This was a unique experience. A relatively small restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere and outstanding food. On the night we visited, there was unfortunately only one person serving as both waiter and cook, so we had to be patient. He did a great job, however,...More

Cleanliness, great host and pleasant atmosphere pushes rating to 4. Not wanting to eat on the touristy street, but on a bit of a budget, we stepped into a place that was not Quebec. Homey enviroment and the chef owner is extremely pleasant. However on...More

We travelled in Morocco earlier this year and the food at this restaurant was better....not as fatty and definitely had more flavour and was delicious. We went back a second night to get some more of the yummy lamb tajine with prunes to take back...More

The owner was both server and chef that day and did a fine job of balancing everything all by himself. The food was fresh and tasty, but not memorable. The decor and ambience was simple and comfortable. We would return for the owner's welcoming and...More

This is a small restaurant that does not serve alcohol. They invite you to bring your own. Fair enough. My wife and I ordered one appetizer and one entree to share. The restaurant was almost empty. The waiter/owner informed us that we needed to order...More

Don't let the exterior keep you from this sparklingly clean restaurant. Authentic Moroccan food and the decor and ambience to go with it. Food made from scratch so it takes awhile from kitchen to table but well worth the wait. We asked the waiter what...More

A bit tired of the French Canadian fare, we found this hidden gem of a restaurant. Hummus appetizer with warm pita and couscous and tagines for dinner. Fairly inexpensive and tasty.

Food tasted great. Bring your own wine/beer. Server is nice but with one person cooking a full dinner with soup/appetizer and entree took about 2 hours. Got 4 stars for food taste/value.
