Had the royal couscous and lamb tangine. Round off with mint tea. Restaurant is opened at 6 pm and empty when we were there. The food is delicious and service polite. Nice deco.

We had planned to eat at Le Bavarois but it didn't open until 8pm and we wanted to eat at 7pm. The portions were on the small side, which was fine for us but if you're a big eater you might want to bear this in mind. Tagine was good but nothing particularly outstanding about the meal. The decor is interesting and the waiter was efficient and helpful. Can't remember the price, but know it was very reasonable. good value for money

There are just tourists in the restaurant, we ordered Moroccan salad and Moroccan soup (lentil soup) for starter, main was Chicken Tagine and a couscous. After like more than a week in Morocco, actually the food basically just taste the same or very similar everywhere, so food here is also decent and nice. But what I really liked was the decoration here. And it was good photography opportunity. Dessert was not that impressive though, so can might as well skip that.

We had dinner in this small restaurant one evening in Casablanca, and because we had enjoyed our first visit (both food and ambience) returned for a late lunch another day.

Its location is just inside a rather dodgy looking side street near the central market, but once you enter you are surrounded by an interior that is very cosy, colourful and ornate, with zelliz tile work, banquettes with lots of cushions, and interesting lamps. Fortunately it is air-conditioned, as it was quite hot inside at lunch-time until it was turned on.

The menu (which is also posted outside) is quite extensive, and every meal you order is preceded by a basket with lots of Moroccan bread, some very hot harissa sauce, and olives. There is an English menu (we noticed both times that about half the people in the restaurant were tourists), and the servers are friendly and speak some English.

Prices are very reasonable, and our food was delicious on both visits. Both times we had harira soup (30 MAD) and a tagine such as the one with lamb, almonds and onion (75 MAD). The portions in the tagines were not very large, so you might want to order a second dish if you are a big eater. Their fruit juices are wonderful, all freshly squeezed.

The low round tables make eating somewhat uncomfortable, and smoking is allowed which can be unpleasant for non-smokers. On both visits there was quite a long wait between placing the order and receiving the meal, so don’t go here if you are in a hurry.

I had a 7 hour layover with 2 friends. Took a cab from the airport, then a local cab which took us here. Food and service were great. They even got us the "wifi" password for the hotel that came up on our computers.
