Great food, very welcoming friendly staff. Moroccan music and floor show make it a great night out. Try the ginger Mohito!

One thing I found in Morocco is that things are defective in some way. I'm not sure why, but quality control seems to be a foreign concept. This restaurant is a nice exception to that developing perception. There was thought and attention to detail. The employees were the happiest I've seen. I ordered the calamari in a cream mushroom sauce... More

Halfway down a side alley, we found this unassuming restaurant. We hadn't made a reservation but wasn't a problem as we were led upstairs to a beautifully decorated room. The service was fantastic throughout with Didier the owner stopping by to say hello. The food was incredible too, alongside live music downstairs - a great spot for dinner!

Very busy, quirky restaurant with interesting art adorning the walls. It has the traditional central courtyard with an open kitchen and tables, but also individual rooms opening onto the courtyard and upstairs onto the balcony. The food is modern, well cooked and beautifully presented - and is a pleasing fusion of traditional Moroccan and French. There was live music every... More

This was a last minute hope that they could fit us in, we went early and thank goodness they could. The reviews do not do them justice. The staff are very compassionate about their food and restaurant. All the dishes were explained to us and they certainly delivered on flavour. Thank your for fitting us in, it was a very... More

Was looking for a place with live entertainment and this was perfect, there was a live band playing music, then a fire show and a magician came to our table. The atmosphere was great. The restaurant itself had some amazingly decorated rooms and great artwork. For the best view of the show you need to sit downstairs. If your upstairs... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was good, the setting really unique, eating surrounded with lots of art and arty bits and pieces. The magician was fun, our daughter loved him, unfortunately we didn't get to see the fire show as we had to leave as She was falling asleep at the table. Will definitely return next time we come...
