It is a small restaurant and, as it is popular, I advise to either book or arrive early. The couscous dish is to die for and the mojitos delicious.

The food here was lovely - best Moroccan food I’ve had. Staff were friendly. We were a party of 7 and everyone throughly enjoyed their meals - meat and vegetarian, tagines and tapas. Good sized portions. A little pricey but the quality matched it. Recommended.

Went to Mauresque with friends for a wine and some tapas, the food was delicious and the wine selection was well. The service was good though the waiters seem busy when we visited.

Hi there, I'm afraid we do not serve churros with chocolate sauce. But we serve delicious 70% dark chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream ;)
