“Love the tortoises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I went looking for this place after seeing the reviews on trip advisor.

I'm so glad we found it (thanks google). My wife had a fantastic henna tattoo on her foot with was beautiful. While there we had a great lunch time meal and a couple of the iced mint drinks that were on the specials board that day.

Oh, and the tiny tortoise was amazing :)

“Lovely little rooftop terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Great place, walked past it many times without noticing so when found the reviews it was easy to locate. If you are staying at Riad Ambres Et Epices you have no excuse not to go here. It's 2 mins away! Good location too. Didn't have henna but watched others and it looked fab. Such a talent! Live the tortoises too - be careful not to tread on them!

“Lovely roof terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Popped in for a drink before we headed back to the airport and also had a henna tattoo done whilst there.

Lovely friendly staff, nice selection of drinks/food. Was lovely to sit and watch the tortoise scampering around the tables.

You can trust the henna here as it is natural unlike some in the main square.

Recommended!
