Fancied trying some north African food and was not disappointed by this restaurant. We had a tagine, a couple of kebabs and a couscous dish, which was plenty for 3 people. Lamb was beautifully tender. Would recommend fully.

The staff are very pleasant, I always feel welcome. If you fancy a break from the usual fayre, visit this place. The food is really very good, good portions, and fresh. In fact, I try to visit every week now, which isn't doing my waistline any good! The Turkish Coffee is pretty good too.. You will notice when cruising this... More

North African restaurants are a staple of France and I always enjoy having one when I visit France. The style is simple and an excellent one rarely stands out too much but a bad one does. This was very much a good one. Excellent service, happy to accommodate our sleeping baby in the evening. Appeared busy with reservations and a... More

The food was yummy, portions were large, wait staff was friendly and the place was unbeatable. When we wanted to try something non-French while staying in Versailles, this seemed like a great option. And like the reviews said, it delivered. In the mood for some Moroccan, try this out.

Went here with folks who'd never had Moroccan food. This made for a nice diversion from typical French food. The tangines (lamb and chicken and fish) were superb, and the Moroccan rose wines were perfect and inexpensive (19 euros). The servers were helpful and friendly. I'd go back in a heartbeat. A great value!

This restaurant was our first choose while staying in Versailles, and it was the best choice we made for dinner during the entire stay. We ate here numerous times, and all the food was superb. The staff was friendly and timely. We enjoyed the tajines, couscous, and the anise bread. We also liked the Moroccan wine suggested for us. It... More

The chicken Tagines are wonderful, and they use only free range chicken. A big plus. The service was friendly, recommendations good - we could not fault it. We live in France (in the Dordogne) and to find something so different is a treat. They also do a vegetarian couscous and various other veggie options. The spices and herbs used are... More
