Couscous plates or tajine casseroles, authentic and hearty. Lamb shank tajine with eggplant, chicken with preserved lemon, mountain of couscous, boiled veg in broth side. Garnish with hot, earthy harissa and/or raisin sauce. Small appetites may want to share. Appetizer "salads" are little bowls of carrots in honey, tabbouleh, hummus, roasted peppers, spiced cubed potato. Moroccan white and red wine, cocktails, mint tea. Busy street but interior oasis, beautiful decor, atrium with fountain, small bar with lounge area. Multilingual hospitality. 4 agreed: delightful. Maybe best to leave your car in the harbor parking, it's not far.

Don't let the neighbourhood fool you. This restaurant is a little gem. Delicious food, fantastic atmosphere and a very sympathetic host (in traditional clothes) provide you a meal to remember for a very reasonable price.

We love this place ; for the extraordinary owner Norredine and the decor. Don't be put off by the somewhat sober exterior, push the door to the right and enter the authentic Moroccan courtyard.
Food is fun and near-as-you'll-get to what you had on your last trip to Morocco - sans the instant-slim "Tourista" the next morning :-)
Waitstaff are very very pleasant even when they struggle to keep up on really busy nights.
Mixed taster platter as first course while you wait for the main course is entertaining. We waited a while for the main course that followed, as often happens in popular evening dining venues. The decor and the ambience help the time go by so no sweat but if you go with kids under 12, order their main course at the very beginning.
Steel "tajine" covers are not very sexy and lack the authenticity of the original terra-cota ones.
Iced mint-tea is probably the most surprising iced-tea you'll ever have - a delight for the eyes and the palate !
