Five tables in a little crammed space and dedication for simple yet tasty cuisine. That's all it takes to make a great eatery. We tried the Saint Pierre fish and the shrimps&avocado which were delicious.

...while not bad it’s not particularly good either, value for money below average i would say, portions are rather small, fish was not super-fresh, staff was unenthusiastic, dining room and furniture are tiny, squeeze a bit..

Small prices, tasty food. It is not so hard to find. It's very small, about 10 persons but they prepare the food very fast so you can wait a little bit. I recommend this.

Small, cosy and very cute place. Tasty food for a great small price. Not for luxury seekers though. I'm definitely recommending it.

Authentic Moroccan but also very quirky. A must to visit as it’s rather unique, in that it’s tiny, traditional and only ten diners at one time. The food was delicious and so very cheap. The service was warm and welcoming. Great for a chilled night.

Yes, it is indeed tiny. Which is part of the charm. You feel like you are eating with everybody else, a 'we're all in this together' kind of feeling. Nice to support a women's business in a country where women's economic power is at very...More

When you eat here, you feel exclusive. It only seats 10 people at a time! The food is basic but so, so good. The staff is wonderful. I had to wait a bit for a seat. I’m so glad I did.

Cozy, tiny place serving only couple of meals, though very delicious. We had shrimps and wonderful juicy fish, both with starters and two kinds of fresh juice. Highly recommended.

I dont know if they are open during ramadan, but they definitely do not serve alcohol - for alcohol you go to beach and friends, ocean vagabound or Taros (Also during ramadan)
