Local and food look relatively OK. The portions are not as big (rather small) as the prices (not at all cheap), but we could be reasonably happy if it wasn´t for the terribel experience after dinner. Neither my husband nor myself could sleep due to the severe stomachache. We will never visit it !!

Wanted somewhere special to take some friends for their anniversary meal, and couldn't be more happy with this restaurant. Excellent friendly service and truly authentic food made it a meal to remember. Highly recommended.

We were unusually impressed by this Moroccan restaurant. We found the food quality , options and decor first class. There were some lovely drink options and the salads and soups were better than many of the places we tried on many visits to Morocco. We are looking forward to returning and sharing our experiences with friends and family.

Located in the University district, well away from the busy tourist plazas, this restaurant promised a change from the standard Spanish fare on offer there. From the moment we stepped inside and became engrossed in the magnificent Middle Eastern decor, we felt sure the drive out would be well worth it. It was. The menu was extensive, offering a wide...

We were a group of 8 hungry people and found this on Google. Great food for all sorts adults and kids. Would highly recommend. The only negative thing was that bread was charged separately with everything, which seems odd.

We visited this place on a Sunday evening and asked the waiter if we could sit in a corner and he said no, apparently because that was the only table for four and it was reserved! Well, there were plenty tables for four and all empty. Finally we sat where we wanted to seat and until we were there, the... More

The food is absolutely delicious, various, very tasty but delicate. it brings a truly taste of Mahgreb, with the best cous cous, vegetables, tahine and spices. it is totally... More
