After a very warm welcome we started into our meal with a simple but fantastic carrots with coriander appetizer. As main dish we tried both, couscous et tagine, very nicely balanced taste. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere, thanks for the great evening!

We were looking for a thick, juicy steak after a number of nights of fish, but found that most of the favoured restaurants are closed on Sunday evening. Those that were open did not offer the sort of steak we wanted. Wandering around the town, we came across this restaurant and decided to try it, as we don't know Moroccan... More

Superb cous cous and tagines. Probably the best that I have ever eaten. Unbelievable quality and quantity. Well worth a visit.

Popular with locals and justifiably so. I had the tajine de poulet au citron et olives and was well satisfied. The couscous served with it was perfectly light and delicately flavoured.

Stick to wine if you go here. Beer will bloat you. The food is good - never had a bad meal there. Staff - very helpful. Recommended.

I'd just driven 1000km from the south of France to Calais in a single run and I was work out and hungry. Rather than have French fare I decided to try Le Sesame and I'm glad I did. Service is attentive but not pushy. The food is great value and extremely tasty. I had the chicken tagine with olives and... More

Decided to write this review after not the best tagine experience I have had in Granada. Lamb tagines, one with prunes and almonds and one with onion and raisins are excellent.

Authentic delicious Morrocan food! I have been several times now and have never been disappointed. The owner is friendly and very helpful, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food is just lush. The plates are enormous, but if you are super hungry, you can always ask for more couscous or more vegetables. The prices are also very good. Definitely... More
