We walked through the medina and found this restaurant. Staff was very welcoming. Food was nicely presented and served in a timely manner. Tables and seats are incredibly awkward - you can't get your legs under the table and seats aren't very cushioned. Wifi is free.

We stopped here for lunch. The service from our waiter was so welcoming the minute we stepped through the door. The couple next to us recommended the prawns but they'd run out so I opted for the calamari tagine and my husband had the monkfish brochettes. Both really delicious and our experience was made all the better for our friendly... More

A tiny restaurant, just one room downstairs, but a very warm welcome, and the food was fantastic. We had calamari tagine which came accompanied by as much bread as we could eat - it was fantastic - just perfectly cooked! and oranges with strawberries and cinnamon for pudding - divine!

We stopped here one night for dessert and tea and really enjoyed ourselves, so went back for dinner. We were the first to arrive that evening and sat at a cosy corner table, and not long after some others arrived who appeared to be regular customers (didn't look at the menu, and the manager/waiter already knew what they wanted). Regular... More

Stumbled across this gem while wandering the medina. The amazing calamari tajine was a highlight! Pair it with the vegetables tajine and you have a winner!

Waited for 1h15 for food. Waiter just laught at me when I asked why it toke so long. Portions too small - I was hungry when I left. Food was mediocre. Frenched fries (cold) and soup were fetched from neighbour. Totally shameless.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner here, having also visited the restaurant earlier in our trip. Its an intimate restaurant with with very good service which is excellent value. The food was delicious, including langoustine, monkfish, lamb tagine and the best Creme Catalane in Morocco.

We went here twice on our holiday. The first time I had the chicken and lemon tagine which was very tasty. My daughter had a chocolate crepe which she liked. If we had only gone once this would be a really positive review. However we went another night. The second time I tried the tagine royal followed by a brownie.... More

The Restaurant is decorated beautifully and has a romantic flair, so it's nice to eat there with your partner. The food was good, but not great. Service was very good and fast and people are really friendly and polite.

Thank Sara M
