I went there for a dinner with my Mum. We have been incredibly (positively) surprised by the customer services provided first. Coats and scarves are taken off when entering in the restaurant. The waiter is here to help for anything, asking when do we want the food etc. He knows how to make customers happy. Adding to that the Couscous... More

The food is really good, especially the tagines. The size of those appear quite small but you'll won't leave hungry if you take a soup as starter. The price is relatively high but the food is worth it. Owner can be somewhat grumpy but not too bothersome.

If you like Moroccan food this is your place!! Food is authentic and very tasty. The space is beautiful, warm and well decorated. We tried the lamb tajin and the mixed grilled meat place. Both dishes were very good. They also have good wine. Perfect for a romantic dinner.

I loved the atmosphere: few people on a Tuesday night and a fast, appreciable service. We was received with a nice appetizers (olives and bread) and we ate then starters and a vegetarian couscous. At the end we were really full and satisfied, for a really honest price! I can't say nothing on the dishes because I'm not a Moroccan... More

So I went with 3 others friends to this restaurant because we wanted to try Moroccan cuisine. It looked in the beginning very cute and typical Moroccan. I think he was the owner but he was as well serving was, was ice cold, not warm and "mocking" us, did not feel welcome at all. The food we ordered was not... More

I'd never eaten Moroccan food before eating here. It was a great introduction. I got the fish of the day (cod with vegetables). It was served in some sort of hot ceramic bowl, which kept everything nice and warm. Also came with hummus, bread and olives, which was a nice surprise. Would definitely eat here again.

After searching initially for somewhere that did falafel we stumbled across this treasure. The interior was lovely and we easily found a table for four. The menu was great, food service was ok but the food in general was amazing. Very tasty and filling. Good flavour and choice all around. Great place to dine as a group.

We visited Paloma Blanca on the Jan Peiter hijstraat after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor and found really well prepared traditional Moroccan food. The lamb tagine was one of the best lamb dishes I've had and the starters are also excellent we also had for the main course the house special cous cous dish which did not disappoint to... More
