top food, touristy but worth it

You can tell the minute you walk in that this place is in the lonley planet and here on tripadvisor. It's a great cozy atmosphere but the clientele are all foreigners and tourists. BUT - the food rocks. It was a great place, delicious tagines and really nice lamb, all for a good price. I think... read more

We've eaten here twice this week. Mains are 75 MAD. Beautiful food, best we've had in Morocco, including fancy places in Marrakech. Highly decorated, excellent service as well. It's near the train station casa port on the ocean side of Casablanca. Last night it was full of locals which is alway a good sign. Enjoy.

Our taxi driver suggested that we go there as he stated it was very authentic Moroccan food but the majority of diners were brought by taxi drivers, the food was below average and tasteless, very slow and bad service. I personally think that the taxi drivers must be on commission for bringing potential diners to the place, big Con!

Cozy interior. Looks authentic Moroccan. Locals eat here too. Didn't get enough to get full though. Service was pleasing.

Arrived late at night, was recommended by my hotel to go here and I'm so glad. Great service with English menu and English speaking waiter. Going inside was like entering an oasis from the ordinary. Lovely chicken and vegetable tagine and fresh orange juice at a very reasonable price. Will revisit.

Beautifully tiled room classically decorated in Moroccan style is atmospheric, but unfortunately the Moroccan food is just ordinary. It is not licensed to serve alcohol, but the fresh squeezed juices are good. The location just behind the Central Market is well-populated at night.
