We love everything about the restaurant.. ambience.. decor .. food and service. The owner Ghalib recommended the dishes and we were pleasantly surprised with the choice. It was different and delicious. See photos of dishes.. sorry can't remember the names .. oh the tea and dessert was excellent too. The decor is authentic and of course very moorish and middle...

This restaurant is little jewel we discovered a few years ago in Toledo, and have returned to since then. It transports you to the Middle East, with its dim lighting, Arabic music, the smell of sheesha, ethnic fabrics and the beautiful date palm that grows in the courtyard. The food is tasty, the mint tea is delicious, and the host... More

This is a great hang out for kids or those who want to smoke. The positive reviews cannot possibly be for the food. The host was doing his very best but what the restaurant offers has no hope. We settled on a plate of a variety of tapas and what we got were two types of samosas. The place looks... More

We were looking for a meal with vegetarian options on a cool Sunday afternoon at 5:30 PM, and knew the Posada (directly across the street from the Cristo de la Luz mosque) was open. They did not have a full menu that early in the evening, but we had several appetizers d a felafel plate and they were fine. This... More

This is a very special place! We went there for dinner and enjoyed it a lot. The atmosphere is very nice and special (with a lot of love for details), and they have a beautiful patio. The food was delicious! We had a paste made from red paprika, which was extremely good, and I have never had anything like that... More

Nothing to do with Arabic food. Bad quality ingredients. Burnt oil in the bad tasting falafel. Supermarket homous and the fatoush is lettuce with feta cheese which must be a joke. Can be more honest and say what he can make and not put an imaginary menu. Bad service. Coke is not fizzy seems open in fridge for days. Cheap... More

We spent some of our best evenings in Toledo in this cafe. The food is good, great for the price and the couple that runs it very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Can highly recommend,

The aubergine and tomatoes were excellent as was the tea. The host selected the food for us and was very charming, he spoke excellent English. He has a relaxed and laid back attitude to life! We tried to visit the restaurant last night and found it closed. On visiting today we mentioned it to him he seemed surprised then remembered... More

Hard to find healthy and vegetarean food in Spain. That's why when I travel there I always tend to find if there are middle eastern restaurants in the area. We were not disappointed with this one- great food, plenty of veg options, great service, friendly owner, and a very cozy atmosphere with beautiful oriental decor. Highly recommended
