Before going here, we had one excellent and one very good dinner in CadAques, both expensive. Settings were lovely, etc. - no complaint. For the third night, we wanted to dial down the expense and we found Mama Aicha on TA. Frankly, it was our best meal in Cadaques. Yes, the family runs the place and we met both Mama and her very appealing son. We took our own wine, as there is no corkage fee. We had three dishes - the avocado salad and a meat filled pastry w salad for starters. Outstanding, and then we shared an ananchovy tagine with tomatoes and potatoes that I could not do justice in describing. We slowed down to savor each fantastic bite. And the setting was the modest garden of what is obviously the family home, which we found charming and intimate. The cost was less than half the other dinners. Do yourself a favor and find Mama’s.

after discovering the place we had to go back as soon as we could.
which made us eat here twice in less than 12 hours.
cous cous, tajine, salads and starters were outstanding.
all the food is freshly home made in a one lady kitchen.
hospitality and quality of food that is rarely seen in europe. the food, hospitable and humble atmosphere brought us right into the vibrant and flaverful world of morrocco. we will come again and would recommend everyone that likes home made, flaverful and love-packed foods, to visit mama aicha in cadaques.
the tea, by the way, was also authentic moroccan style and amazing.

We had our dinner here based on reviews from previous guests. The food was delicious, 100% organic and they even went out to buy me beer since they did not serve it themselves. The service was excellent, and Mama Aicha herself served us the entire evening.

Recommended for parties all sizes.

This is a restaurant that most people walk past without giving it a second glance. That would be to your detriment, as the courtyard through the side door is quite lovely. Please note that they do not service alcohol, but are more than happy for you to bring your own - no corkage fee.
We were served by Mama Aicha herself, who took the time to explain the various dishes. I tried the Moroccan ribs (I know, meat at the sea side!). It was succulent and delicious, flavoured with a light sprinkling of Moroccan spices. The anchovies on toast were also a culinary delight. This is simple almost home cooking of a high standard. Well worth the visit

A family-run restaurant offering a wide variety of authentic Maroccan dishes framed in a lovely garden or an ispiring dining room. Perfect in summer as well as in winter.
