“Great Food and Service - Interesting Menu”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We visited La Fibule on Friday 21st Feb 2014 and had a really enjoyable meal. Food was nicely presented and cooked to a very good standard. The menu has an interesting and different choice being Moroccan. They also have a specials board which had several fish dishes.

You take your own wine, which helps keep the restaurant bill reasonable. Overall it was a great choice and recommended.

“very nice”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I really enjoyed it here. The interior is very cosy and warm, the food was yummy and the service although slow was reasonable. They should have a few more waiters perhaps so as to make the service a bit faster. Nice Hummus

“Fab food, shame about the service”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

I have been a regular customer in this restaurant for several years...the food is pretty similar, as is the decor, however I'm disappointed in the waiter service.
I understand the Moroccan way is laid back, but on the last three visits I've been nothing but appalled, in fact in one visit, we left.
Usually, there is one guy working there, no matter how many customers there are. He is lazy and ignorant, once shown to your table, don't expect him to ask you if you would like to order drinks whilst you look at the menu. More than often, expect to have to call him over, whilst he is chatting to the kitchen staff.
My last visit, last week (jan 20th) there were only 3 other customers, once seated, of course we still had to call the "waiter" over to take our orders. He isn't attentive, chatting with his back to the restaurant isn't the idea of hospitality in my eyes.
During the meal he even dropped my fork on the table and instead of replacing it, just carelessly placed it back on my plate. It's real shame, although I really like the food, the service is atrocious. He really doesn't seem to care if the customer is happy or not. I think La Fibule needs some competition to bring their standards upto scratch, or start take-away service instead, clearly customer service us not a priority.

“Christmas night out... amazing!!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

We went here for our Christmas party, despite it being a small venue making the book was made smooth and easy by staff. Even when booking numbers changed last minute the staff were more than accommodating and pleasant. Food was hot and tasty and came out in good times. Genuinely can't fault the whole night. Staff were phenomenal. Thanks for a great night. Definitely recommend for couples and groups.

“Great Moroccan Restaurant”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This is an excellent restaurant, serving authentic Moroccan food. You take your own drink, so the costs are reduced. 4 of us had 3 courses each, with coffees for £30 a head, including tip.
The surroundings are comfortable and the staff are friendly. Even though we went on a Friday night and there was not a spare table, the service was spot on. Enough time between courses so we didn't feel pressured to eat up and get out. The food was piping hot and very tasty. There is a wide range of starters and main courses to satisfy even the most discerning gourmet. Excellent value, a great night out
