We really liked this place, very authentic and cosy restaurant, the French chef was super friendly and staff were very welcoming. The food is tasty and price is ok (around 300MAD per person for 2 courses with wine) for the quality you get. We would def. eat here again!

Our family of 3 had dinner here. It is an inviting small restaurant. Our server was so friendly & we enjoyed the wood fireplace by our table. The chef wrote out the evening meal on the chalkboard & personally went over all the dishes. We had amazing food! The appetizer array included a variety of seafoods and all three of... More

I am very grateful to those who have recommended this place, because you would not stumble on it by chance. I would put it up there with one of the best meals I have ever had. Exceptionally fresh fish and shellfish, carefully crafted. Very good wine and reasonably priced. Cute little restaurant. Lots of nooks and crannies. Serge will come... More

Don't be put off by the dark passages you walk along to get here, ring the bell and you are welcomed into a warm, subtly lit space and shown to your table. The menu is short and varies with what is available in the market, but the chef works magic and we hugely enjoyed the food we ate.

The food is very average, the service is OK, and the prices are super high. Try many other places instead...

Worth finding! Once there, Ring the door bell and you are welcomed in to a very friendly dining area. After sorting drinks with a very friendly waiter. Serge the Chef then takes over and runs through the menu with you. We chose the "taster starters" and we were not disappointed. The rest of the meal including pudding and wine was... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a lady on a cookery class we took and it was a great call! Bit tricky to find but once you are on the right track it is well sign posted. It is in a lovely small riad and probably sits only about 20 covers at most. The menu is small but excellent, with... More

Whilst the restaurant is down side alleys, it's clearly signposted so not hard to find. We were seated in the delightful courtyard surrounded by well chosen decorations. We chose the Kemia (tapas) to share for entree which was amazing. Basil soup in a tiny bowl, with mostly seafood offerings including a small oyster tagine which was superb. For mains we... More

A real find, don't be put off by the dark alley, it is worth it. Wonderful mixture of flavours. Serge the chef was charming and so enthusiastic, he created the most amazing dishes from fresh local ingredients. Delightful surroundings a real oasis. Cash only.
