This is a family restaurant in the truest sense of the word. You are actually in someone's home, with Mom cooking in the kitchen, the son waiting on tables in the large dining area, and a sweet toddler who might peek out once or twice....More

As we turned into the Medina, the alley way narrowed. To our right, there wasa little sign (unlit) that said “Restaurant Ya Hala”. The door was shut...and we thought damn, it’s closed. We lifted the Fatimah’s Hand and knocked on the door....behold, the door opened...More

This was by far the best vegetarian tajine I ate during my trip in morocco. The Mama is the chef and she is the best! The waiter speaks english and is very lovely! Furthermore, you get mint tea for free.

Huge portions of authentic home cooked meals. Best couscous we had in morocco after two and a half weeks. Highly recommend the tfaya and chicken. They are cooked to order so it is not a speedy place, but pleasant and clean.

Probably one of our best meals in Morocco- home made couscous from a restaurant out of the basement of a family house. Kind of hard to find but worth looking for!
