Ate here for my birthday and liked the lamb tagine. My partner enjoyed a vegetarian tagine. The atmosphere is unusual but enjoyable. The service was good- very friendly staff. Only fault for me was that the seats were not well suited to the tables which...More

Had a wonderful evening in this restaurant, enjoying the friendly service, attentive and with a smile, and of course, the food. When you're tall, like me (1.93m), you might want to consider taking your seat on the couches instead of the chairs, in order to...More

Came for early dinner restaurant quiet, atmosphere would be better later I'm sure. Lamb tagine delicious, my partner had fish & although good, the portion size was very different to the meat option. Staff really helpful & friendly will come again.

We loved our trip here. The inside decor is very calming and offers something different and authentic. We went quite early so the restaurant was empty but soon filled up. The waiter was attentive and friendly, making jokes with us and making sure we were...More
