Delightful cooking of unexpected high quality. For 60dh you get an excellent 3 course meal consisting in my case of a fish soup, grill baby soles, creme caramel plus excellent olives and bread. Very happy!

I thought this place was going to deliver an authentic Moroccan experience but was all a bit touristy! Having said that the food was good an it is positioned so to can eat outside but avoid all the wind!!

I detest restaurants where I find nothing but other tourists. This one is no exception. Food is good but not great. My husband is a restaurateur, so we are quite picky. But for the price we felt we could have done better.

The dishes were a mixture of French&Maroc cuisine, really different from the usual food we had so far. Excellent use of maroc spices. Friendly service and Even wine to make this evening perfect. The prices are very moderate and the portions sufficient.

A cosy restaurant to eat original dishes! I live in Morocco and it the first time that i find a bricks restaurant.

I even asked for... More

Very nice decor, situated within a quiet plaza with a lot of other restaurants, very friendly staff. After reading the comments, however, I expected more of the food (esp. the bricks). The portions were rather small considering their price and good, yet not exceptionally tastefull.
