I chose vegetables with hummus, picante and pita bread. The couscous and huge portions of vegetables were terrific. The atmosphere, sitting on the floor and all the Marakesh amenities were fabulous. The hostess (Mother) was absolutely charming!

This place is very unique in San Cristobal because of its middle eastern/Mediterranean cuisine and music and it's "sit on the floor" dining. The owner is absolutely wonderful and attentive. The food is very authentic and the ambience is "laid back." It's a great way...More
