My friends suggested this restaurant, and explained that you can valet park at the hotel and walk over. I ordered a steak, and switched the potato side for grilled veg. It was a great meal, and I’ll definitely be back again.

Dropped by to have my favorite Moroccan tea as they serve one of the best in town. Ended up eating and as always the food was excellent and so was the service. Always a good choice.
