Dined here end of May 2014.
Vary varied menu with a long list of specials.
Foie gras starter was presented beautifully, and was delicious. The portion size was ample for 2 to share.
The small Entrecôte was a good size, but having asked for it to be cooked rare, I found the meat was unevenly cooked, with parts being medium-well at least. The main problem was that my steak was particularly fatty, and I had to leave half of it. My partners was much better; maybe mine was a one off.
The melt in the middle chocolate pudding was wonderfully presented but was cold through. Still very rich and yummy though.
There was only one waiter, who, along with the maître d', served all of the downstairs tables in the fully booked restaurant. Both only spoke in French and were attentive in that they asked us how our meal was. However, we felt ignored when our wine glasses were not topped up once. Also, we weren't offered another bottle when we had finished the first.
After our meal we went out onto the street to find a taxi. Upon noticing our departure, the Maître d' asked if we would write him a trip advisor review instead of asking if we might need help calling a taxi! Cheeky!
The restaurant is situated on a typical Moroccan road; it doesn't look like much from the outside; but inside the ambiance is modern and warm. High ceilings and open windows meant the smokers weren't too much of an issue. Still, the tables were very close together.
The standard of the restaurant is brought down by guests not adhering to the dress code. I was surprised that they allowed for flip flops and shorts; maybe I'm just old fashioned!
I enjoyed the music which was tasteful and up beat. And I very much appreciated the staff only speaking French which really added to the ambiance.
Spotlessly clean, but would have liked side plates and for crumbs to be scraped away.
Excellent value; surprisingly reasonable wine which was well matched to the food and delicious. Complimentary olives, nuts, popcorn and bread. Meal for 2 with wine and sharing starter and pudding came to £55.
All in all, I would come back here and would bring guests. But it wasn't the fine dining I was expecting.
