Wondered into el morrocco on a lazy Sunday evening, a nice and relaxing spot. Good beer and wine selection, the kebab was ok, not bad but didn't blow my mind either (salad which came with it was disappointing). Still a decent spot regardless

This is our third year of patronizing this restaurant. First off, we love the ambiance. Moroccan lamps, brass tables, comfy couches. Or, if you prefer, tables with chairs. We are not connoisseurs of Moroccan food...our one trip to Morocco was more of a nightmare than...More

I had the chicken kebab, which came with a nice chilled rice (maybe couscous)/vegetable salad, and some other cooked veggies. You need to order pita on the side for the excellent hummus. I took the waiter's suggestion of hot mint tea for my beverage, which...More

We've visited El Morocco a few times now, and each time we leave seriously impressed. It's a beautiful restaurant in a nice quiet part of town, with very friendly staff. My boyfriend loves their chicken cous cous, which is so similar to the the cous...More

Atmosphere, service, and food were all perfect. Every single thing we ordered (two lunchtime visits) was excellent, fresh, tasty and the location off a not-too-busy street near a pleasant square is also nice. Absolutely worth coming here after you've had your fill of Oaxacan food.
