Had been there last year and the experience then was pleasant but last Saturday was simply a nightmare. Way too crowded barely space to walk between tables and of course hearing everybody conversation. Ordered simple couscous served after 45 mins... And with overcooked merguez ,literally black and the server had the nerve to say it was normal for a la... More

I go back to this place each month with my best friend to have dinner or a drink and chat for a few hours! Alway take the house wine, and it's pretty good. The food is also good, especially the couscous. Mint tea is also good, and poured the real way. I think the price is quite ok, although compared... More

Nice place, but very average food in Louvain-La-Neuve. I would recommend this if you need a quick dinner with friend and have no particular expectation as to the food that is nonetheless ok.

Very, very good food also by Belgian standards. Belgian/French/Moroccan food. Everything were perfectly prepared - scallops that were boiled + fried exactly so little as they need to be. Meat exactly as wished - and everything full of taste. Prices at same level as any Belgian medium restaurant, which means very cheap for a Scandinavian

I eat in this restaurant quite often when I am in Belgium on business. I have eaten there many times before it changed management and I have eaten there twice since. Last night was the second time. There were 5 in our party. The table was reserved as expected. The service was good and the food as good was always.... More

Two years ago, this was a place with expensive but worth paying food. Now I would not enter in this place not even if invited. The quality of the food is way below the price.

I enjoyed the chicken tajine with lemon (17€) in this very cosy restaurant. The menu offers North African dishes. My colleagues enjoyed their couscous. Reservation went flawlessly. Seating and service were rapid and friendly. I recommend.

We went there on a Saturday lunch with about 25 persons. Among us, there were small children (max 3 years). A special room was available with toys (and "Tintin" on a big screen) and a babysitter was there to look for them during the whole time we stay there. So, we could enjoy our lunch - typical Moroccan food- fully,... More

Very good Marrocan menu, at a relative good price, and an agreeable atmosphere. I ate a Taijine of chicken with figues and aubergine. It was just delicious. Very nicely cooked and with a rich tasting combination. My friend chose a vegetarian cous-cous that was also very nicely cooked. The choices of tees as well as desserts are also very good.... More
