it's true that this restaurant provides respite from the ubiquitous tagine trail, but actually, I'd rather have had another tagine! My partner's pasta promised much from a recommendation and from the restaurant's reputation for making the best pasta dishes in town, but he could have found its equivalent or better on the average English high street. I did enjoy my dolmades with a light lemon sauce and good vegetables, but our starters were ordinary, and the desserts rather tasteless. We had been led to understand that the Corsican chef-patron, with his customary greeting of diners, would be keen to discuss the preparation of your dish but on this occasion he just smiled a lot and remained firmly on the shop floor chatting throughout the evening. In its favour, the menu offers an eclectic mix of seafood and many other dishes with French and Italian influences, and the ambience has an old-fashioned timewarped feel without any Moroccan character which may be welcome for Marrakech inhabitants. However, the staff do that typical Marrakech thing of leaving you at your table without asking what you want to drink, and proceed to ignore you until they decide to take your order.
