This was our last stop in Las Palmas. The food is truly awesome. It's located a bit outside of the general touristic area. The personnel is kind and enthusiastic, it's a shame only one of them seemed to speak English. Otherwise a highly recommended stop.

We had lunch at this beautiful restaurant. Very friendly staff and a fantastic atmosphere. We ordered a vegetarian Tagine. A disaster: some boiled vegetables on a plate- abosolutely no resemblance of maroccan food. The spicy soft taste of a well cooked tagine was totally absent....More
