Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Friendly and helpful staff but expensive and definitely not traditional Moroccan cuisine. Not having mezzes in a Lebanese restaurant was a miss. We ordered a "Moroccan" couscous and although the taste was "descent", it has nothing of traditional Moroccan. The meat here is served in...a dark gravy sauce (with potatoes!!!😱) and the couscous has large grains infused in (I believe) cumin. Very very far from traditional Moroccan couscous. We were the only people in the restaurant and the waiting time to get the dishes was extremely long. Again, not a bad place but needs improvement.More

The best Lebanese food so far ! Extremely warm welcome. I come here frequently and every time my friends and I have the best experience. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu; everything is delicious, fresh, and authentic. Not to mention the presentation...is stunning!! The atmosphere is also really nice, you feel at home and relaxed when you are here. Overall, the food is amazing,Highly recommend the mixed grill and the hummus, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the location is very accessible! Doesn't get better than this if you ask me! I will never stop recommending this restaurant to my friends and family.More

Got together with two other couples so had booked a table for 6. After we were shown to our table no one came to take our order for what seemed like ages. They said their tap water was not drinkable but could only provide small...bottles of still water so we ended up paying E14 for a few bottles! Madness! One of our party did eventually get a glass of tap water which tasted fine. The menu is very expensive for what you get and many of the dishes lacked flavour. Even the pitta bread did not taste freshly made.More

Can not speak highly enough of this place . 4 of us had a meal here last night and the food is fantastic. Atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. Staff were first class. Honestly can’t say a bad word about the place. Just go and see...for yourself. Also you can bring your own bottle so if you are like us and enjoy wine with your meal it makes a night out a lot cheaper.More

Really nice food. The lamb tagine is cooked to perfection, the lamb was very tender and fell off the bone. Good portions, you won't be left hungry!

Im not someone to normally write reviews. Was recommended this place by one of my colleagues. The staff were extremely hospitable and patient with us as we took some time to decide on our order. The lamb tagine with prunes and almond is a burst...of flavours! The meat is so tender. Check this little gem when you need a little escape from the cold and the grey of the city. The exotic interiors with colourful hanging lamps make this place an excellent place for a dinner with friends or a romantic date.BYOB helps keep it affordable.More

As soon as you walk in, you know this is going to be an amazing restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere, cosy, spacious and comfortable seating.Come hungry and leave happy,i had a lamb tagine was tender and delicious and the meat melted away - gorgeous. We had some...cold and hot starters which were also superb. Even the harira soup was obviously home made and special. The Kenafeh cheese and baklava with pistachios was I imagine typically Lebanese and delicious. The service was attentive yet discrete and relaxed, even though they were very busy and a shout out to Ali and Wess for the brilliant service we recieved.The décor and the atmosphere genuinely made us feel that we were in Morocco. The Moroccan tea we had with the meal and the Turkish coffee we had at the end (never had before and I can highly recommend) complemented the meal. We were treated so well that when we left, we felt like we had been for a meal at a friend's house. Superb!More
