We arrived before they opened so we were offered seating outside with bread and olives. Both were very tasty and flavoursome. A cocktail stick would've been handy to eat the olives from the lovely sauce but that's me nit picking. Inside it is very quaint...More

I've been here a few times as I live locally. The food is hit and miss and sometimes you are left waiting a long time. It's probably because the restaurant has very minimal staff, but they are always friendly and if they do forget something...More

We are a family run authentic moroccan bistro on the wells road between totterdown and knowle. Established 14 years ago we operate on a B.Y.O basis allowing the customer to bring the tipple of their choice. We use traditional moroccan recipes from tagines to meshwi and relax in the moroccan bedouin seating or the more traditional bistro seating. We can cater for large groups and belly dancing can be arranged. So come and enjoy a taste of morocco in Bristol. AS WITH ALL TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN RECIPES TAGINES DO TAKE A WHILE TO COOK SO WE WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED FAST FOOD.
