The food here was great! Will eat here again on our next trip. Service was slow but the owner/ cook was trying to train his 14 year old daughter to waitress and it was not going well. Eventually she ended up in the back washing...More

Don't let the exterior keep you from this sparklingly clean restaurant. Authentic Moroccan food and the decor and ambience to go with it. Food made from scratch so it takes awhile from kitchen to table but well worth the wait. We asked the waiter what...More

A bit tired of the French Canadian fare, we found this hidden gem of a restaurant. Hummus appetizer with warm pita and couscous and tagines for dinner. Fairly inexpensive and tasty.

Food tasted great. Bring your own wine/beer. Server is nice but with one person cooking a full dinner with soup/appetizer and entree took about 2 hours. Got 4 stars for food taste/value.

My wife and I brought our newborn son and loved it. There was a group of 15 who came while we were there, with young children, so the review about no large groups and no kids is inaccurate. You just need to call ahead. The...More

The tajine here is incredible. The mint tea "Moroccan vodka" as the waiter said was delicious and the waiter was incredibly friendly. Lovely atmosphere and very fast service. Definitely make it a stop. Tip: they can serve alcohol but its BYOB

The dishes have great flavor although the portion sizes aren't as filling as other Quebec dishes. I would recommend a reservation as even if the restaurant isn't busy, the service is slower, so you may be denied a seat. Also, BYOB (there's a wine shop...More
