“Wonderfull.. if only it could be a bit more affordable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Went there several times with friends and family.. The location is great as it offers nice views of both the new Marina and the historic part of the city... The food is just outstanding, especially the selection of Spanish 'tapas' and the fresh fish - catch of the day?-, try the grilled turbo if available, it's simply magic..; Cons? in a country where still half of the population is struggling with poverty and hardly has enough bread to eat, one has to leave its social conciousness in the cloakroom to pay for a dinner worths the monthly salary of many.. But wine can help, the wine selection is good (but again terribly expensive!)... Well just like the Moroccans proverb says "alli bgha zine yaskha b' al mal" (Trsl: whoever wants beauty has to give up money..). But when luxury will become more affordable to more people in Morocco, this restautant will certainly need to start a chain, as we all love fish and sea delicacies!..

“Bon restaurant à un prix élevé”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

On y a mangé plusieurs fois dans le cadre du travail mais aussi personnel. Le restaurant propose une large gamme de fruits de mer. Les plats proposés sont très bons (j'aime particulièrement la paëlla "noire") et le service est super. Le seul hic, c'est le prix (le cadre à payer) qui est presque le plus élevé parmi les restaurants gastronomiques à Rabat.
