We recently ate out at El Riad. We had lamb tagine which was melt in the mouth and delicious. It was nice to try something different. Thank you - we will be back.

Very promising newcomer restaurant run by David from Poitiers (France) and his Moroccan wife Myriam. On the night we dined David looked after us very well. Short but excellent menu. We had the aubergine salad (5 euros) to start. Huge portion plenty to share between...More

Charming cosy Moroccan terrace where we were attended by Myriam and David who couldn't do enough for us. The food was nicely presented and very tasty and sensible portions which allowed us to have a large selection as pricing was good - you could imagine...More
