We came here on our first night, and this helped set the tone for pretty much the rest of our trip. The Riad was so quaint yet beautiful. Wish we stayed here! Going back tithe food, we weren't really given a choice, so were served the set meal. The pastilla was fresh and crispy, with a slight of sweetness from the cinnamon. We knew there were loads of food to come, so refrained from finishing this. The mezze served next was a wonderful array of little dishes to pleasure the taste buds. Everything was seasoned perfectly and the ingredients were so fresh. Particularly good was the eggplant and the red pepper dishes. For the mains, we opted for the fish and the lamb tagines. My favourite was definitely the lamb, as the dried fruit complemented the spicing and soft meat very well. We were told the fish was monkfish but felt this was not the case, and the fish was a tad overcooked and hence a bit dry despite the sauce. Luckily the tagines were not too big, and so we managed to polish these off. The dessert was the traditional orange slices with cinnamon, and a pastry cream. This was the perfect ending together with the fresh mint tea (try ask for this without sugar). All in all, we were nicely impressed with the service and food we got here, and felt the higher price charged was justified. Definitely would return again!
