We were looking for a place to eat without everyone seeing us since it was Ramadan and we found Chris’ place. You get very delicious food for a cheap price and a friendly waiter. We recommend it 👍

Always worth a visit. Sit in their tiny salon on tiny benches and enjoy lovely tagines cooked almost next to you at very low prices.

the service was mediocre at best. I ordered veggie couscous. The vegetables were not fresh and were possibly very old. I become incredibly ill the night after my dinner at this restaurant. Tourists and locals should avoid this establishment.

Cosy, friendly restaurant with charming service. The chicken cous cous was delicious. Best I've had in Morocco. An enormous searing, I could only eat half of it! And great value.
