Really special food in a wonderful setting. Simply delicious. A lovely stroll along the beach from Sidi Kaouki, great service and the best meal we ate out in the area.

We loved the location of this restaurant, remote enough to feel you are miles away from it all but still easy to reach with a private or a taxi.

We had a great lunch here and a very nice walk on the beach. We were tipped by Dominique of Riad Baoussala. She was so kind to drive us there. Food was good and the relaxed and remote atmosphere is very pleasant.

Excellent restaurant run by charming French lady, serving wonderful fresh fish in interesting ways. Spectacular beach setting, but quite difficult to find down a very rough track, but well worth the effort
