This is a very nice looking place and the service was very good. My review of the food is just average. Prices were also very high.

This is a place you want to avoid. The prices are out of this world and food is very sub-par. You can literally get better Harira in the medina for 10 DH and they charge 50 DH. The prices are the most expensive I have seen in Rabat, and the sick thing is that they even charged 10 DH for... More

The restaurant was very close to our hotel so it was a convenient walk. We went with a small group and was seated promptly. The waitstaff were very friendly and attentive.

We tried La Menora because it was walking distance from our hotel and the TA reviews were good. We left disappointed with the quality of the food. The full (quite extensive) menu was not available on the mid-week night we visited, but we had no problem finding desirable dishes. For entrees, we had the beef cigars - very good, and... More

On a business trip to Rabat, I was told that I could not leave if I did have the Couscous at this restaurant. I think I had gone during Muslim prayer service , which is why the restaurant was almost completely empty. And I would suggest going there to avoid a wait, as this is an extremely popular restaurant.

Once you managed to find this traditional ryad-style modern moroccon eatier, signature dishes are the pastille 4-dish salad, soup, like hood broth, brochettes with soft potatoes A pleasing experience with unsual flavours and a price to match, just was''t that outstanding (overall) to repeat

The menu is very varied and the prices are reasonable. We had some excellent Moroccan starters followed by delicious grilled sole. Good wine list. Very friendly owner and staff. Attractive decor. Easy to locate - just near the Tour Hassan tram stop.
