Surprise, this food is superb. Monkfish on rice with guacamole is out of this world, sliced eggplant with goat cheese is just as good. This place is a find, just go

This place was opened using creativity and love. “Mega loft” soon opened down the road stealing the menu and the decor. The owner did his best to change decor and rotate the menu. They deserve more and work hard and it’s clear. Great food!

Awesome food, service, ambiance - a nice break from the Medina. The starter dips of honey-drizzled goat cheese & olive tepenades are really special and the mains delicious. Everything is scratch made in-house - even the spicy tea blend (must try!). Marhaba!

We all enjoyed eating here. The restaurant has a quirky vibe and the food that we had was delicious. Even though we all are different meals, we all agreed the restaurant was one of our favourites and we would go back in a heartbeat.
