The owner has a good taste for food and humour. He knows what he's serving. There is a small outdoor patio behind the restaurant.

It is quite near to the Markt Square. A friendly man took our order of Chicken cous cous . It came with soup and portion was large enough for us to share. A satisfying lunch for 18 euros for two of us. It is quite brightly decorated.

The next course had the taste and texture of anonymous vegetables cooked for 15 hours. On our way out, we encountered a couple looking at the menu. I shook my head no, as if so say: Go... More

It's run by a couple - we went on a relatively quiet night and were very well looked after by the guy who does front of house. Good options for veggies - cous cous or tagine in the evening. I...

The welcome was warm and hospitable, the service was attentive and the restaurant had a fantastic home cooked family feel about it.

Great find. Soups were marvellous. Particularly the red lentil and the carrot. A vegetarian and an omnivore - satisfied both. Great vege couscous. Lovely lamb and rice. Highly recommend this place. Friendly multilingual host and very prompt service.
