I was traveling with my sister, the hotel near by recommended this place for dinner. We had a late dinner around 9 p.m
The staff was very welcoming they and getting a table was no problem! There was a bit of waiting time before we got the menu and something to drink, but after the appetisers the service was good and the staff attentive. Music is calming, in between they had belly dancers which was very nice and gave the atmosphere a bit of spice! The interior was very well done and high standard.
Food: I had a poultry, chicken skrews with herbs and my sister a lamb dish. Chicken was a bit dry as there where no sauce , the lamb dish was nicely done. The picture is of the chicken dish.
They serve alcohol here, we had a bottle of Moroccan red wine which was ok.
Dress code: is ranged between casual- casual smart
Prices: a bit expensive, you can expect to pay around 300-400 Dhm per person.
Staff: one person spoke a bit English, otherwise mostly French or Arabic
All in all happy with this place, I recommend a visit here.

This is one of the restaurants of the Hotel we are staying and I must say we did a great choice by having our first dinner here. (we walked along the pier to see what was around us - but have to say no other place was so pleasing - so we turned around to try this place) From the guy who welcomes you in to the belly dancers this place is a definitely must try! We opted for the sweet & spicy pigeon pastilla - which we shared as a starter - this was delicious and exquisite the sweet taste balanced the spicy part. As a main we took the lamb shoulder for 2 and boy did we not regret it! Its a massive plate to endeavor between 2 completed with rice & couscous and vegetables + sprinkled half almonds which were oh so crunchy. The lamb was very tender & could cut into it with a fork. Service was impeccable, waiter topping us wine & water as soon as glass seemed to be empty. The fresh warm bread was also very good. Finished it off with desserts which were good but nothing to write about. Will definitely return tonight to try other dishes.

Esquisite restaurant
waiter uniform is what you expected just perfect
but the waiter we had was somehow lacking is service because were we 2 female colleagues and we had to return a bottle of wine.
This was a bit sad considering the price we pay and the place we were at. The mood of the evening was great and it finish with belly dancers for the men but no show for the women at least some male musicians will have do right. I recommand you go and have the big shoulder lamb something i didnt order because of my friend who didnt feel to eat that much but the lamb shoulder will have been more tender than the brochette.

We ate here as we were staying in the attached hotel. Food was yummy, service was okay. We went early in the eve but were the only people in the restaurant the entire time which was odd. It had a good variety of classic Moroccan dishes which was nice! I would go back

As we wanted to taste moroccan food, the hotel recommended us this restaurant. No regret! We have enjoyed our dinner. The food was good and the service excellent.
