Incredible variety and atmosphere. We spent hours here and enjoyed every minute. The service and decor were also tops.

The food was very good. Lots of wine, not so much beer. The staff was polite but a little stand off ish. I would go back though.

I have been here multiple times over the course of the last 4-5 years. It has always been excellent. On my last visit I had the free range chicken and it was absolutely delicious! Excellent wine, drink, and beer list as well. You can't go wrong eating and drinking here. It does get noisy inside, so if hearing is an issue this may not be the best choice.

The tapas and entrées here are AMAZING! Maybe I got lucky, but my bf and I ordered 5 different tapas and an entrée each and we couldn't stop eating! It is some of the best restaurant food we have ever had and I have been to more than a few countries. Needless to say we had left overs for breakfast!

We had duck, lamb, pheasant and pork... I have no idea how anyone can give this place a lacklustre review! To top everything off, the ambience is wonderful. They have this cozy, romantic Moroccan setting in a quiet, low key environment. My only regret is that I tried this on our last night in Asheville. I am going back to Asheville soon and will be eating at this place every night!

I told the server that if I ever opened a restaurant I will steal his chef!

I loved the looks of this place from the reviews. It had snowed, so we walked, and there were not many there. Our wait person was nice, not really informative, but we figured out what we might like, and ordered. We both ordered drinks, and though the price would have been OK had they had any liquor in them, they were pricy without. I seldom drink and don't like the taste of strong liquor, and mine was too weak for me. The food however was great. We had never had tapas, and the broccoli sprouts, the chicken, everything was delicious. I would try it again.
