This restaurant is small--so go early!--but just delightful! The offerings are a mix of traditional French dishes and traditional North African ones. The portions are generous, and the prices are reasonable. I had the pastilla, but shared tastes with several others who'd ordered quite varied...More

The resulting dishes are very nice: half confort food, half invitation...More

This restaurant is located very close to our apartment so we pass it a lot, but we had never tried it. When my parents came to visit we were tired and hungry after our journey from the airport so we gave it a whirl. The...More

We were looking for a local place, not touristy, with lots of atmosphere and great food. We were not disappointed. Luckily we had booked, otherwise I think we would have been turned away. My tuna steak with honey and fig sauce and ratatouille was superb....More
