We were at a loss, where to go for dinner and stumbled across this gem. Highly recommend it. The food and atmosphere was wonderful and very friendly staff.

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely meal at this intimate little restaurant. The owner and staff were friendly and eager to please and the food could not be faulted. Excellent and extremely reasonable.

“Husband's favourite meal in Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had a wonderful time in this lovely little intimate restaurant. We were also really taken aback by how delicious the food was. We had some delicious Harira (sp) soup to start and then my husband had sardine-ball tagine. It was unexpectedly very tasty. I had the spag bol which was nice too. The staff (I think owner and son) were very friendly and we would have gone back the next night but it was full. A lovely place for lunch or dinner or just drinks. The atmosphere was so nice we stayed for a bit to read and write postcards. Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent moroccan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

In this tiny restaurant the food is very good and very cheap. We went there once and had the lamb tagine and the fish pastilla and returned a second time to have the fish pastilla again because it was one of the most delicious dishes we tried. The staff was also very nice, and the ambience as well, with low light and music.

“Good for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The woman that came out of the back to seat us didn’t speak English or French. The menu was the typical Moroccan fare, so we ordered cheap meat & lemon chicken tagines despite this communication roadblock. Two minutes later, the manager hustled in with apologies. The tagines were good. We were the only diners.
