We stayed here for two nights, the Riad is very comfortable and stylish and perfectly situated to explore the walled city. The breakfast buffet was served in the attractive garden courtyard, there was a marvellous choice of lovely things to choose from.

What a gem of a place. Hard to describe what a fantastic venue this is and the quality of food on offer. A heady mix of Moroccan design and old colonial grandness carries over to the food. I would seriously recommend making a full evening...More
