This was an absolute treasure to find, a very cozy restaurant. Was here with a friend on a November night. I had the snails as a starter, maybe a bit too big portion, but very tasty. I had some traditional couscous with meat for main course, also very tasty and again somewhat a bit too big portion. Along with this... More

For mains we had the filet steak with pepper sauce, and the medallions au gratin. Both cooked to perfection. Prices are also good value, 90 DT for starters, mains and drinks (=45... More
