This hard to find restaurant is a gem. The setting, nestled in between high walls but with an open roof, was really relaxing. The food quality was excellent. The homemade pastas were outstanding. The downside was the manager / wait staff. He insisted we purchase...More

Excellent food and service we eat downstairs to start then went upstairs for a private party. Eveything was top notch this place is worth finding on the edge of the medina.

Well-designed with a cool vibe. Go upstairs, have a drink in one of the spots and chill with the beautiful (mostly non-Moroccan) people.

We arrived around 6:00 pm to have a drink on the terrace. Though the terrace was not full but many of the tables had reserved signs on them. We found a table only to be asked to move but were not given any options you...More
