The king prawns (at 130 dirhams per plate at an average, not "$" price) were OK, though nothing to write home about. The entrecote however was undercooked. Maybe they do specialize in fish/seafood, as opposed to meat. Overall, not bad experience, though not up to...More

The restaurant only has a few tables, but it is very nicely decorated. The name already says it, it is cooked from the heart. We had a wonderful fish with many good side dishes. We can highly recommend the restaurant.

We looked for this restaurant because of the review and location. We thought it’s good but it was amazing! The fish and orange juice was fresh and we also tried seafood pastilla which was surprisingly delicious. The ambiance was relaxing.
