The restaurant had several kinds of couscous, tajines, and grilled dishes. Flavors were very good.Friendly waitstaff, and clientele seemed local (a good sign). You must bring your own wine, common in Montreal.

Malgrebian restaurant. Specialty are tajines. Great ambiance, you forget you are in Montreal for an hour or two. Food tastes totally different(very good)and setting brings you to another world.

I went there recently with friends for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, service & company. It was out of the ordinary as I didn't know what to expect but as mentioned thoroughly wonderful & delicious.

Just off St Denis & de Maisonneuve, this little restaurant is producing some fantastic Cous Cous and other "Maghreb" dishes. If you need (and you do!) lamb, chicken, and merguez on a bed of perfect Cous Cous, chick peas and vegetables....This is your place. Price-value...More

Interior was small, but passable. Food was copious but not amazing, One server for the whole place tried hard. Staff's kids running around everywhere even after 8pm on a summer Friday night. Promised entertainment never happened. No reason to return.More
