This is the first restaurant that my wife and I went to when we were dating. The food is delicious and the service is good.

Walked up and down Upper Street. A mate of mine checked as well. It's either vanished into the 4th dimension (this can happen in Islington) or it's closed. Probably closed.

You could easily walk past this place and not notice it - but if you feel like authentic Moroccan food then this is the place to go.

This may be North London but you could easily be forgiven for thinking you have been transported to North Africa when you step into Maghreb. A bit like setting foot in a souk with lots of Moroccan pottery and artefacts. Hoards of loyal Islington customers make this a popular North London hangout. What's cooking? Moroccan fare, of course. Mixed meze, spicy lentil and pumpkin tagine, vegetables couscous, aromatic duck served on a bed of couscous and beetroot salad, baghrir - a kind of pancake served with honey and butter and Moroccan coffee or mint tea.
