Nice quiet place that's tucked away in a quiet corner in the Medina not far from Place Moulay Hassan. Serves French and Moroccan dishes. Chicken supreme was very good; so was the chicken pastilla. The fish soup was delicious. Not pricey. Staff were very friendly.

We stumbled on this small barely marked restaurant tucked between more touristy places and the owner squeezed us in for a delightful fresh seafood feast! There are daily specials and a cozy informal ambience. Service is very slow as everything is prepared fresh and the kitchen is tiny, but they are also very accommodating about special requests. The best kind of world-standard but locally-run and moderately priced!

We can totally recommend this place. It is a very small and cozy restaurant with great food.

We had the Calmar from the suggestions and the Seafood Tagliatelle. Both very good!

On our way home, we realized that we probably didn't pay enough for our food, because we've been there with a few people and it was kind of chaotic at the check-out with our group. So we wanted to say sorry to the manager via TripAdvisor by also rating this place and hope he will forgive us.
Next time we'll make it even again!

Again: we can totally recommend this place and again to the manager: we're so sorry!

It's probably a good thing I didn't re-read my previous review of this place as I'd completely forgotten what a total comedy of errors that meal had been.

We were first in and as they only have 8 tables - each for 2 people - the place soon filled up. There's quite a hard sell on the seafood and a very good selection of fish available. I'd had a nice seafood pasta there before but felt under some pressure to order off the specials this time.

The fish soup was available - often it's not - and it was excellent but way bigger than necessary for a starter. For main we had a seafood tagine - mostly calamari with some added small prawns. It was excellent.

This place is about 50% more expensive than other places nearby. I'm not quite sure how the extra costs are justified.

Visited as a couple and chose from their specials board which was a variety of different seafood and we were not disappointed. Starting with the pil pil (a slightly spicy seafood tagine) my wife then followed with some excellent king prawns off the grill and I had the calamari tagine. Deserts were simple but good and service was excellent. If they’re full when you get there they are worth a wait.
