The concierge at our hotel told us we didn't want to go there. It's old he said. It's too old. Thank goodness we didn't listen to him. The old decor lends to the vibe and is part of this place's charm. The owner, who spoke English, helped us choose dishes from the menu and was super patient explaining different options... More

It is a recommendable restaurant near the Mohamed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, In the menu you can find typical moroccan food. The waiter was really professional and helped us with everything we needed

Old style restaurant with furniture from the fifties. The owner is very kind and makes you feel at home. Traditional Moroccan food very good

This little restaurant serves very descent couscous, tajines and other staples of traditional Moroccan cuisine. The service is very welcoming and attentive. Here you will also have a good choice of local wines. The restaurant was either decorated with the 1950s in mind or simply in the 1950s, but it's quite charming.

I agree that the service is good and the space is pleasing - though very quiet on the night we were there - but I thought the food was a little disappointing. I had chicken tagine which was a skinny chicken leg portion with almonds. It tasted like oily roast chicken with no other flavours, herbs, or spices added. Someone... More

This place seems stuck in the 1950's with its decor and attentive staff. Excellent Moroccan fair - pastillas and tajines. Decent Moroccan wines at good prices.

This pretty little restauarant is absolutely wonderful. After the staff at my hotel recommended it, I tried it and was thoroughly delighted by the quality of the food, the friendliness and professionalism of the waiter and the pleasant decor. It is unmissable if you're in Rabat, even worth making a special trip if you're nearby! The prices were very, very... More
