En plus de ces delices Orientaux, le Jana propose une animation orientale telles que musique traditionnelle et danseuses orientales qui vous plongera dans l'ambiance magique de notre ville Ocre.

“Not the Best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We dined here and were the only ones in the restaurant. I can understand why,
it was a huge restaurant with very dim lighting by candles. We could not see the menus and
when asking for more light was handed another candle!!!

We all decided to order the same thing as it was difficult to read the menu and therefore ordered lamb tagines all round. For the price, the quality of the food was not good. From what I could see and taste there was only one piece of Lamb in my Tagine!!

“Not very good at all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

We dined here and wish we hadn’t. It was a huge restaurant with over 30 tables and only 4 of us in the restaurant – we should have known why. Service was really good, food less than average

“What a boring setting, cold! Wine is...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

What a boring setting, cold! Wine is overpriced and the food not worth the money. Dry chicken tagine that didn't agree with my body at all... Was it not fresh? What a waste to go to this restaurant, stick to the club!

“Pacha should 'stick to their knitting'”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

Lovely surroundings spoiled by service reminiscent of a nationalised railway company's hostelry -- untrained waiters, incompetent management, extremely slow service. We were a party of four shown to a table for six, but we ended up having to remove the extra settings because nobody else did so. It was nearly impossible to read the menu or the drinks list because the lighting was so low. Food that was billed as "inventive Moroccan" certainly was -- if the inventors came from the Large Hadron Collider. The belly dancers were as unimpressive as the staff. The restaurant is owned and presumably run by Pacha, the nightclub next door, and is just as bad as its counterpart in Ibiza. Try the nightclub, but definitely NOT the restaurant.
