“nice Morrocan food in good ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stayed in the Hivernage hotel so on few days dined in their resturant. the Morroccan cuisine is very good. their Tajine was better than what we had in most of the places in Morrocco. (in 8 days which had 16 meals, we had Tajine about 8-9 times and at 5-6 different places. This I would rank in top 2.)
Also they have a fantastic ice cream and dessert bar just adjacent to the resturant. On the 7th floor of the hotel is a terrace bar which is also fantastic in its ambience and the variety and quality of drinks.
the waiters and waitresses are very friendly. I wish some of them understood English. But who ever does not understand does a very sincere attempt to understand the customer and/or call another waiter or the floor manager. Their are lots of places in Italy and spain where they would not even bother. This was much different.

“French Dining Treat in Open air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This restaurant is on a small side street close to all the major western hotels. It is in an open air villa that is perfect for a romantic dinner, or special occasion. Not cheap but the food was 1st class served by discrete and polite staff.

Decent wine list, and white table cloths made it our best meal by far.

“Great atmosphere, decent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

I've eaten here three timess.

Each dinner we've had Pastilla. It varied in quality each time, from passable to really excellcent, one of the best. The artichoke dishes are very good.

Tonight my daughter had the camel shoulder and pronounced it excellent. I choked down a bite while trying not to think what it was, and it really is good.

The cocktails are sub par. The barmen try hard. Your drink will most likely only bare a passing resemblance to whatever you ordered, compared to London or SF, but it might be good. The wine list has some great Morrocan wines and the prices for Volubilis, for example are reasonably good.

The atmosphere is really great. The roof opens above the dining area and suddenly you're eating under the stars.

Pricey by Moroccan standards, but not by those of a major european city. Our bill for two was 560 MAD, but we went easy on the alcohol and just had two coctails (me) and a milk (her).

This is a lovely place and food is excellent and not too expensive. Had such a lovely meal. Would certainly recommend it to anyone with good taste. Really worth a visit.
