I love this place - it's a current favourite no doubt. Great food, good service, lovely garden terrace, a real go-to place when we want to treat ourselves or have people visiting.

This place serves Mediterranean cuilsine in a warm and charming setting with a staff who will make you feel at home. You can chose from fish, meat and pasta dishes. A really nice place.

My new boss suggested we have a meet and greet at Picolo's last week so my wife and I met him there. The staff was very attentive and never far away. The food was fantastic. The location was easy to find and parking wasn't too difficult. I can't wait to go back.

Nice garden, nice waiters, extensive wine list however. One dish stands out: the sea bass carpaccio is a killer!(in the appetizers) Please walk away from the fish cannellonis, awful texture and tasteless. The seafood gratin could have been good...without this local horrible cheese as a topping. The sole meunière swims in an oily plate that would turn any normal French... More

Very nice place with a shadowed terrace and isolated of street life (music a little loud). Very nice food and price ok. Service efficient and fast.

Overall, a very pleasant experience. The seafood is cooked well, and the menu is rather diverse. That said, the service is typical for Morocco - it can take a while. The atmosphere though is very serene, a very lovely garden. The real challenge is the lack of parking and some of the street noise from busy Mohammed VI Avenue.

I have to admit after few rounds of restaurants around the city, there is no doubt that Morocco has one of the best restaurants in whole Africa. Probably due to the french influence of culinary delight but have to say they know there move around the food to give you the best experience. Go with Chefs recommendations & dont skip... More

We only ate here once on our trip but both myself and my colleague where impressed. The staff are very attentive and well trained. The menu is what you would expect of a French/International restaurant, the steak was very good. The creme brûlée for desert was a particular favourite! Starters range from 60-120dh and mains are from 150-300dh
