This restaurant was around the corner from the Riad where my husband and I stayed. I must admit I was initially put off by the guys outside and thought of it as a tourist trap but one of the guys was so charming we decided to give it a try...and I'm so glad we did! The food was delicious, it... More

They have very good menus for a reasonable price and are located at a good location (few minutes walk from Djemaa el fna if it's not too crowded in the streets). However, what really differentiates from other places is the awesome staff. We had many conversations with the staff standing outside. Would definitely go again for the food & a... More

Like many restaurants in the city, there are quite a few steps to climb to reach the venue, but it was worth it. We had live drumming while we ate and the food was good quality. Highly recommended.

Easy to find in Medina. Restaurant was extremely cold. Typical tourist place. People wearing coats indoors. Live music which was nice. Little on dark side. Mixed friendliness from staff. Food was ok. We ordered chicken and lamb skewers. Wanted to change the dishes served with fries for couscous or rice but waiter said it was not possible. Mint tea was... More

nice place, friendly staff. Had a tagine the first time, couscous the second - the food was very tasty. Just off the main square, far enough to not be complete tourist bait, it's well worth a visit.

Very nice Moroccan dishes and a good price for a 3 course meal, although the desserts are not very good. There is a small selection of desserts and they are pre-made, such as yoghurt. But still worth trying.

Good value for money. Live music. Nice place to eat. Had the beef tagine, veggie tagine and the chicken skewers. All v pleasant. Beef tagine tasted just like a beef stew. The aubergine salad was amazing, very delicious. Worth a visit.

We had been by this restaurant several times during our stay. Every time we passed someone was out front trying to direct us in. Finally on our last night we we didn't have dinner plans so we went in. The atmosphere was great with some local music that added to our experience. They offered a few fixed menus choices which...
