Easy to find in Medina. Restaurant was extremely cold. Typical tourist place. People wearing coats indoors. Live music which was nice. Little on dark side. Mixed friendliness from staff. Food was ok. We ordered chicken and lamb skewers. Wanted to change the dishes served with fries for couscous or rice but waiter said it was not possible. Mint tea was... More

nice place, friendly staff. Had a tagine the first time, couscous the second - the food was very tasty. Just off the main square, far enough to not be complete tourist bait, it's well worth a visit.

Very nice Moroccan dishes and a good price for a 3 course meal, although the desserts are not very good. There is a small selection of desserts and they are pre-made, such as yoghurt. But still worth trying.

Good value for money. Live music. Nice place to eat. Had the beef tagine, veggie tagine and the chicken skewers. All v pleasant. Beef tagine tasted just like a beef stew. The aubergine salad was amazing, very delicious. Worth a visit.

We had been by this restaurant several times during our stay. Every time we passed someone was out front trying to direct us in. Finally on our last night we we didn't have dinner plans so we went in. The atmosphere was great with some local music that added to our experience. They offered a few fixed menus choices which...

Like several other reviewers, we tried this place after passing it every day (and night) and striking up a running chat with one of the genuinely charming touts outside. I'm glad he was there because we ended up eating here twice during the week, enjoying both meals thoroughly. It's a very attractive room, upstairs, with the decor and (excellent) live... More

We spent a week in Medina and from all the restaurants we visited this was by far the best. The entrance is not verry appealing but we went there since it was recommended by our host. The service was good, the music helped a lot with the local feeling ... and the food was delicious. As in several places in... More

We past this place on the way to and from our Riad the first evening in Marrakech and the nicely dressed and friendly guys at the front made an impression so we decided to check them out for our first meal. The food was great (had the chicken pastilla and lamb almond and prune tagine) and the live music was... More

We visited this restaurant three times during our visit. The staff are very friendly. The food is delicious. It is a good value for money. The thing that makes this place great however are the musicians. The music is fantastic. Highly recommended.
