Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In one word, superior. The food is authentic from the Mahreb region. Besides the excellent quality, is the quantity. So much food. And try the tea. Real Moroccan mint. Best ever. We really enjoyed our visit to the restaurant. And for a nice setting, make...a reservation in the tent.More

7pm Saturday evening. Restaurant had just opened and we got a table without booking - luckily apparently. - Parking - we went to Evian on the motorbike, as we already knew parking a car would be terrible. - Welcome: Friendly. Shown to a table outside....Interestingly, many people arrived without a mask on, and even though the staff said it was obligatory, they still showed them to a table. Maybe under pressure from their boss to get as many people in as possible. Their boss was talking very loudly at them before the restaurant opened (you could hear it outside). - Menu: plenty of choice. The food was quite heavy, so choose wisely during the summer. - Service: Friendly and helpful. - Pricing: For what we had, l do think it was high on price, but it is Evian..... - Toilet: Make sure you visit the toilet, it is beautifully decorated. - Would we go again? Maybe in the winter.More

We have been considered as less than nothing. We asked to have a place for tea and chicha and we have been told no place a child is sleeping and then we discovered that they were trying to get rid of us because they had...better customers. So they kept 8 seats empty for better humans may be!!. The dishes were not very good. Too sweet for some and lots of spices for other.

It took two people to take my call asking for a reservation as if it were something so complicated, to get a second person who told me "not possible" incessantly and wouldn't even listen to me (whether I spoke French or English to him). It...took me by surprised as I read on the reviews the staff was nice (??!) not what I experienced on the phone. I think the rudeness started after I mentioned we would be six people of which two are kids. Which leads to think not exactly family oriented and not exactly nice as the man started insisting loudly I should go some other time. Aren't you supposed to treat well your customers even by phone? not just personally.More

The restaurant is located next door to the Hilton and was open on Monday night when many places were closed. Clearly popular with locals as well as tourists. The staff could not have been more welcoming & patient with our limited French. Their English was...great . The food is a spectacular - I only wish we had more people as the larger tables had a feast. We ordered the beautiful eggplant starter which was not only delicious but a delight for the eyes with a selection of exotic fruit & other goodies. My husband had the Couscous Royal which was enough for 3 people and he loved it. The succulent meats and perfect vegetables were memorable. I had the classic bastilla which was super! I cannot day enough - We found this to be a delight well beyond most restaurants in Evian.More

This is a lovely restaurant, recommended to us by friends. We took the opportunity to eat here due to its location opposite the lake and the outdoor concert area where we watched the wonderful TIBZ perform. We were greeted warmly and seated in a beautiful...outside area under a canopy (it had threatened to rain). It was very atmospheric and Moroccan in design and set the tone for a lovely evening. The menu is principally tagines and cous-cous dishes which were delicious and portion sizes large. Very tasty but it would have been good to have a little more variety, especially for children. Desserts were tasty, especially the selection of pastries. Not cheap but then the location, quality of ingredients and setting probably justified it.More

I would recommend any dish you like, whether it’s meat, chicken, vegetables or even fish. The way...the food is cooked with quality spices makes it mouthwatering and enjoyable.
