We spent four nights elsewhere and were pointed in the direction of the Villa Flore for supper by our riad’s owner. She was spot on as it had the best food in the centre of the Medina bar none and a pleasant change from Tajeen/couscous which can get a bit monotonous. The red wine from the local hills (vin de maison) was a surprise and infinitely better than the ubiquitous 'president'. The reviewer who disliked the 'bouillabaisse' missed the point- you should be decidedly careful eating fish this far from the sea in Africa and I had the fish soup which was very good but the bouillabaisse was the same soup with fish in! That aside the service was faultless by local standards and the lunch a terrace is an absolute must if it is warm but not too hot and the plat delicious.
Eat here definitely and if you like this style of room it offers great value to stay as well. Much recommended.
