It is a nice little cosy restaurant with very good food at a great price. We visited the place twice during our stay. We liked everything we ordered - aubergine starter, briouats, harira, tajine kefta, vegetable cous cous... I highly reccommend it.

If you need to wait for the table, please wait. The richness of simple flavours has brought my happiest childhood memories. The place is tiny and cozy. Only a few tables. It feels like coming to visit a granny. Not a fancy place by far,...More
