While staying at this amazing hotel, I had their set course dinner and loved it. Dining is in a traditional salon off one of the interior courtyards at this boutique property. Stunning tile work, art and decoration. Live traditional Moroccan music. And great food: starters, then 7 plates of delicious Moroccan vegetable salad mezze, then a wonderful cous cous, followed...

A magnificent Moroccan styled-meal with chicken pastilla, assorted mezze, chicken, fish & lamb tagines and royal couscous, and crème pastilla to finish. The highlight was the lamb tagine but overall it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time

We were served a tradtional lamb tagine prepared with local fruits and vegetables. It was so tender and juicy you could cut it with a fork. It was accompanied by a Moroccan salad which is comprised of 7 different cooked vegetables offered in 7 separate dishes. Each was prepared with various aromatic spices that just melted in your mouth. We... More

Also have the mint tea at the end of the meal. One of the best on my entire trip. Treated my daughter and myself like revered... More

We had lunch at this restaurant, upon recommendation of our riad staff. While it may be a bit difficult to locate without direction (we were escorted there), being off of one of the main roads added to the peacefulness of the riad / our dining experience. The setting itself was absolutely beautiful and exceptionally well-kept (the space is owned by... More

The receptionist from our hotel called up and booked us a slot at 19.30pm then it was a taxi drop off and down a street ally (need... More

We ate here 1 night and had a traditional Moroccan meal. The food was superb,extremely tasty and the lamb just melted in my mouth it was so nice. Service was excellent too. My only negative is the seating arrangements felt awkward and uncomfortable but thats a small price to pay for how good this place is. Ate here May 2013
