Service was courteous and prompt. The taouk is fantastic as are the spicy potatos (batata harra.) Serves alcohol. Perfect view onto the citadel. Portions just right, however not expensive but not average either.

What a beautiful view with super yummy food. The BBQ fish is delicious. Appetizers were very tasty. The view on the beach was extra ordinary. We all were taken by the gorgeous setting and great food and service

The restaurant is located overlooking the sea with amazing view, the terrace is very beautiful to be when the weather allows. The food is more than delicious, large variety of fish. You choose from fish on display and choose how to have it cooked.
