“Good food, great setting, let down by service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Starter salads were impressive and is was great to get a little taste of everything. The tagines are good and like other review say, portions are generous. Wine was great, but very disappointing mixed kebab grill dish as the serving is small, rice bland and the whole dish isn't worth what they charge. Nonetheless, what would have been a lovely evening thanks to the setting and decor of the restaurant, was slightly ruined by the indifferent service, where the waitresses refused to address me directly and only interacted with my partner, and where us and all the tables around us had to struggle to get the attention of anyone all night.

“Good meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Our Riad booked this for us and we were not disappointed. We had tagines and the portions are quite simply huge...I thought there would have been more spice in the couscous as to me it tasted a little bit bland, but overall the dish was very good. Neither of us could finish or have dessert. The red wine was fine and probably the same price as home. £18/20.
The service was great and the girls were very friendly. It was a nice change to have women working in a restaurant.

“great food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

I normally research where to eat and when I when I asked my local about about this place, he confirmed they serve excellent local food at very reasonable prices. That was indeed true, with many locals around me eating. The food is great, prices very reasonable and they have a good wine list.

“Very pleasing experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Very pleasant restaurant with lovely service and in a lovely setting . "Starter salads" are a true taste sensation , pastilla was good. The Tajines were fine but not exceptional - I imagine they were made in bulk and then "decanted" into a Tajine rather than cooked in the Tajine as there was no "sticky bottom" to the Tajine - however very passable .

“Great service, good food, huge portions.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Really lovely place, very good food, excellent service, enormous portions. Do not overorder.

We had the mixed salad starter as recommended by others and it was rather fun even if the food itself for this part was nice but relatively unspectacular, they literally cover the entire table with what feels like a hundred little nibbles which is a very jolly way to start a meal.

We also had a pastilla which was a dish I came to really enjoy in Marrakech and I think this was my favourite. Then a tagine and a couscous, huge dishes and very tasty. Staff wonderful and very helpful and attentive all the way through.
