It has been said already here, this is a home cooked Moroccan meal in a family home, and a delicious one at that! If you're looking for the fancy waiter and alcohol then you should look elsewhere. The menu is in French but easy to make out if you've brushed up a bit and there is a wait time as... More

We went to this restaurant twice. One time for lunch and one time for dinner. We had a great experience there. It's a family run restaurant. Yes, if one doesn't make a reservation a head of time, it can take a long time for them to cook. Because they start to cook your food after you order it (from scratch).... More

Led to this place by despair and by a probably interested local (it was a Sunday night and the town appeared deserted), they opened for us (it's a private apartment) we decided to sit down and wait. And wait we did. More than an hour to be served overpriced, overspiced food (you know the feeling of food going up and... More

It doesn't feel like a restaurant as there are no other customers and it feels like going to someone's home for a meal.The wait for food is very long as I supposed it's cooked from scratch.But the food is actually quite tasty,you can taste the 'home cooked' part.

We had dinner on a Friday when everything was closed. The place is not really a restaurant, the family working on it is living there or using it as the living room at least. The food was not bad, but it took exactly 45 minutes to bring the first dish, a salad! Furthermore the food was extremely expensive. Not recommended.

First thing first - this is a home-restaurant, when you are visiting, you are actually at someones home. This is amazing opportunity to see how actually moroccan families live and cook. Some complains about waiting time and there is an explanation - as this is a home-restaurant, they actually do not stock food for cooking. When you make your order,... More

Been there because recommended in our lonely planet -maybe not updated?!?! Unfortunately after a long wait - though we were the only customers - both meals, chicken tajine and kefta - were tasteless and dry. Restaurant looks oldish and a bit dusty, we were doubtful to enter there actually, and prices are not cheaper than elsewhere. Definitively better option to... More

To be honest- i don't know where to start. We had to wait over an hour in the icecold livingroom to get our food. We asked for some heating, but this was so weak, that it stayed cold all the time. Then the food was extremely bad: the vegetarian couscous had no seasoning at all -except salt and this way... More

We had a delicious lunch of kebabs and salad in this family's charming home. The food was deliciously, and quickly prepared for us. There were no other customers in the place. It was a treat to have a private meal.
