Wines served are nice and cocktails are patiently prepared. The best is the atmosphere which is comfy and fancy together nice jazzy music. I do not know for the food but it's worth a visit! Especially in a are filled with touristy bars.

You should avoid this place if you are looking for anything close to what one would eat in an authentic Moroccan restaurant. The starters were mixed. The scallops and the mozerrella were excellent. The veal was bland. The seafood tajine was good, the lamb disappointing....More
