“Great food but slow on the service”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Such a shame for a restaurant to create great food but have such slow service. What's even worse is that I've read reviews going back over a year with the same complaint. Either this restaurant doesn't acknowledge Trip Advisor or it just really doesn't care. Regardless I think this restaurant is sitting on a gold mine. They've got a great location in De Pijp, a chef who knows how to produce great food, but they've got to get the food out quicker. Originally I thought it was just a matter of being understaffed but then they served me the wrong main course after waiting over an hour for it. They did manage to improvise and give me the next dish out of the kitchen but my partner was nearly finished by then. In these situations the server has to offer something on the house (complimentary) because they made an error. Unfortunately that didn't happen and I can't wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant. On a side note, nicely decorated bathrooms but no towels to dry your hands. Again, disappointed.

“Moroccan French fusion”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food, tasty, healthy, cooked in the open kitchen. Good service, though slow.
Prices are steep and no menu fixe.

“Chic atmosphere, delicious food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

A perfect place for a romantic birthday dinner. Delicious food, great wine, lovely atmosphere (the rose petals in the bathroom are a sweet touch), and perfect, relaxed service. We so enjoyed our evening here!

“Good but not great”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I was really excited to get Tunsian/Morrocan food when we made the reservation but I was a bit disappointed that the flavors were not as flavorful as I would have hoped. The place was very nice and busy and we enjoyed it, but it was not as good we had hoped.

“Delicious Moroccan food in a bistro-style atmosphere”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Very good, friendly service. Excellent food and also wine (rather surprised me). Young-ish and not quite so young clientele, seemingly mainly Dutch. Very nice atmosphere and not too expensive.
