They brought us bread to start. We had Courgettes Vertes for 15 dh, about $1.50 USD. This was some kind of zucchini puree that I would rate a 3. Then we had a meet dish with prunes (we didn't eat the prunes), not sure what...it was called for 40 dh, about $4. We had a Coke Zero and a large bottle of water. Cost was 97dh with a 20dh tip included. Total of about $10.More

We ate here after a lovely morning walk around Chefchaouen. Our guide said they had moved, so we walked to the old location and a nice young man led us to the newly renovated restaurant. I ordered sardines in a lovely tomato based sauce, served...in a sizzling clay dish, along with the bissara soup (fava bean), which was mild in flavor. Wonderful fresh bread, too. The special included fresh chanterelle mushrooms, but we can pick those at home, do didn’t order that dish. There is a first-floor dining room but we were seated one floor up which had an open (exposed) wall, so fresh air drifted thoughout the room. There is also a rooftop deck but it was too hot to eat up there. Staff was friendly and efficient in serving our group of ten. They don’t rush you, so it’s great for a leisurely lunch.More

Our Riad, Casa Sabila, as well as fellow travelers we met,recommended this place. It has recently moved and we were advised that someone would be at the original location to walk us to the new location. Unfortunately, the young teen who was guiding us went...way too fast and we lost him in foot traffic. I convinced my friend to go back to the old location and try again. It was well worth it. We sat on the terrace under a full moon and had the best pastilla I've ever had. Also the white beans in a tomato based sauce, served in a sizzling clay saucer, were so delicious. Don't expect plush surroundings or super attentive servers but you can expect delicious Moroccan food at great prices. Dinner for two (way too much food, had to take some to go) was $13.00 including tip. Possibly the best meal in 2 1/2 weeks of travel throughout the country.More

This restaurant was recommended by our driver as the place where he likes to eat, especially goat tagine & bissara (fava bean soup). The soup was very tasty: simple, hearty, somewhat like split pea soup. We had just eaten goat at another restaurant, so opted...for the beef & veggie tagine. Again, very tasty &, I bet, traditional. All was very, very inexpensive, even by Moroccan standards. I gave the Beldi Bab Ssour four, not five, stars because I found the food a bit dull, but my partner (& our driver) disagreed! The location has recently moved; go to the old location, & a waiting young man will guide you to the new place, about a 7 minute walk. The new setting includes a comfortable, attractive and clean dining room, plus a roof deck. Staff are very nice and efficient. A very pleasant eating experience.More

Ate there every day of my 3 night Chefchauan stay. Food was authentic, service was great and the location is good. They have three separate dinning floors: a roof top (either cold or hot, depending on the time of day and year), the level below...the roof top (OK, but also exposed to the elements outside) and the level below that, which is the nicest (where the cashier is). This dining room has nice furniture and decor. It also has a much more comfortable feel. The ONLY bad point is that they don't want to let individual reservations use it, even it there are 2 or 3 people. They ONLY want to keep it for Japanese tour groups. NOT GOOD! On two occasions I went to eat there and asked if I could sit of this level and was told no there was a large (Japanese) tour group coming. However, by the time I finished and went down to pay, the group still had not arrived... This is the ONLY reason I didn't give them 5 stars. I hope they change this policy... I'd love to go back.More

We didn’t understand the hype for this place. Food wasn’t good and we got the diarrhea the next morning. The portions are small and half of it is fat or bones. Just go somewhere else.

Restaurant itself is beautiful, the the food average and staff service okay. But had horrendous diarrhoea and vomitting for the next 4days after visiting. 100% was because of this restaurant because we hadn't eaten all day and all 6 of us had the same after...effects. We could have been unlucky but I would stay well clear if you don't want to take the chance. We have eaten moroccon food for the past two weeks at restaurants in Marrakech, Fes, Rabat and all had positive experiences... We've all had to take a break from Moroccon food for now.More

We ate here twice during our short stay in Chefchaouen. As others have said, the restaurant has recently moved so ask at your accommodation or contact them on monebasa@yahoo.com. It’s just inside the medina from near Hotel Madrid. We’ve been there twice but on directions...only! It’s now in the upstairs of a home so look on the wall for a small sign. It’s a lovely clean and fresh environment. The servers are so friendly particularly the young man who served us both nights in his smart outfit and bow tie! Tonight we had an OJ, a vegetable dish and 2 tajines followed by 2 ‘house’ goat yoghurts for 150dh. It was all delicious, especially the goat tajine. Highly recommended.More

Receptionist at hotel recommended & gave directions, however on arriving at location found it had moved. A guide was posted at old location & he showed us the way. We were a little disconcerted at first but on arrival found for sure we were in...the right place. We ended up eating here 2 nights out of our 3 in Chefchaouen. The staff here were friendly, eager to please & quite entertaining especially Zachariah, an absolute gem! Menu is in a few languages & an explanation is given of anything you are unsure of, definitely applied to the private parts of the oxen! The Moroccan soup was delicious & at 5 dirhams such amazing value. We sampled various tagines including goat, calamari, kefta, mushroom, beef with "plumps" (prunes) & chicken with 🍋 & olives. Would recommend them all. Desserts also very good especially the yoghurt & the cream caramel. On the 2nd night we met the owner Said who was charming & chatted to us about why he had moved to a new location & how the building had been completely renovated. He hopes to set up a new restaurant serving seafood, he is clearly passionate about his business & we wish him well in his new venture. The meals we ate here were excellent & such amazing value , the whole experience enhanced by the brilliant staff.More
