Short and simple menu but really really good! Morroccan-french style. All was delicious.
I recommend the "Morrocan speciality", the soup of the day "harira soup" and the "légumes gratinées"
What the rest of the clients asked, looked like really good like tajine of sardines kefta and homemade pasta!

We stumbled on this little place on our last night here, after a few very ordinary meals in other places. The chef is French, with a Moroccan woman also in the kitchen. The menu is small but has daily specials. We found the food excellent and authentic. My husband had harira soup, and sardine meatball tajine with vegetables, and I had Moroccan salad with a chicken pastilla, followed by Moroccan sweets for dessert.
Loved it and wished we were staying longer so we could return.
The owners also runs eco walking tours with information available there, and she sells a book she wrote about Moroccan spices, and 40 recipes. I bought a copy of the book and look forward to more of her dishes at home.

We were expecting “excellent” because of the recommendation in our travel book. We found “very good”.
It’s good food, although not the French delicacy we were expecting.
Still: food is good, homemade and tasty, service is good, ambiance is nice (feels like having dinner at a friend’s house).
Tip: If they have the berry crumble tart: save room for dessert! Worth every calorie.

We ate here based on the trip advisor reviews. Overall the meal was disappointing, we shared salads and brouets to start, these were nice but to have order just one for yourself would have been too little and uninteresting. Those who had pasta for main enjoyed it, those that had the kaftas (meat patties) didn't, they were bland. We wanted to like the meal but it was the least interesting one we had, plenty of better places to eat, including Tolerance opposite
