Despite other poor reviews we thought the food was excellent, very tasty, no stomach problems. Very good value and nice Rose wine on the menu. Price for 2 courses plus wine, water and coffee, 350Dh.

We went here as a group of 10 on the recommendation of our guide. It turned out to be a dreadful mistake. The unhygienic look of the place should have been a warning, which unfortunately we ignored. I won't go into the details of the food, apart from pointing out that two of our party who had the fish with... More

A kind sir from Senegal invite you inside. You can agree talk with him but dont eat at the restaurant : the food is not good, very poor, and the price is not like shown outside (particularly water is 20 dirhams over the price !!!!!).

We went there as part of an excursion. The food was horrible. 2 of us had fish and 2 had chicken. We left most of the food uneaten. I would not eat there out of choice.

This place looks pretty good from a distance with a terrasse overlooking a small square. However the service was pretty poor, the food over priced and not that great and more 'school dinners' than restaurant fare.

We ate here out of desperation, a few of the places we had wanted to eat at were all closed, came across this place and it was packed so gave it a try. The food was OK- not great. The fish seemed very fresh. The service was good overall. Would not go back as there are so many other places... More

Yes, Dinner and 2 lunches. Excellent, hospitable welcome and really good food. Chicken, lamb and fish tagines and wonderful fried fish (especially the Saint Pierre). Melting onion in the tagines! Wine and beer too. We ate on the terrace at the top and then coffee downstairs in the lounge area. No hint of stomach problems. The largest restaurant in the... More

If there is one place we didn't like it's this restaurant! We do not recommend it! The food was terrible, we weren't sick which honestly was surprising!

We only had a fish soup and a salade niçoise, this last one had nothing to do with the town of Nice in France more like badçhoise The fish soup (sans rouille, even though advertised) gave us the first attack of what is known in India as Delhi-belly or should I say Marrakech express....I close my case
