The outdoor is charming especially when the weather is good. You have many choices in the menu. The food is ok. The staff is very kind.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. The seafood is cooked well, and the menu is rather diverse. That said, the service is typical for Morocco - it can take a while. The atmosphere though is very serene, a very lovely garden. The real challenge is the lack of parking and some of the street noise from busy Mohammed VI Avenue.

I have to admit after few rounds of restaurants around the city, there is no doubt that Morocco has one of the best restaurants in whole Africa. Probably due to the french influence of culinary delight but have to say they know there move around the food to give you the best experience. Go with Chefs recommendations & dont skip... More

We only ate here once on our trip but both myself and my colleague where impressed. The staff are very attentive and well trained. The menu is what you would expect of a French/International restaurant, the steak was very good. The creme brûlée for desert was a particular favourite! Starters range from 60-120dh and mains are from 150-300dh

Nice outdoor seating and indoor seating is more formal. Great food and service, need a business lunch or just want a nice lunch this is a great option. Parking across the street as parking is limited.

Excellent place for a business lunch, but it CAN get busy. Fantastic food, including the best salad in town: the seafood "piccolo salad". allows you to save room for deserts, which are OUTSTANDING. Also a very good selection of Moroccan wine (truly good and excellent value): go for Volubilia or Medaillon, and try the "gris" or "rosé" in the summer.

This was the one place where we visited twice during our stay in Rabat. We enjoyed the excellent food, especially the sea food tagine. The staff are friendly. We opted to dine outside. Sometimes you get petrol smells from the petrol station next door. Wish people would also stop smoking. We were also delighted to meet the resident cat, which... More
