The building is much better than the food lets get that out of the way. Typical tagines preceded by an acre of much better salads and a basket of bread. The food was edible but soaked in oil. The salads had a great variety of vegetables and spices.

Been taken by a guide from the riad, it's in the heart of the Medina so once you are there you feel you can't scape. We were afraid that if we leave we would not be able to go back. The service is bad, the food is ok but it's totally overpriced. They don't accept credit card. We were totally ripped off. Terrible experience.

Incredible Merinide palace of the 14th century with extremely refined decoration. Just worth having a meal there for the great setting. My favourites were the starters. Among them a great beet salad perfumed with strawberriers and orange juice and a courgettes dish with fresh coriander. I'll try to reproduce the beet salad when I'll back home. So delicious!

We visited as a group and had a delicious lunch which was not too expensive ad was served by friendly waiters. We really enjoyed it. The building is lovely.

We were recommended here by our hotel and I am so glad we were! Food was great, the palais is beautiful and the prices were good too! The wine was a bit pricey but I think that's just the price of alcohol in Morocco. Highly recommend this place! Vegetarian friendly!
