This is a lovely little restaurant on the side of the running waters of the spring at Ras El Ma. There is a terrace, and quite a number of virtually private tables set in the terraced gardens behind and alongside the building. The people who owned the premises were very friendly and hospitable and the food was delicious. The goat pie was finished for the day but they cooked me a fresh dish of spiced goat and legumes, which was hearty and delicious. Bread was served hot, very fresh and crusty with a nice tapenade.
Deserts are also gorgeous: the local yoghurt with walnuts and honey, and the Chocolate Parfait are divine (we couldn't try the fruit tart as it had sold out already).
As this restaurant is close to our apartment, we returned the next night, and enjoyed the whole experience again. Comfort mains, delicious deserts and all in a very pleasant setting - just as good as the previous night!

Honestly my wife & I were getting tired of tangines but we still wanted something with unique Moroccan flare & this was it! This was the best restaurant we had eaten at in the 3 weeks we were in Morocco (we also ate at the pizza place in Chefchauoen that is rated #1). The location of this restaurant is perfect--great view & very tranquil. We had a plate with goat & it was so tender, moist, and delicious! The salad we had was amazing as well. Also, the waitress was so cute! She didn't speak much English so she made drawings for us!! This restaurant is a must-try!

I highly recommend this place. Escape the crowds of the Medina square and visit the beautifully decorated Molin' Arte. We sat in the sun on the front veranda and enjoyed a very peaceful lunch. The food was very tasty and far better than we found in the medina square. The service was lovely also. They also have a great selection of fresh fruit juices.

Firstly the place is made by an artist, creating décoration but also the hole place with such love and delicatness that you feel good, then comes some good unusual food in Chefchaouen, changing from usual tajines and couscous : gratin de chevreau, and other really greatly cooked meat and vegetables.
And try desserts!!!

really cute restaurant with lots of neat seating outside with your own private umbrella incuding a privacy curtain (as well as seating indoors up and down); very friendly staff with the only problem being an already limited menu with the local specialties not available. The concept/philosophy is to offer local and seasonal food but the reality was pizza. On a positive food note, the yogurt/honey/nut dessert was great and the pizza was good! Listen to the running water of the stream/spring with great views!
