This place served the best tagine in marrakesh, definitely recommend the lamb with vegetables as well as the beef option. The lunch portions are slightly smaller but is worth every penny! The morrocan pie was also surprisingly appetising, it is sweet and savoury at the...More

Had a vegetarian couscous and my partner a chicken couscous which were good. Not expensive. The older man (think the owner) speaks English, which is very rare in Morocco and especially with the elderly. No cards excepted as in most places.

If you pass by you definitely should stop an have something to eat. The price is amazing for what you get. The menu does not look to promising at first but it is really good. Very nice atmosphere! And you can get wine!

Pleasant and welcoming. We had lamb with plumbs. It was very tasty and strong lamb flavour. The man who served us was a nice man. We were served bread. We had a couple of beers as well.
