I chose this restaurant on the basis of good write-ups in my 2 guide books, and I was not disappointed. It's a smart, contemporary restaurant in the new part of town and, as such, is more expensive than your average medina eatery but at 320DH (c £25) for 2 courses plus water and wine it's less than you'd pay for food of this quality in the UK. I had the 'Choice of Salads' to start which turned out to be 12 different creative dishes of raw and cooked vegetables (delicious - and no tummy upset from the raw veggies) followed by the tagine of chicken with caramelised pumpkin. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is probably the best chicken dish I have ever eaten! It was traditionally Moroccan - an elegant dish rather than a peasant dish. Other reviewers have commented that the staff didn't smile enough. Well, I found the service discreet and low-key but I certainly had smiles too - in response to my smiles and compliments on the food. I was travelling alone, and eating alone, and had no difficulty getting a table for a midweek lunch but I have no doubt that this is a restaurant where you need to book in advance for evenings and weekends.
