Great atmosphere, service and food. We tried the lamb and beef tajins that were the best that I've ever tried and a plate with fish that was too chili. The price of the tajins are around 100-130 Dirhams

Roof terrace is lovely and and lovely place to relax away from the madness of the Medina. The food was pretty good and the service was excellent with friendly staff who took time to talk to you and make you feel welcome.

We went here for dinner and had pasta cabonara and pasta with shrimp. The dishes tasted good and were well made. The vaitors were nice and helpful. The air of the restaurant was lovely. We would go there again.

We had pastas for the kids which were great. Burrata and carpaccio were very good as well. The Harira soup was outstanding and a must try if you’re in the mood. Great for a lazy afternoon escape from the souks.

Stopped for a drink and snack while walking around the Médina. Reasonably priced drinks (wine,beer, cocktails etc.) and snacks. Comfortable lounge area on the terrace. Overall a nice place to hangout outside of the chaos with some beers or wine with a nice terrace.

We were going to this restaurant to taste some Arab/Moroccan food, but the menu mainly consisted of Italian dishes. The Moroccan food we selected is not special but was tasty. Service is very good and the atmosphere is very nice. There is a large indoor...More

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
