This is our favourite place to eat in Westward Ho! The food is really tasty and cooked to order. It is a small menu but everthing is perfectly cooked. Good for a 3 course meal or just popping in for coffee & cake. Very welcoming, friendly owner. Well worth booking a table and enjoying a leisurely lunch here.

I would thoroughly recommend this unique bijou restaurant. Booking ahead is best as limited covers. Great views over the sea add to the experience.

Small, (so book if it's busy!), but really nice atmosphere and authenitcally decorated Moroccan style inside - also my seat faced straight out to sea - the perfect view to accompany delicious Moroccan food. Joe the chef/owner was very friendly and enthuastic about his food - and took the time to talk to us and tell us all about his ingredients, and spices - which are all sourced from Morocco. I cant wait to go back!

We had a gorgeous meal last Saturday. We pre booked on the premise that our chosen meals would be ready to serve at 19.00 as we needed to be somewhere else at 20.00. The food was ready when we arrived. Fantastic hospitality, and both meat and veggie dishes were sumptuous. We could have been in Morocco, and were treated to a spectacular sunset.
We will definitely be returning.

This restaurant is not like any other restaurant I've been to before. I can understand why some of the previous reviews were so disappointed ... it's probably because they just didn't "get it"! It’s all about expectations. Don’t expect 5* instant service. The whole concept of this restaurant is unlike any other ... the chef / owner Joe and his wife Ann-Marie are running a very small and intimate, individual restaurant Moroccan. They are busy in the kitchen cooking everything from scratch in a small space so if you know this and go with this in mind - forget that it's a restaurant and imagine you're in their home in Morocco and then you'll "get it"!

The menu is select and small but with enough variety. It's tasty, fresh and healthy food. Our 12 year old daughter who is veggie had the vegetable terrine (normally doesn't eat spicy food and loved it).
All served on round tables with amazing view of the seafront and we experienced a beautiful sunset in August.

We would highly recommend you book a table and judge for yourselves.
