Situated in a historic location, the charm of this place works well, although nothing impressive about its decoration. While I have to say I don't like Moroccan food, I found that food was average here. I didn't find the prices to be too much, unlike...More

Had high expectations from this place, that might be the reason was not impressed. Chicken tagine is not bad but I had much better ones in Morocco. The place itself is nice

We went for a quick lunch, the bread dipped in an amazing tomato salsa was subtly spiced and perfectly matched the sesame bread.
