Sure, we saw the prices were higher than usual in this area, but when the quality is good and you have something special to celebrate, that's no problem. But is it naive to think that these higher prices also indicate that the service and quality of the food is good (or better)?
The taste was bad, please do not order de chicken kebab, or swordfish, it is simply a rape of good food. The wines and water are much more expensive than the restaurants across the street and you have to ask for a cooler more than twice!
Next door there is a 'waterpipe'restaurant which is in some way connected with tha'am. I agree, it is not my piece of cake, but even then, does it have to smell so badly?
Normally I do not write these kind of critics, but after last night I strongly feel the urge to warn other people for this poor excuse for a restaurant

The food was very nice, the couscous portion looked quite small but actually was just right. The waiters were lovely, the only thing is that the service was quite slow and we didn't get an explanation, but the food definitely made up for it.

Some of our friends liked that place so much they went there 3 times in 4 nights!
And I reckon that the friendliness of the owner, the unusual setting (it looks like Morocco inside), and obviously the very delicious food, make this place a nice restaurant.
However, for the quantity and the price (and a 3 eur coperto charge per person, the highest I've seen in 8 days in Sicily), also considering the other good restaurants around (Syrah, San Vito a tavola to name a few), I would recommend this place if you're looking for something a bit different.

Watch out! The couscous meal is very, very small and dry (no vegetables or something!) . 100 grams of couscous and one little piece of baccelau: E13! The 4 taste couscous (E16) is a good and fine portion. The problem is at the end ... E3 coperto PER PERSON! In the menu it is mentioned as only E3,- so after all, you pay a fortune for a simple meal. We paid E42 for the two of us (while we skipped the E6 glass of wine ...). It's a pitty, because we were really looking forward for this restaurant, after all those pasta and pizza, now some real sicilian couscous. Unfortunately....

Went with a few friends for cous cous in the Bedouin tent adorned outside restaurant area. Good food had by all - I started with octopus carpaccio - pretty plate of food and very tasty. Followed up with 4 types of cous cous taster which was fab. Everyone enjoyed the food - mainly the different types of couscous, but also crusted tuna and a great mixed salad. Lovely service. Nice chilled wine too to match the ambience and setting - give it a go!
