A nice elegant restaurant with traditional Moroccan food. I was pleased to have the traditional Tajine and Couscous. If you enjoy spicy food don't forget to ask for harissa to add to your dish since they are prepared slightly milder in taste taking into consideration the Spanish intolerance to spicy and hot food.

I'll admit that my view of Moroccan cuisine was shaped several years ago during a stint backpacking round the country with friends when I was 18.
