We had already read up about this place on TripAdvisor and it was all we hoped it would be . All the locals eat here and the staff are so friendly . Not a huge menu or fancy tourist place but you feel like your properly eating what the locals eat. Very clean and the food was cooked fresh. The... More

Great hidden jem for a quick lunch. The sausages are yummy and they give you a hotsauce dip thats great. For two meats, fries, rice, two cokes and a 1.5l water it came to 83 MAD. Delicious, fresh, and friendly service too! Highly reccomend

I've been walking the streets of Marrakech and it was quite awesome to find such a place near the touristic main square. If it seems local, then eat there, those are the words of wisdom someone said. Don't mind the appearance, step in, take a sit. Get yourself some olives (0,3 euro), a salade marocaine (0,5). Then choose between the... More

The restaurant is definetely the best I visited during my stay in Marroco. They offer several different Tajines and Couscous as well as meat, snacks and an amazing homemade yogurt. The pices are very decent, we spent around 100 Dirham for two and were barely able to finish all the food. The food tastes fantastic, some of the waiters speak... More

Dropped in here about 9pm on a Tuesday. It wasn't so busy with a few locals and a large group of young French students. Pretty basic setup with the ubiquitous feline dining companions and the food was excellent and really cheap. Morroccan salad, lamb tagine, small water and a tea for 50Dh/€5.

We just had lunch here. The food was delicious and the price was very inexpensive! Give it a try. The chicken skewers were my favorite. Very friendly staff, and convenient location.

We went here based on its Trip Advisor rating and I have to say that my heart sank a little when we arrived - it is not an appealing looking restaurant. Thank goodness we went in anyway! Incredibly friendly service, a mountain of olives bread and chilli sauce (inedibly hot to my palate, but fun to try) arrived quickly, and... More

Lovely food. really friendly staff members. will be using this place again as it's clean and good. I am staying in Morocco for few days and thinking to have my last supper here again, before I head back to UK.

Stopped in for lunch to escape the rain. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food we received was good. Ordered a chicken tagine and lamb couscous, both of which were tasty - although a bit more lamb would have been nice.
