“A little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Although the menu was very limited everything we tried was very tasty. They were out of lamb, which was disappointing as it is my favorite. We went on a Monday night, so the restaurant wasn't busy. The waiter was very courteous and friendly. He recommended a lovely Spanish wine which we enjoyed. The decor is very cosy. Our table was in a small alcove with cushions on the floor and a low table. We were able to recline and lounge while we ate and we just loved it. They also have regular tables if reclining isn't for you.

Food was poorly preparared and does not compare well to other Morrocan restaurants. Food was very overpriced for the quality. Service was very poor.

“Slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you are in a hurry to eat, this is not the place for you! We have been there twice over the last 2 years and service has been slow but the food was always good. I would recommend if you have a lot of time.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Had 7:30 reservations on a Sat night. We were a party of 11. Had drinks and sat at table. After showing us a very limited menu, we were informed that they were out of lamb( bad for a Moroccan restaurant). A few minutes later, informed that they were out of chicken.

One of us had to get up and search for some bread.
Overall a pretty sad night. Have no reason to ever return.

“Poorly run-”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We arrived 7:30 on a Sat night. They were already out of lamb and chicken Tangine (2/5 main dishes). The restaurant was packed and there was a waiter who was in charge of the whole restaurant and was doing the best he could but we did not get a morsel (not even bread) until 9:30. We were a table of 11 people. The dinner finally came around 10:00pm and we received it in tandem. The waiter was apologetic but obviously overworked and overwhelmed and when I asked where the owner/manager was he said he was "not here tonight". The portions were extremely small for what was charged. I venture to guess they were running out of food. Half of our group had been there years before and it was very nice- obviously things have changed and there needs to be better oversight on food and enough staff for a Saturday night.
