We came here in 2014, and returned here twice this month. We had a lamb tagine and a lamb and chicken couscous. Both were very tasty and filling. We sat outside as it was warm and we could watch passersby. Inside it is painted with Moroccan views. Good ground floor toilet.We had planned to eat a third time but it... More

Quite surprised by some of the negative reviews of this place. I really enjoyed my tagine and couscous here as did my husband and 7 month old who had never had couscous before and loved it. The service was friendly and they were very accommodating of a baby. It's a lovely spot to sit and watch the hustle and bustle... More

During a business stay in Nice, and after wondering around the many vast little streets of the Old Town, we stumbled upon this rather little gem of a restaurant. Much to my delight it was obviously Halal, which was a bonus for me. The four of us each had a different meal from the menu, and I specifically enjoyed the... More

We visited this restaurant at the end of the season. The food was very tasty. I had the couscous with oriental sausage which was good, the vegetable jus was wonderful. Unfortunately as we were the only customers at the time there was limited staff and then the coffee machine failed. certainly a satisfying meal but not excellent.

Nice place on a friendly little street in Old Town. While the veg dishes were really good the show stopper was the Chicken Tajine. The chicken fell right off the bone. The flavours and aroma are just great - not too spicy but you do feel just right herbs in it. The only negative is that the service is Slooo...oow... More

From the outside and by the menu, it seems like this place would be really great -- not the case! We were served old olives and hot sauce that had been sitting out for decades. We ordered cous cous with lamb and the pastilla (pastry with chicken in it). The cous cous was salty and straight from a box --... More

Nice and friendly people served us a very good cous cous royale. Maybe environment a bit worn down but good value for money and large portions.

We ate here twice more or less by accident - the restaurants where we had intended to go were shut or couldn't take us. We were agreeably surprised by the friendly service, the tasty tajines (we tried chicken and lamb) and the even tastier starter salads. The waiter told us that Saf Saf had been there for 44 years owned... More
