Success in my hunt for a late night nibble, and a desert. After the previous escapade in exploring the local eateries and an EPIC fail , I was a little reluctant to venture out again. I am so glad I had my arm twisted to join friends for a late night drink and nibbles here. The restaurant overlooks the lagoon,... More

Don't go there for lunch or dinner... The food is really not good and the ambiance is absolutely poor. I heard that this place is famous at midnight to for fishermen who want to drink beer... I understand why...

between us we had the beef carpacccio, fish carpaccio, steak with pepper sauce and chicken with cream and mushrooms. The carpaccios were both just awesome - delicate seasoning, right temperature, just great. Steak was cooked uniformly through and they seemed to have taken out the cream from the chicken dish (I think they struggled to understand what "gluten free" meant,... More

Definitely sit on the terrace!!! The view is lovely and peaceful...at least it was at lunch! From an array of seafood, I chose the grilled lobster or rather langouste which came cooked to perfection...i really enjoyed it as well as the chat with the owner Jocelyne! The seafood in Dakhla is superior and my langouste was sweet and very fresh....must... More

We had high expectations. The service was good.The menu had a large variety with very high prices but unfortunately the quality of the food did not live up to the expectation. The fish soup was tinned, the salad was tasteless. The risotto was acceptable. The desert was nice. Overall, disappointing and expensive.

Food: The best in Dakhla. Perfectly cooked shrimp and fish. Flavors in the prawn avocado salad were perfectly balanced. The seafood stew had a unique mix of spice, garlic and moroccan flavors. Fresh baked bread that was rich and crusty. I often try to stay away from bread and I ate the whole thing here with the olive spread. Dessert:... More
