Ordered two tagines and some Moroccan soup and lentil dish.... More

Previous reviews indicate this restaurant serves Italian food. This does not appear to be the case any longer, but we wanted to eat Moroccan, so no worries there. We shared a starter - Zalook. Similar to ratatouille, served with tasty little sausages. We had two tagines with couscous - a vegetable one, and a meatball one with an egg craked... More

I've ordered the lamb tangine with rice and the quality was superb! Everything was perfect about the dish. The others on my table ordered something else on the menu (eg. fish tagine, soup) and absolutely loved their dishes too. Don't worry if you cannot decide what to have because they are all going to be delicious anyway. The staff were... More

I am rating the experience as well as the food and both are excellent. The staff are great, Hichem and his team. Hichem is Moroccan and his wife Italian, hence the two cuisines in the same restaurant. They contrive together to make a fabulous atmosphere and brilliant food. I went here last Monday for lunch with a friend who lives... More

Found this café when going to the Odeon cinema right opposite across Holloway Road. Basic with an outside toilet but food excellent. The service is also very helpful and friendly. If you are going to the cinema definitely include this eatery as part of your outing.
