The staff were very friendly and helpful. The squid lovely and fresh but the prawn tangine was very good. Would eat here again if staying for longer in Asilah.

This is a Moroccan restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine. The owner of our inn, Dar Azouaia, called to tell the chef we were coming; he had a just-landed, whole turbot ready to grill for us when we arrived. The previous day we had brochettes of swordfish that were wonderful.

We had a great meal here -- fresh grilled sole, octopus, prawns + salads and delicious watermelon to end. The place is right on the street running along the ocean and must be very crowded during the summer. But we almost had it to ourselves. The waiter was very nice and funny and spoke good, colloquial English. Would definitely recommend.... More

This has been around a long time and it still is good. It is delightfully informal and quite a few of the locals use the place for a discreet tipple.
