No big complaints, but I wouldn't say that this place was too memorable. Service was ok and generally friendly. The chicken cuscus was nice, but apart from the superb bread appetizers need more attention. I hear a belly dancer is on show Thursday nights.. Thankfully,...More

The vegetarian made to order risotto was simply superb. The flavour of the food is fantastic! Do not get discouraged by the belly dancing's tacky poster just outside the restaurant.

there aren't many Tunisian or Maroccan restaurants in town. This is one of the few existing that serves a fairly good meat couscous. The vegetarian one was too and the the appetizers very tasty and all the dishes abundant. Only the rbik is disappointing!

Excellent restaurant to taste Arabian dishes contaminated with traditional Sicilian dishes. The place is decorated as a typical Arabian restaurant.
