This is a very small restaurant (20 seats maximum) and that's why the food is so good. Quality food, wonderful service... you just need to book your table in advance to be sure to get served. My 5***** are well deserved !

Friendly service and delicious food. We had two different lamb tagines with couscous. Got busy very quickly so we were glad we booked. My Morrocon tagine was very tasty with good quality and quantity of lamb, the same for the other one we tried. Owner is friendly and waiters are too.

Everything was excellent, absolutely gorgeously prepared, every single piece of meat was well seasoned, delicious!!! You might find this restaurant... More

All the compliments in the other reviews are thoroughly deserved. La Menara was one of the highlights of our stay in St Raphael.

The food is without a doubt the best couscous in the town, and it wouldn't be unrealistic to say the best couscous in the region. If you're looking for a brochette d'agneau, ring up and order in advance as it is order in advance only.

If you like Moroccan food then you will love this place. If you get the chance to get a table at this restaurant by just turning up then take it as it seems to be heavily booked up in advance. This is a sign of how good this little place is. If you can't get in on your first visit... More

Excellent family-run restaurant with delicious Moroccan specialities. Very warm welcome and friendly staff. The tea and cakes are great too ! Book a table in advance as they are often fully booked.
