The Menara is a moroccan restaurant which serves excellent food. The couscous and tajines are delicious and I always felt like a stuffed turkey after having dinner there because their servings are huge.

We saw this restaurant while walking around the village and, having looked at the menu, booked a table for lunch on Sunday. It was quiet when we arrived around 12:30 but very quickly filled up, with all the tables pre-booked. The staff were friendly & efficient and the food was good & copious (we left with a doggy bag).

We’ve just moved to the Milly area and having eaten some excellent Maghreb meals in France we decided to try La Menara. What a disappointment! My couscous meanara avec 4 viandes was bland tasteless fare. A stingy portion of couscous served in a bowl and the selection of meats was meagre: one solitary burnt merguez, tiny overcooked kebab d’agneau, dried-out... More

the locals seem happy enough - it's busy all the time. Clearly they have never tasted decent tagine or couscous; prices seem OK until you taste the food. avoid.

The food is excellent. I'm not use to eat food from Morocco but I tried the Brique to start then a Coucous. Everything was great.

Choose this restaurant because it was the only one open on Sunday night in September. We had difficulty ordering (understanding) due to *my* poor standard of French. There was no language issues when booking with the lady Saturday night. The menu is in French only but the food arrived in style and tasted great and I recommend the Couscous Grillade.... More
