmonie and we dined out here for several times. The menu has much variety. Cheap price and very nice quality food. You always get some olives with bread as a starter. Free of charge. And even If they don't have the exact drink (orangina) you ordered on the menu. Youssef sends someone to get it for you! Amazing service. You can sit nice on the roofterrace or inside with nice decorations. Friendly waiters and last but not least prefferable choice. If you've got a sensitive stomach. The food is fresh and wel cooked!

“Nice place to eat and relax with the breeze on the top terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I tried this restaurant with a friend and we found it lovely and very welcoming.
you climb up the stairs and you find a nice terrace with view of roof-tops and very cozy in the decor. Lights and typical moroccan materials hanging made the terrace infused in a lovely atmosphere.
The food was also great and fantastic for two 'veggies' one of which with allergies to spices!
The service was good, friendly and at the right speed (not too fast or too slow that you needed to call them).
On arrival we were given bread and olives which were dilish and helped keep out rambling stomachs at bay while our food was arriving.
I'll definetively go back there to eat!

“Lovely atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I'd been wanted to try this restaurant for some time as the entrance looked ever so interesting...
had the opportunity when a friend came visiting with me so we tried it one evening.
The terrace where you eat is really lovely and has a view of the rooftops towards La Place El Fna.
There was a large enough selection for two vegetarian like us and one with spice allergy!
We really enjoyed the meal and the service was attentive.
I'll definetively eat there again.
